Remember immediately after the Benghazi attacks in 2012 and Hillary Clinton made sure to blame the attacks on a seemingly unrelated video about Islam? Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH) certainly did not forget on Thursday as he publically grilled Hillary Clinton during the Benghazi hearings.
“Your experts knew the truth, your spokesperson knew the truth, Greg Hicks knew the truth,” Jordan said. “But what troubles me more is I think you knew the truth.”
What seems to be the most damning part of this back and forth with Jordan and Clinton was the last email Jordan brought up, dated only one day after the attack, that has her in print saying to the Prime Minister of Egypt “We know that the attack in Libya had nothing to do with the film. It was a planned attack – not a protest.” This single email stands in contradiction with every action she publicly made in the days following the attack.
From the emails that were presented during this hearing, the evidence suggests that Hillary Clinton knowingly mislead the American people about the attack in Benghazi, Libya on September 11, 2012.
