First on CNN: White House releases 100 pages of Benghazi e-mails

By Jake Tapper, CNN Chief Washington Correspondent

(CNN)– The White House released more than 100 pages of e-mails on Wednesday in a bid to quell critics who say President Barack Obama and his aides played politics with national security following the deadly attack on the U.S. diplomatic compound in Benghazi, Libya.

The exchanges detailing discussions between top Obama administration officials from multiple agencies suggest the CIA took the lead in developing talking points to describe the attack last September 11 that killed Ambassador Christopher Stevens and three other Americans.

Jeb Bush explains juggling stances on immigration issue

Watch Jake Tapper's interview with Jeb Bush today during the 4pm ET hour of "The Situation Room."

(CNN) – Amidst criticisms that he's flip-flopped on a key part of immigration reform, former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush acknowledged Tuesday that he's been supportive both of a pathway to citizenship for undocumented immigrants and of a lesser measure granting only legal status, saying his position is underscored by a desire to de-incentivize illegal immigration to the United States.

Speaking with Jake Tapper, CNN's chief Washington correspondent and anchor of the upcoming weekday program "The Lead," Bush said that while his new book "Immigration Wars" specifically says immigrants who came to the U.S. illegally should be barred from a pathway to citizenship, he could support such a pathway if it's proposed by lawmakers this year.
