Obama-Appointed Federal Judge Tosses Benghazi Families' Lawsuit Against Hillary Clinton

An Obama-appointed judge has tossed a lawsuit against Hillary Clinton filed by the families of the Benghazi victims. The families of Sean Smith and Tyrone Woods allege that the former first lady was guilty of negligence and intentional emotion harm in their wrongful death suit that was filed in August of 2016. In September of 2016, we found out that Clinton's aides straight up ignored the suit and refused to comply with the summons. In the end, U.S. District Court Judge Amy Berman Jackson, who was nominated by Obama in 2010, felt that Mrs. Clinton was not at fault concerning the allegations brought against her (via Washington Times):

Mrs. Clinton neither enabled the Benghazi attack by using her now-infamous private email server nor defamed its victims’ parents afterwards, U.S. District Court Judge Amy Berman Jackson ruled Friday in Washington, D.C., casting aside claims raised on behalf of parents of slain State Department information officer Sean Smith and late CIA operative Tyrone Woods.

The Smith and Woods families sued Mrs. Clinton last August in D.C. federal court alleging she caused their sons’ deaths by discussing sensitive State Dept. matters over an insecure, nongovernmental email system while secretary of state, supposedly providing terrorists with information used to plot the Sept. 11, 2012 ambush, according to the lawsuit.


“The Court finds that Secretary Clinton was acting in the scope of her employment when she transmitted the emails that are alleged to give rise to her liability,” Judge Jackson‘s 29-page opinion reads in part. “The untimely death of plaintiffs’ sons is tragic, and the Court does not mean to minimize the unspeakable loss that plaintiffs have suffered in any way. But when one applies the appropriate legal standards, it is clear that plaintiffs have not alleged sufficient facts to rebut the presumption that Secretary Clinton was acting in her official capacity when she used her private email server.”

In September 2012, Mr. Woods and Smith were killed in a terrorist attack against the U.S. compound in Benghazi, Libya. It became a controversial subject for the Obama administration since it undercut their narrative that al-Qaeda was on the run; the group who executed the attack—Ansar al-Sharia—is affiliated with the international terror group. Things became worse for the Obama White House when then-U.S. Ambassador to the U.N. Susan Rice did the full Ginsburg on September 16, 2012, going on every major Sunday morning talk show to label the attack as a spontaneous reaction to an anti-Muslim YouTube video. That was a lie. The attack was coordinated and planned in advance.
