Parents of two of the four Americans killed in an attack on the U.S. diplomatic mission in Benghazi, Libya, in 2012, filed a lawsuit against the candidate for President from the Democratic party, Hillary Clinton, Fox News reports.
The suit was brought in the district court of the district of Columbia. Parents diplomatic service officer Sean Smith, and former commandos Tyrone woods believe that Clinton is responsible for the death of their children, and defamatory statements against them and causing emotional distress to the families of the victims.
The plaintiffs considered that the use of Clinton’s private email server was contributed to the deaths of Smith and woods, as the terrorists were able to obtain information about the whereabouts of Ambassador Christopher Stevens, and then organize, plan and implement the attack of 11 September 2012.
The parents of the dead also believe that Clinton defamed them in statements to the media. “During his campaign, Clinton irresponsibly or maliciously defamed plaintiffs, or directly calling them a liar, or hinting that they are cheating. Using these statements, Clinton has tried to improve its image,” reads the lawsuit. In addition, the plaintiffs believe that she caused them moral harm, and also tried at least four times to silence them, so they did not raise a question about the attack in Benghazi.
