Clinton May Have Tampered With Benghazi Documents

The State Department and Hillary Clinton’s staff may have vetted the documents detailing the response to the Benghazi attack on Sept. 11, 2012 that went to the Accountability Review Board as it investigated the attack. Raymond Maxwell, former deputy assistant secretary, heard the state department would comb through the documents on a Sunday afternoon. Curious, he walked into the State Department basement to discover Clinton’s aides pouring through boxes of documents. According to The Daily Signal, an office director told Maxwell, “‘Ray, we are to go through these stacks and pull out anything that might put anybody in the [Near Eastern Affairs] front office or the seventh floor in a bad light,’” says Maxwell. He says ‘seventh floor’ was State Department shorthand for then-Secretary of State Clinton and her principal advisers.“ Maxwell was later singled out for discipline and placed on administrative leave. Unlike Richard Nixon, who hired outside people to do his dirty work, Clinton’s aides just rolled up their sleeves and got dirty.
