Judicial Watch: Clinton and aides suspiciously ‘offline’ – no emails during Benghazi cover-up

A Judicial Watch investigation revealed that top Hillary Clinton aides may have been using secret email accounts to correspond with her during the Sept. 11, 2012, Benghazi attacks.

Clinton’s aides, Philippe Reines and Cheryl Mills, were intent on shielding Clinton from scrutiny, Fox News’ Catherine Herridge told the host of “The Real Story with Gretchen Carlson” on Friday.

“These emails obtained through a federal lawsuit show that Philippe Reines, widely described as the former secretary of state’s principal gatekeeper, and Cheryl Mills, who has been at Clinton’s side for decades, were running interference during the 2012 attack,” Herridge said. “While receiving updates in real time, Mills told the State Department spokeswoman to stop answering reporter questions about the status of Ambassador Chris Stevens, who was missing and later found dead.”

The emails made repeated reference to a “Benghazi group,” which Herridge said a diplomatic source told her was code for the damage control task force headed by Mills.

“Cheryl Mills was instrumental in making sure the big lie was put out there,” Judicial Watch PresidentTom Fitton told Fox News. “What’s notable thus far is that we received no emails from or to Mrs. Clinton, and you have to wonder whether these aides went offline and were using these secret accounts to communicate with her about the Benghazi attack.”
