Harry Reid on when the White House notified Congress of the Bergdahl-Taliban swap: "What difference does it make?"

A reporter asked, "How come it seems that you were the only one who got a heads-up the day before?"

Senate majority leader Reid answered, "I'm not sure I'm the only one. I mean, this is making a big deal over nothing. The whole deal, is it Friday or Saturday? What difference does it make? What difference does it make?"
