This Presidential Candidate Says Hillary Has ‘Blood On Her Hands’ Over Benghazi


Republican presidential candidate Carly Fiorina responded to news reports that the State Department has withheld a pair of crucial e-mails between Hillary Clinton and top aides, saying the former Secretary of State has “blood on her hands” over the deaths of the four Americans who were killed in the Benghazi terrorist attacks.

The House Select Committee on Benghazi has revealed that they were not given two key e-mails between Hillary and her top policy aides, which contained discussion of the talking points doled out by the administration weeks after the attack – talking points which would try to place blame for the attack on an obscure YouTube video.

Fiorina claimed that Clinton not only “has blood on her hands” regarding the Benghazi attack, but that she also “engaged in a gross dereliction of duty” and a “cover-up” regarding the situation.

Transcript (H/T: Daily Caller):

FIORINA:  Megyn, I now think we now have enough information to understand that Hillary Clinton as secretary of state has engaged in gross dereliction of duty. She has engaged in a cover-up, and she has blood on her hands.

KELLY: Blood on her hands?

FIORINA: Yes, ma’am.

KELLY: Is that too strong? Because they point to the fact that they say a house report, they say, exonerated her and they don’t believe there’s any smoking gun.

FIORINA: Well, listen to the litany I just went through. Really? I turned over the e-mails? No, I didn’t. I had nothing to do with the talking points? Yes, you did. It was a video and demonstration? It turns out it was a pre-planned terrorist attack. I didn’t tell anyone I had a private server. I didn’t tell anyone I had a private e-mail account. But when you found it out, I wiped it clean. 55,000 e-mails that we will never know about.

Will Hillary Clinton ever come forward with the truth about her private e-mails, or what role she played in shaping the administration’s talking points over Benghazi?

Until then, and maybe even beyond, Fiorina will be correct in saying that Hillary ‘has blood on her hands.’

Do you believe Hillary Clinton or anyone else in the administration has blood on their hands over Benghazi?
