Angry Republicans don't know where Benghazi is, and journalist Jonathan Karl admits that he never saw the rumored Benghazi cover-up email. (7:39)

( CHEERS AND APPLAUSE )

>> Stephen: WELCOME TO THE

REPORT, EVERYBODY.

[ CHEERS AND APPLAUSE ]

GOOD TO HAVE YOU WITH US.

>> STEPHEN!

STEPHEN!

STEPHEN!

[ CHEERS AND APPLAUSE ]

>> Stephen: OH, I LOVE A ZOMBIE

ARMY.

HAVE A SEAT.

NATION, YOU KNOW, FOLKS, IF YOU

WATCH THE NEWS LIKE I DO, IT

SEEMS LIKE LATELY PRESIDENT

OBAMA CANNOT SWING A DEAD CAT

WITHOUT HITTING SOME SORT OF

SCANDAL.

WHICH REMINDS ME, WHAT'S HE

DOING WITH ALL THESE DEAD CATS?

THE CHALLENGE IS, FOLKS, WHICH

ONE TO COVER.

AS ALWAYS, I LOOK TO MY

JOURNALISTIC HEROES: CRONKITE,

MURROW, BARKER.

SO TONIGHT, I AM PROUD TO

INTRODUCE FOR THE FIRST TIME ON

THE COLBERT REPORT THE OBAMA

SCANDAL BOOTH.

[ CHEERS AND APPLAUSE ]

WELCOME.

WELCOME TO THE OBAMA SCANDAL

BOOTH.

BROUGHT TO YOU BY MAZDA AND THE

SCANDALOUSLY SLEEK REDESIGN OF

THE ALL NEW 2014 MAZDA SIX.

MAZDA: IT'S NOT YOUR FATHER'S

OLDSMOBILE.

BECAUSE IT'S A MAZDA.

NOW INSIDE THIS BOOTH ARE SLIPS

OF PAPER, EACH WITH THE NAME OF

A WHITE HOUSE SCANDAL: I.R.S.,

A.P., BENGHAZI, IMMORTAL

SCORPION SOLDIERS.

OH, IT'S COMING OUT.

AND JUST MOMENTS FROM NOW,

LADIES AND GENTLEMEN, I WILL

ENTER THE BOOTH AND, LIKE MY

COLLEAGUES, GRASP WILDLY AT ANY

ACCUSATION THAT FLOATS PAST.

TEN SECONDS...

[ CHEERS AND APPLAUSE ]

JIMMY, TEN SECONDS ON THE CLOCK,

PLEASE.

JIMMY.

LET'S GET READY TO SCANDAL.

[ CHEERS AND APPLAUSE ]

AND TONIGHT'S SCANDAL IS

BENGHAZI.

[ CHEERS AND APPLAUSE ]

YES, BENGHAZI.

FOLLOWING THE TRAGIC ATTACKS OF

EIGHT MONTHS AGO, BENGHAZI AND

THE RUMORED COVER-UP HAS BECOME

PROBLEM NUMBER ONE FOR THE OBAMA

ADMINISTRATION.

>> SOME REPUBLICANS SAY THE

BENGHAZI SCANDAL WILL CAUSE

PRESIDENT OBAMA'S DOWNFALL.

A SURVEY FROM PUBLIC POLICY

POLLING SHOWS 41% OF REPUBLICANS

CONSIDER IT IS TO BE THE BIGGEST

POLITICAL SCANDAL IN AMERICAN

HISTORY.

>> Stephen: YES, BENGHAZI IS THE

BIGGEST SCANDAL SINCE SLICED

BREAD WAS CAUGHT FUNNELING MONEY

TO NICARAGUAN DEATH SQUADS.

FOLKS, IF REPUBLICANS ARE ANGRY

NOW, IMAGINE HOW THEY'LL FEEL

WHEN THEY LEARN WHERE BENGHAZI

IS.

>> OF THE REPUBLICANS 39% DON'T

KNOW WHERE BENGHAZI IS.

6% THINK IT'S IN CUBE I CAN'T...

[ CHEERS AND APPLAUSE ]

>> Stephen: FOLKS, I SAY THIS

JUST PROVES THAT THE SCANDAL IS

GLOBAL FROM BENGHAZI, ARGENTINA,

ALL THE WAY TO BENGHAZI, JAPAN.

THIS COULD EVEN HURT OBAMA IN

HIS HOMETOWN OF BENGHAZI,

ILLINOIS.

NOW, REPUBLICANS HAVE ACCUSED

THE WHITE HOUSE AND STATE

DEPARTMENT OF PARTISAN,

POLITICAL WHITE WASHING OF THE

TALKING POINTS THAT AMBASSADOR

SUSAN RICE USED ON THE SUNDAY

SHOWS AFTER THE ATTACK TO HELP

OBAMA'S RE-ELECTION.

BUT WHITE HOUSE SPOKESMAN JAY

CARNEY REPEATEDLY DENIED THE

WHITE HOUSE OR STATE DEPARTMENT

MADE SUBSTANTIVE CHANGES TO THE

TALKING POINTS BUT ON MAY 10,

ABC NEWS SUPER SLEUTH JONATHAN

KARL UNCOVERED AN EMAIL FROM THE

WHITE HOUSE'S DEPUTY NATIONAL

SECURITY ADVISOR BEN RHODES AND

JOHN KARL QUOTED, QUOTE, WE MUST

MAKE SURE THAT THE TALKING

POINTS REFLECT ALL AGENCY

EQUITIES INCLUDING THOSE OF THE

STATE DEPARTMENT.

A WHITE HOUSE EMAIL IMPLICATING

THE STATE DEPARTMENT AND BOOM

GOES THE SCANDAL-MITE.

YOU SEE WITH THIS EMAIL JAY

CARNEY IS A LIAR AND THESE FOLKS

ARE IN THIS SCANDAL UP TO THEIR

BALL-GHAZIS.

END OF STORY.

EXCEPT THE ACTUAL STORY.

>> WE OBTAINED AN ACTUAL COPY OF

THE BEN RHODES' EMAIL.

AND HE DOESN'T MENTION THE STATE

DEPARTMENT.

HE DOESN'T MENTION TALKING

POINTS.

>> THERE IS NO EVIDENCE, SCOTT,

THE WHITE HOUSE ORCHESTRATED

THESE CHANGES.

>> THERE IS NO INDICATION IN ANY

OF THESE EMAILS OF ANY PARTISAN

DELETING, SCRUBBING OF THE

FACTS.

>> Stephen: SHUT UP, CHRIS.

YOU'RE ON FOX NEWS, FOR GOD'S

SAKES.

[ CHEERS AND APPLAUSE ]

I MEAN, WHAT PART OF "FAIR AND

BALANCEDDED" DO YOU UNDERSTAND?

ANYWAY, SO WHAT.

JONATHAN KARL DIDN'T NEED THE

ORIGINAL EMAIL.

HE HAS A SIMPLE EXPLANATION.

"THIS IS HOW I REPORTED THE

CONTENTS OF THAT EMAIL, QUOTING

VERBATIM A SOURCE WHO REVIEWED

THE ORIGINAL DOCUMENTS AND

SHARED DETAILED NOTES."

YES, KARL NEVER SAW THE EMAIL SO

WHEN HE QUOTED FROM IT, THOSE

QUOTES WERE IN QUOTES.

I MEAN, THAT'S JUST WHAT YOU

CALL JOURNALISM.

NOW I WAS SURPRISED...

[ CHEERS AND APPLAUSE ]

I WAS SURPRISED THAT THIS PAST

SUNDAY JON KARL WASN'T ON "THIS

WEEK WITH GEORGE STEPHANAPOLOUS"

OR AT THE VERY LEAST "WALKING

BACK YOUR STATEMENTS WITH THE

STARS."

BUT NATION, TOMORROW NIGHT, I

WILL HAVE AN EX-CLUES I'VE

INTERVIEW WITH JONATHAN KARL TO

DISCUSS THE BENGHAZI EMAILS.

[ CHEERS AND APPLAUSE ]

THANK YOU.

THAT REALLY WASN'T NECESSARY.

I JUST RECEIVED A CONFIRMATION

EMAIL FROM JONATHAN KARL HIMSELF

IN WHICH HE WRITES, QUOTE, I

WOULD LOVE TO APPEAR ON THE

COLBERT REPORT.

MY NAME IS JONATHAN KARL.

P.S., MY LOWER BODY IS MOSTLY

RACOON.

( APPLAUSE )

NOW, I AM AWARE THAT SOME

QUESTIONS HAVE ARISEN.

IS THAT EMAIL REAL?

YES.

DID I WRITE IT MYSELF?

PERHAPS.

DID I PERSONALLY SIGN UP FOR THE

EMAIL ADDRESS "HOT KARL 4 YOU AT

G-MAIL DOT-COM?

YES.

BUT IT HAD NOTHING TO DO WITH

THIS STORY.

THE POINT IS, I QUOTED THAT

EMAIL VERBATIM.

AND IF NEED BE, I WILL GET

CONFIRMATION.

LET ME JUST MAKE A LITTLE CALL

HERE.

IT'S CONFIRMED.

ARE YOU SURE?

YES.

CONFIRMED.
