Families of 2 U.S. Personnel Killed in Benghazi Sue Clinton

HeadlineAug 09, 2016

The parents of two Americans killed in the 2012 attack on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi, Libya, filed a wrongful death lawsuit in federal court Monday against Hillary Clinton. Patricia Smith and Charles Woods, the parents of Sean Smith and Tyrone Woods, are claiming Clinton’s use of a private email server while she was secretary of state contributed to the attacks. The lawsuit accuses Hillary Clinton of “extreme carelessness in handling confidential and classified information,” which the lawsuit alleges contributed to the conditions that led to her their sons’ deaths. They also accused Clinton of defaming them in public statements.
