Benghazi Parents Sue Clinton

The suit alleges that the attack “was directly and proximately caused, at a minimum” by Clinton.

The parents of two of the fallen American heroes from the September 11, 2012 Benghazi terrorist attack are launching a lawsuit against Hillary Clinton. The New York Times reports that the family members of Sean Smith and Tyrone Woods claim that Clinton's use of a private, unsecured email server to conduct State Department business was a case of "extreme carelessness" and contributed to the conditions that led to the attacks.

In the wrongful-death lawsuit, Patricia Smith and Charles Woods allege that the attack that killed four Americans, including their sons, Sean Smith and Tyrone Woods, “was directly and proximately caused, at a minimum” by Mrs. Clinton’s use of a private email server while in the State Department.

The suit also accuses Mrs. Clinton of having made “false and defamatory statements negligently, recklessly and purposefully and/or intentionally with malice” in her public comments, including those about the connection between the attack and an anti-Muslim YouTube video.

Both Smith and Woods have endorsed Donald Trump for president, saying he is what is needed to keep America safe.

The Clinton campaign dismissed the lawsuit, pointing to several investigations that showed no wrongdoing on Hillary's part.
