Perhaps in indirect response to the Kahn family attacks on Donald Trump, Pat Smith and Charles Woods, parents of Sean Smith and Tyrone Woods who were killed in the Benghazi terrorist attacks on September 11, 2012, have filed a lawsuit against Hillary Clinton alleging, among other things, that her “negligent and reckless” actions with regard to her private email server resulted in the “wrongful death” of their sons. The lawsuit, filed in the District of Columbia, also accuses Clinton of “defamation” and “intentional infliction of emotional distress” as they claim she has launched a “smear campaign” against the Plaintiffs in an effort to cover up the facts and save her Presidential campaign.
The suit alleges that Clinton’s use of a private email server is what allowed terrorist groups in Libya to obtain the whereabouts of Ambassador Christopher Stevens which ultimately led to the “wrongful death” of their sons:
-“This information was compromised from the second that it left Defendant Clinton’s private e-mail server and easily found its way to foreign powers including, but not limited to Russia, Iran, China, and North Korea. As a direct result of Defendant Clinton’s reckless handling of this classified, sensitive information, Islamic terrorists were able to obtain the whereabouts of Ambassador Christopher Stevens and thus the U.S. State Department and covert and other government operations in Benghazi, Libya and subsequently orchestrate, plan, and execute the now infamous September 11, 2012 attack.”
The suit also alleges that Clinton has gone a “defamatory smear campaign” to paint the Plaintiffs as liars and discredit their claims that Clinton blamed the attacks on a YouTube video in the aftermath of the Benghazi attacks. The suit goes on to highlight specific instances where Clinton denied that she originally attributed the deaths of the Americans in Benghazi on the YouTube Video.
