Parents of Benghazi victims sue Hillary Clinton in federal court

by Victor Morton - The Washington Times  |  published on August 14, 2016

The parents of two of the Americans killed in the Benghazi terrorist attacks sued Hillary Clinton in federal court Monday, saying the former secretary of state is liable for their deaths.

The lawsuit, filed by Patricia Smith and Charles Woods, blames the attacks in part on the current Democratic presidential nominee’s use of a private email server when she was secretary of state.

The server, which was the object of foreign government hack attempts, enabled the Islamic State allied terrorists to “obtain the whereabouts of Ambassador Christopher Stevens and thus the U.S. State Department and covert and other government operations in Benghazi, Libya and subsequently orchestrate, plan, and execute the now infamous September 11, 2012 attack,” the suit claims.

The lawsuit also accuses Mrs. Clinton of defamation and the infliction of distress, and seeks damages from her on that score too. It claims that “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.”

There was no immediate public response from the Clinton campaign.

    Not much being reported on this law suit. What difference at this point does it make? Dude….that was like 4 years ago.

  • Dolores Adams

    I sure hope they win too and take every dime she has.

    Unfortunately there is no test to be able to vote. Consequently idiots, imbeciles, and morons are allowed to vote. Those of us with IQ’s over 71 are out numbered! The population of Venezuela is about 30.4 million people. With the US population of 330 million how long will it take a Socialist Government to destroy our country? God save our children and our grandchildren! God save America!

    The lawsuit should also claim malfeasance in office and dereliction of duty! I can assure you that if she had been in the military she would be cooling her heels in Leavenworth right now! Someone, please, tell me how she can get off without criminal charges, after committing a criminal act? WHY is she so special that she isn’t even being CHARGED?

    • Anouk

      Ask Barack Hussein Obama. He is the one who is responsible to let this corrupted liar free of charge.
      They should be both in prison with others who are as corrupted and rotten like they are.

    Thanks to our democratic media, we’ll most likely never learn the truth about anything Hillary is or was involved in. This is why Americans, for the most part, are so ignorant about what goes on in Washington. We’re fed only what the press wants us to know. I hope these parents win their case.

    • PC Bob

      The real problem, in America, is public apathy! I know many people who seem to be proud of the fact that they do not ‘follow’ politics, and therefore know NOTHING about what is going on in this country! They are too busy following the Kardashions or watching some mindless pap on TV! Yet, these same people (of ALL political party’s) will vote, not having the slightest idea what the candidates stand for! All they know is what the MSM tells them, in 10 second sound bites! THAT, in a nutshell, is the REAL problem!

      • Anouk

        You are right, these ignorant people who have no clue about the candidates will vote without knowing the consequences of their acts.
        Most of them are only interested in hearing the word “Free”and will vote for the candidate who will promised free goodies to them.
        Sad but true.

    I guess the FBI/AG/etc. will do a “thorough (HA!) investigation and find that hrc did nothing wrong, oh maybe she was just “careless” (could care less) so the findings will be in her favor, no matter what is “NOT” made public.

    Why haven’t the parents of the other two men who were murdered in Benghazi because of hillary’s state dept also sued hillary Benghazi clinton? Not giving the military the permission they requested to rescue the men who were calling for help from Benghazi is tantamount to murder.

    • PC Bob

      It is dereliction of duty which RESULTED in murder! Now, is that reason enough to let her walk free? According to the DOJ and the FBI, apparently so.

  • Rodney Steward

    Hellary, U deserve the same fate as the men U murdered!

  • Dolores Adams

    Hope the people that is suing Hillary wins.

  • Sal Belardo

    I have just one question for Mrs. Clinton! You were sent at least 600 emails from Benghaze asking for more security. Why, oh why wouldn’t you send more security? I’m sure there’s a lie coming my way!

    • 1947goldenjet

      The lie is, wait for it, the Republicans in Congress wouldn’t supply the funding.

      • PC Bob

        Even though the resources were already in place to do that!

        • 1947goldenjet

          Reports are that there were a group of commandos in Spain that were loaded onto and off planes 3 times because the decision couldn’t be made whether to send them in uniforms or in civilian clothes. If I had been in charge during that madness I would have put my men on the plane bareass to solve that problem.

      Thank God, FoxNews is dying a happy death. FoxNews was toxic to regular people, but was welcome to racists, bigots, sexists and primitive. I believe I told you FoxNews and especially Bill O invented Benghazi and e-mails so called scandals. Bill was so powerful that TPs and Repubs in Congress obeyed him to investigate Benghazi. Congress has spent more than $50 mil investigating Benghazi and Benghazi investigators like Comey. They have come out with nothing. Now FoxNews morons are encouraging relatives of Benghazi to sue the Federal government. I am sorry to say they will lose. I encourage Congress and the relatives of Benghazi victims to sue FoxNews for duping Congress and the Nation to spend that money for no issues. Please join me and vote for Hillary on November 8 at 9 am.

        pmbalele–Which one of these are you? An idiot has an IQ of 0-25! An imbecile has an IQ of 26-50! And A moron has an IQ of 51-70! I’m guessing your probably some where in the middle! That’s imbecile!! Where did the 600 emails go? You want to tell me her staff never showed her one email from the ambassador asking for help?

        • pmbalele

          Sal Belardo, you must be either Mexican Portuguese, so watch out your back with Trump supporters. They will deport you. They hate you for being a minority. And your brains have been poisoned by FoxNews who invented Benghazi and e-mail so called scandals. How can they be e-mail be scandals when she is the one who developed or approved e-mail policies in her agency. She was the boss there. Do you own a business where you the top boss? If you do you can violate your rules or amend them as you want fit for you and your employees. So thank God we are now post FoxNews powerful era when Bill O’rielly shouted and TPs and Repubs in Congress shook in their pants. Now FoxNews is dead and we are told Bill O is being laid off. So please wean yourself from FoxNews and start thinking for yourself and future of your kids if you have any. All you heard about Benghazi, although sad we lost 4 Americans, was just cable profit driven. We did not sue Bush II for 911 incident. These incidents occur and we should trust FBI and CIA to do their jobs. Please join me and vote for Hillary on November 8 at 9 am. I will be there to help you since you seem to have an IQ of 85.

          • Sal Belardo

            pmbalaele-Now I know you are an idiot with an IQ of 0-25! With a name like yours you are the one that should be afraid. Hillary will fuck you just as soon as look at you. I do feel sorry for you because life is tough and it’s tougher when your stupid! Go back to school and learn how to write before you try to take me on! Everything you wrote is gibberish! Look it up!
            Hillary is a compulsive, pathological, and serial Liar! And she is a prostitute of the worse kind! She has sold out her country for money! I just took you off the idiot list and put you on the Scumbag list along with Obama the Socialist, Muslim Traitor, Racist,and Lying Scumbag! Have a good life Scumbag!

          He’s one of Clinton’s “USEFUL IDIOTS” who doesn’t care that Clinton is the most corrupt dirt bag who would sell her grandchildren for money, power and control of this great nation. Thing is, these “Useful Idiots” will vote for her anyway, and the Communist will win. Disgusts the HELL out of me that evil is completely defended in this country. AND OH, BTW, there is nothing more disgusting than the liberal media, nearly everyone of them lie and spin to protect Clinton and the Arab/Muslim/usurper, and do you know WHY? Not only are they all liberal loons who hate what America stands for, but the big wigs in all these media sources aforementioned are also related to some powerful person in the Clinton and BO regimes. HOW DARE YOU say Fox is toxic then defend ABC, NBC, CBS, BSNBC, and CNN the Communist News Network also known as the Clinton News Network. It takes a brain and common sense to fight all of you Liberal/Communist, and we will do it!
