Clinton Testifies

The former secretary of state squares off with the Benghazi committee.

As we go to press today, the House Select Committee on Benghazi is grilling Hillary Clinton. Despite the grandstanding from committee Democrats, her felonious complicity in and her subsequent cover-up of the true story of the deaths of four Americans in Benghazi is on full display.

First, for more than a year, Clinton has endeavored to escape accountability for unlawfully maintaining all of her official secretary of state communications outside of official networks. Clearly, this was an effort to protect her 2016 presidential bid from the plethora of nefarious activities reflected in those emails. Despite Clinton’s claims — “I did not email any classified material to anyone” and “There is no classified material” — it is now apparent that hundreds and perhaps thousands of her unsecured email communications contained sensitive and classified content. Transmitting that content is a felony. But not only was her arrogant “above the law” use of unsecured email illegal, it was deadly because it exposed policy directives and the names of covert operatives. We can assume Russia and China had full access to all of Clinton’s unsecured communication.

Second, additional details may surface about how her emails demonstrate her complicity in formulating the political lie about the murder of our personnel in Benghazi — Christopher Stevens, his aide Sean Smith, and two diplomatic security officers, former Navy SEALs Glen Doherty and Tyrone Woods. Her Benghazi lie was an effort to provide Barack Obama political cover for his “al-Qa'ida on the run” campaign theme just weeks ahead of the 2012 presidential election. So determined was Clinton to propagate this lie that she shamelessly stood in front of those four flag-draped caskets and declared to the families of the dead, “We’ve seen rage and violence directed at American embassies over an awful Internet video that we had nothing to do with.” We will cover this testimony in detail Friday.
