Tennessee Senator Bob Corker says he can find no heroes in Washington when it comes to the situation in Benghazi.

Wednesday in D.C., Corker and other lawmakers grilled U.N. Ambassador Susan Rice on her initial account of the deadly attack on the U.S. consulate on September 11. It's the second day of closed door meetings.

Afterward, Sen. Corker told reporters the issue of Benghazi is "a tawdry affair." He also said he's extremely disappointed in how the nation handled the crisis.

"I'm disappointed in the way we communicate about what happens in our country. I'm disappointed that candidly in this particular case that everything was done around it as relates to sharing information with the American people was about politics. It was about politics with four Americans dead," he said.

Rice is believed to be President Obama's choice to become the next secretary of state. However, Corker says he wants the president to step back for a moment before making the nomination.
