Two Benghazi Parents Sue Hillary Clinton for Wrongful Death, Defamation

  • The parents of two Americans killed in the 2012 Benghazi terrorist attacks on U.S. diplomatic facilities in  Libya filed a wrongful death lawsuit in federal court Monday, August 8th, against Hillary Clinton.
  • In the suit, Patricia Smith and Charles Woods, parents of the fallen heroes, Sean Smith and Tyrone Woods, claim that Clinton's improper use of a private e-mail server contributed to the attacks. They also accuse Clinton of defaming them and their fallen sons in public statements.
  • "The Benghazi attack was directly and proximately caused, at a minimum by defendant Clinton's 'extreme carelessness' in handling confidential and classified information," such as the location of State Department employees in Libya, the lawsuit said.
  • Their lawsuit called it "highly probable" that Clinton sent and received information about the activities of U.S. Ambassador Christopher Stevens.
  • The lawsuit claimed that this sensitive information "easily found its way to foreign powers" and was then handed to Islamic terrorists.
  • James Comey, who announced the findings of the FBI investigation, said it was "possible that hostile actors gained access" to it. 
  • The two parents also said when Clinton met with them after their children were killed, she said that a YouTube video was the cause of the attacks. 

Patricia Smith said at the Republican National Convention: "I blame Hillary Clinton personally for the death of my son."
  • The parents were represented by Washington, D.C., lawyer Larry Klayman.
