I know. You’re as shocked as I am. Will Benghazi be Hillary’s Watergate?
Updated from ABC News, re this latest email dump:
A State Department official tells ABC News that in this release alone 328 documents were upgraded to a classified level, meaning that they were redacted and are unavailable for public review. So far 999 have been graded as classified
From the Washington Examiner:
A new batch of Hillary Clinton’s emails made public Monday by the State Department indicate the former secretary of state was worried about whether she had overplayed the administration’s Benghazi narrative, blaming the attack on a demonstration over a YouTube clip, less than two weeks after four Americans at the diplomatic compound in Benghazi were killed.
More than three years after the attack, Clinton is only now facing questions about how she characterized the raid.
Jake Sullivan, a top Clinton aide, assured the former secretary of state on Sept. 24, 2012 that she had not misled the public on the impetus of the terror attacks nearly two weeks earlier.
“You never said spontaneous or characterized the motives,” Sullivan wrote in an email to Clinton. “In fact you were careful in your first statement to say we were assessing motive and method. The way you treated the video in the Libya context was to say that some sought to *justify* the attack on that basis.”
Sullivan compiled a list of all the public statements Clinton had made about Benghazi up to that date so she could remember exactly what she had said so far.
Emails sent the night of the attack indicate Clinton did indeed receive updates about the unfolding violence in Benghazi via her private, unsecured email network, contrary to her testimony in an Oct. 22 hearing before the House Select Committee on Benghazi.
OF COURSE I know that this latest shoe to drop isn’t news to you. Please don’t stop reading because you think I’m an idiot. The question is what sort of coverage, if any, this latest revelation will get on the pretend news. If any of you are monitoring the network “news,” please let me know what they report. In the meantime, if you know any democrat Kool-Aid drinkers, you might want to share this post. I know you think that they are beyond the reach of facts and reason, but you never know. As the liberals like to say, if just one mush-headed, emotionally-driver little soul has his head set right because of your actions, it will all be worth it.
