A federal judge has ruled that former Obama National Security Adviser Susan Rice and her deputy, Ben Rhodes, must answer written questions about the State Department’s response to the 2012 radical Islamic terrorist attack in Benghazi, Libya.
The September 2012 attack on the US embassy in Benghazi led to the deaths of four Americans, including US Ambassador Chris Stevens.
The inquiry is part of a lawsuit related to Hillary Clinton’s unauthorized use of a private, unsecured email server to conduct government business when she was Obama’s secretary of state from 2009 to 2013.
Hillary Lied and Blamed a Video for Terrorist Attack
Immediately after the Benghazi attack, then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton lied to the world by falsely claiming that it was caused by an anti-Muslim video. And Barack Obama played along.
The attack occurred on Sept. 11, 2012. Many believe the Obama administration promoted this false narrative in order to not hurt his chances of re-election two months later, in November 2012.
U.S. District Judge Royce C. Lamberth agreed to a request by watchdog Judicial Watch to make Susan Rice and Ben Rhodes answer written questions about the cover-up.
However, Lambert denied a request to make them sit for depositions, Fox News reported.
Judicial Watch has been doggedly pursuing whether Hillary Clinton’s State Department “acted in bad faith.”
Did Hillary Use Private Email to Hide Her Lies?
While the media looks for every tiny thing to criticize President Trump, they gave former Secretary of State Hillary and former president Obama a pass on many epic screw-ups for eight years.
Not only did Hillary lie when she blamed the 2012 Benghazi embassy attack on an anti-Islam video, but the media never criticized her for reportedly ignoring 600 email requests from Ambassador Chris Stevens begging for more security in the months before he was murdered.
“Rice’s talking points and State’s understanding of the attack play an unavoidably central role in this case,” Lamberth wrote.
“State’s role in the [talking] points’ content and development could shed light on Clinton’s motives for shielding her emails from [Freedom of Information Act] requesters or on State’s reluctance to search her emails.”
