Hillary Clinton was plagued by many scandals during her unsuccessful presidential campaign last year. Now, it appears that one of them has come back to bite her in a big way.
As Congress continued its investigation into the 2012 Benghazi terrorist attack and Clinton’s role in it, families of two of the Benghazi victims sued Clinton in Federal Court.
“Having used a secret private email server that we now know was used to communicate with Ambassador Christopher Stevens with confidential and classified government information, and which we also now know was likely hacked by hostile adversaries such as Iran, Russia, China and North Korea aligning with terrorist groups, it is clear that Hillary Clinton allegedly negligently and recklessly gave up the classified location of the plaintiffs’ son, resulting in a deadly terrorist attack that took their lives,” said Larry Klayman, a lawyer for Freedom Watch USA, a watchdog group that filed the lawsuit on behalf of Patricia Smith and Charles Woods.
The suit claims that Clinton was negligent in her handling of classified information and that she personally defamed the families of the victims after they publicly revealed that Clinton lied to them about the nature of the attack.
“During her campaign for President, Defendant Clinton has negligently, recklessly, and/or maliciously defamed Plaintiffs by either directly calling them liars, or by strongly implying that they are liars, in order to protect and enhance her public image and intimidate and emotionally harm and silence them to not speak up about the Benghazi attack on at least four separate occasions,“ Klayman wrote in his complaint.
Clinton has spoken out to deny lying to the families. However, she has continued to call THEM liars as she tries to defend herself.
“I understand the grief and the incredible sense of loss that can motivate that,” Clinton said. “As other members of families who’ve lost loved ones have said, that’s not what they heard. I don’t hold any ill feeling for someone who, in that moment, may not fully recall everything that was or wasn’t said.”
