Mike Huckabee is blaming Hillary Clinton for the Benghazi coverup.
As previously reported The Inquisitr, the Hillary Clinton Benghazi allegations came earlier this week when the House of Representatives released a 43 page Benghazi report that also accused President Obama of failing to anticipate a terrorist attack could happen on the anniversary of the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks. This came shortly after Benghazi whistleblowers were told to find lawyers to protect themselves against the government.
It was previously uncovered that someone in Hillary Clinton’s State Department gave Charlene Lamb the idea that there was “too much political cost” for keeping the Benghazi security forces at safer levels. Instead, they lowered the number of diplomatic security agents in Benghazi from 34 to just three. The Hillary Clinton Benghazi allegations also says White House and senior State Department officials “altered accurate talking points drafted by the intelligence community in order to protect the State Department.”
Although she accepted fault for the general failure of the State Department, Hillary Clinton previously denied having anything to do with lowering the security of Benghazi. But the Benghazi report cites documents signed by Hillary Clinton that “articulates a plan to scale back security assets for the U.S. Mission in Libya, including the Benghazi Mission.”
Mike Huckabee chimed in on the Benghazi report, blaming Hillary Clinton and the Obama administration:
“Our diplomats died in Libya, but the questions refuse to die…When former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton was grilled by Congress about her department’s actions on the night four Americans were killed in Benghazi, she snapped, “What difference does it make?” Well, it might make a big difference, if voters read Congress’ report. It concludes that the Administration had plenty of warnings, but failed to heed them or to give the military authority to respond. They also find Secretary Clinton was responsible for cutting security at the US consulate despite knowing of the threats and the pleas for more security, and that the Administration lied to downplay terrorism, first by blaming a YouTube video, then falsely claiming they were trying to protect an FBI investigation. The White House will dismiss it as a partisan attack, but it’s the result of months of investigations by five House committees. I suspect that anyone who claims to have read it and is still unconcerned about the people in charge of our Middle East security is lying to cover up that they didn’t really read it.”
Do you agree with Mike Huckabee about the Benghazi report that blames Hillary Clinton?
