But now there’s a new power to have Hillary Clinton stand trial for one of the most significant scandals in current American history …
PARENTS OF BENGHAZI VICTIMS: HILLARY SHOULD STAND TRIAL
Filing in federal court: Clinton lied about circumstances of terror attack
The parents of only two of the victims of the Benghazi terror attack – which was executed by Muslim terrorists but blamed by Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton on an imprecise YouTube video – have filed a brief in the District of Columbia Court of Appeals reasoning that Clinton should stand trial for telling lies about the deaths.
The case brought by Larry Klayman of Freedom Watch on behalf of Patricia Smith and Charles Woods charged Clinton of telling lies about the attack and then defaming the families of the victims by promoting they were lying.
The case charging Clinton with “defamation, false light, and intentional infliction of emotional distress” was sacked at the lower courts, which ruled Clinton was operating within the scope of her employment, secretary of state, at the time.
That, the opinion discovered, included her usage of a private, unauthorized and unsecured email system through which data was sent that “directly led to the deaths of appellants’ sons.”
Clinton earlier narrowly steered clear of a default judgment that was entered in a case in the lower court over her liability for the deaths of Americans in Benghazi when an Obama-appointed judge adopted statements that she wasn’t properly served.
“Whether or not the defendant was served with process in accordance with the applicable state law, defendant is now on notice of this lawsuit, and counsel entered an appearance on her behalf of Sept. 15, 2016,” authored Judge Amy Berman Jackson in her earlier choice.
Klayman went to court in Washington on behalf of Patricia Smith, the mother of Sean Smith, and Charles Woods, the father of Tyrone Woods. The parents refer to the FBI’s determination that Clinton’s handling of classified information through the use of a nonsecure, private email server was “extremely careless.”
The plaintiffs affirmed that Clinton lied about the cause of the terror attack, as well as in statements to them, informing them in a private meeting that the attack was induced by a little-known video.
Smith and Woods were murdered in the Sept. 11, 2012, jihadist attack on the American compound in Benghazi. While Clinton and other Obama administration officials were publicly blaming the deaths on a reaction to the YouTube video, internal communications demonstrate they knew immediately that it was a terrorist attack.
The wrongful death claim also states defamation and intentional and negligent infliction of emotional distress.
Klayman’s original filing revealed: “Having used a secret private email server that we now know was used to communicate with Ambassador Christopher Stevens with confidential and classified government information, and which we also now know was likely hacked by hostile adversaries such as Iran, Russia, China and North Korea aligning with terrorist groups, it is clear that Hillary Clinton allegedly negligently and recklessly gave up the classified location of the plaintiffs’ sons, resulting in a deadly terrorist attack that took their lives. It is no coincidence that covert State Department/CIA operations were being run out of Benghazi.
“To add insult to deadly injury, Hillary Clinton told the plaintiffs that their sons were killed as the result of a video mocking the Islamic prophet Mohammed when she knew that they were murdered by Muslim terrorists. When the families exposed her lies, she called them liars to protect her reputation and to further her own presidential ambitions. She thus defamed the parents of fallen heroes Tyrone Woods and Sean Smith, and committed other wrongful acts, as alleged in the complaint.”
The appellate court filing protests that the lower court designed assumptions in Hillary Clinton’s favor, and the true problem that requires a full court process is that
“Islamic terrorists were able to locate Ambassador Christopher Stevens, Sean Smith, and Tyrone Woods and orchestrate and execute the Benghazi attack” because of Clinton’s use of unsecured email, and that she then made false statements to try to cover up the problems that allowed an attack to occur.
“Plaintiffs-appellants respectfully request this honorable court to vacate and reverse the district court’s holding and remand the case for further proceedings,” the filing challenges.
The truthfulness of Clinton’s claim that she did not defame the victims’ families is for a jury to determine, the brief argues.
“The district court mistakenly took these viable causes of action away from a jury and the district court decision must be vacated,” Klayman outlined.
“[Clinton’s] defamatory statements – that plaintiffs-appellants are not telling the truth, strongly implying that they lied in order to protect and enhance her public image and intimidate and emotionally harm and silence them not to speak up about the Benghazi attack – could only diminish plaintiffs-appellants’ reputations and esteem.
“Here, [Clinton] committed defamation by implication when, as one example, she responded ‘no’ when asked if she told the parents of the fallen heroes their death was caused by a film. … While she did not expressly use the word ‘liar,’ defendant-appellee’s statement would lead the viewer to draw one conclusions – that she was accusing plaintiffs-appellants of lying.”
The brief states, “Her statements unequivocally portray plaintiffs as liars.”
The original lawsuit observed the FBI found Clinton, “at a minimum, was ‘extremely careless’ in handling confidential and classified government information and ‘there is evidence of potential violations of the statutes regarding the handling of classified information.’”
The case states that Clinton’s unsecure personal email setup permitted “foreign powers including, but not limited to Russia, Iran, China and North Korea” to obtain information about the Americans.
“Immediately after the attack, defendant Clinton, in an effort to save the re-election chances of President Barack Obama, and in turn, her own chances at the 2016 presidency, lied to plaintiffs and the public at large that the Benghazi attacks were caused by Islamic reaction over an anti-Muslim YouTube video … these lies were perpetrated despite the fact that she knew immediately that this video was actually not the cause of the attack – information that she shared with the prime minister of Egypt and her own daughter, Chelsea Clinton, but hid from plaintiffs and the public at large.
“Clinton even promised plaintiffs that the person responsible for the video would be arrested. … Woods recorded the conversation with defendant Clinton contemporaneously in his diary.”
The filing suggests the court to reverse the district court’s dismissal and evaluate the pleadings, make it possible for discovery and then a trial on the merits before a jury.
