Benghazi Widow: Hillary 'Has No Right' to Tell Me 'It's Time to Move On'

“Nobody in government can tell me how I feel, what I should feel about it."

The wife of Benghazi victim Ty Woods spoke out for the first time in an interview with CNN's Erin Burnett. Dr. Dorothy Woods told Burnett how she felt about Hillary Clinton's remarks about the recent Benghazi report released by Congressman Trey Gowdy's select committee.

“Nobody in government can tell me how I feel, what I should feel about it,” Woods told Burnett. “She has no right — nor does anyone in government have the right — to tell me it’s time to move on. They’re not in my shoes.”

While at a campaign stop in Denver, Colorado, Hillary, who was Secretary of State during the Benghazi attack, said, “I’ll leave it to others to characterize the report, but I think it’s pretty clear it’s time to move on.”

Woods said of the congressional committee that despite being "ridiculed" it was “sincerely doing the right thing.”

“It did not change my view of what happened, nor who to blame,” Woods said. “I place a blame on this sentiment, on this attitude in the upper level of government that says, ‘Hey, you know what, I’m just gonna lie about this, gloss over it, because I want to protect what I look like, and I’m thinking about the next job.’”

Woods did agree that the final judgment was up to the public. I agree, in a way, with her, that it’s for the public to decide,” Woods told CNN. “You know, some people have made their decision, others haven’t. But the facts are there and it’s up to the Americans, the American people, to really figure out where they fall in this.”
