(CNSNews.com) – State Department spokesperson Victoria Nuland said Wednesday that the outcome of the presidential election was never a factor in whether the department would answer all questions surrounding the Sept. 11, 2012 terrorist attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi that killed four Americans, including U.S. ambassador to Libya Chris Stevens.

Instead, she said the department is waiting for the Accountability Review Board (ARB) “to answer all of our questions.”

“And we have tied that to the fact that we have an ARB running. It was never tied to the election,” Nuland said.

Nuland was asked at a State Department briefing whether the department will “answer all of our questions about Benghazi” now that President Barack Obama has been re-elected.

“So now that the election is over, the president has been safely re-elected, you’re going to answer all of our questions about Benghazi or is that too much to hope?” the reporter asked.

“I think you know where we are. We have an ARB running, and the ARB we hope will answer all of our questions,” Nuland said.

“So the answer is no?” the reporter asked.
