Judge throws out lawsuit against Hillary Clinton by parents of Benghazi victims

Hillary-ClintonA federal judge tossed a lawsuit against Hillary Clinton by the parents of two Americans killed at a diplomatic compound in Benghazi, Libya, ruling Friday the former secretary of state did not defame them when disputing allegations that she had lied.

“The untimely death of plaintiffs’ sons is tragic, and the Court does not mean to minimize the unspeakable loss that plaintiffs have suffered in any way,” U.S. District Judge Amy Berman Jackson in Washington wrote in a 29-page opinion.

The suit also alleged Clinton’s use of a private email server caused the death of their sons, Sean Smith and Tyrone Woods, because it exposed terrorists to sensitive information. They claimed Clinton lied when she allegedly told them it was a YouTube video that prompted the consulate attack.

Berman ruled the parents didn’t sufficiently challenge that Clinton was not acting in her official capacity when she used the private server, and that the families didn’t put forward appropriate claims that Clinton defamed them or put them in a false light.

One of the parents, Patricia Smith, gave an emotional speech during the 2016 Republican National Convention against Clinton. Her son and Woods were killed in the September 2012 attack, along with CIA operative Glen Doherty and the U.S. ambassador to Libya, Christopher Stevens.

    Judge needs a new pair of shoes. The heavy kind.

  • roboteq says:

    Only Progressive liberals are allowed justice in today’s upside down judicial system. This is one of the reasons it is so important for Progressives to prevent Hillary Clinton from being convicted of anything relating to her illegal email issues and her lying about why the assault on the embassy in Libya occurred. If Hillary Clinton or the office of the Secretary of State are ever found to be guilty of any of the charges against them, there are many lawsuits that can take place against both Hillary Clinton and the Federal government for negligence, wrongful intent and illegal communications.

  • delbert chaudoin says:

    He HAD to throw it out. He had no intention of committing suicide by stabbing himself in the back 57 times. He also, probably, was shown his suicide note by the Clinton lawyers.

  • nokabosh says:

    She did lie, but the Obama appointed judge doesn’t believe lying to have consequences.

  • tryscavage says:

    The Democrats think that this is a victory but they are completely wrong. The people of this Country know exactly what she did and the people know that we would be prosecuted and imprisoned for the exact same crimes. The Democratic Party has just told the American people that THEY will commit crimes without ever worrying about getting caught because if they do get caught they are ABOVE prosecution. They just lost millions of votes.

      I hope and pray you are right. Common sense would dictate that you should be.

    For the record, Washington D.C. Federal District Judge, Amy Berman Jackson was appointed by Obama on 17 June 2010 to fill a vacant position on that Court. Her nomination lapsed at the end of the year, and Obama re-nominated her on 5 Jan 2011. Jackson was confirmed by a vote of 97-0 by the U..S Senate on 17 March 2011

  • Stikit says:

    It seems the families weren’t represented properly…Sad.
    It takes conclusive and indisputable evidence to make a judge roll over a cabinet member of an administration…especially in a liberal court.

  • Askjrsk says:

    This should have been allowed to go forward. Maybe this judge was afraid someone would slip it the pillow.

  • itsfun says:

    Has to be a liberal judge. He seems to say that allowing top secret US documents is okay and so what if Americans get murdered because of it. Next week he will probably issue a ruling that treason is okay.

    1. Askjrsk says:

      If not already done so Another communist judge

    2. Rodney Steward says:

      It was on FOX this morning that the Socialist Judge was an Obama appointee!

      1. itsfun says:

        Doesn’t surprise me one little bit.

    3. delbert chaudoin says:

      NAH!! The Clinton lawyers just showed him his suicide note.

      1. itsfun says:

        Sad, but you are probably right.
