Two Benghazi Parents File Lawsuit Against Hillary Clinton’ Say ‘Lies’ Told Were ‘Effort’ To Save Obama’s Re-Election Chances, HRC’s 2016 Bid

Two Benghazi parents are bringing a lawsuit against former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, characterizing her perpetration of “lies” to the American public as “an effort to save the re-election chances of President Barack Obama” as well as “her own chances,” according to the complaint filed in the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia by Larry Klayman of Freedom Watch USA, and they do not mince any words in the lawsuit.

“Immediately after the attack, Defendant Clinton, in an effort to save the re-election chances of President Barack Obama, and in turn, her own chances at the 2016 Presidency, lied to Plaintiffs and the public at large that the Benghazi Attacks were caused by Islamic reaction over an anti- Muslim YouTube video that had been posted on the internet.”

But the complaint from Patricia Smith and Charles Woods goes on from that.

“These lies were perpetrated despite the fact that she knew immediately that this video was actually not the cause of the attack—information that she shared with the Prime Minister of Egypt and her own daughter, Chelsea Clinton, but hid from Plaintiffs and the public at large.”

The Complaint

“Hillary Rodham Clinton (“Defendant Clinton”), who was the U.S. Secretary of State at the time, has since been found to have used a private e-mail server to send and receive confidential and classified government information, often concerning matters of national security, during her tenure,” the lawsuit reads. “In fact, Director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation (“FBI”), James Comey, publicly stated that Defendant Clinton, at a minimum, was ‘extremely careless’ in handling confidential and classified government information and ‘there is evidence of potential violations of the statutes regarding the handling of classified information.'”

While it is noted over at NBC News by Pete Williams that “no such connection has ever been established,” the parents of Sean Smith, an information management officer, and Tyrone Woods, a security officer, who were both stationed in Benghazi believe that it is “highly probable” there is a connection. This is due to the “extreme carelessness” publicly mentioned by the Director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation, James Comey.

Comey’s statement on the Clinton e-mail investigation was quoted over at the website for Real Clear Politics. “Although we did not find clear evidence that Sec. Clinton or her colleagues intended to violate laws governing the handling of classified information, there is evidence that they were extremely careless.”

“Ten Years In Prison”

So Rudy Giuliani, a former candidate for the Office of the President, made a comment on the subject written up by Tim Hains. “The definition of gross negligence under the law is extreme carelessness,” according to Giuliani and thus he believed that the FBI “… clearly found a direct violation of 18 United States code section 793 which does not require intent — it requires only gross negligence in the handling of anything relating to the national defense.”

According to the story, Giuliani stated that this is a “violation of 18 United States Code, section 793, which is not a minor statute, it carries ten years in prison.”

The story over at Fox News also carries some of the same information on the lawsuit. Specifically, the “reckless handling” point made in the lawsuit which Clinton is accused of by officials in the handling of classified information. The parents believe this may have contributed to the deaths on that specific night.

Also Charged: Clinton “defamed Plaintiffs”

But there is an important quote from the Fox story, which Klayman made regarding the matter and Clinton’s behavior. Klayman made another big point in the complaint.

“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.”
