WASHINGTON – A federal judge threw out a lawsuit against Hillary Clinton by the parents of the two Americans killed at the U.S. diplomatic compound in Benghazi, Libya, the statement of the former minister of foreign affairs, not gossiping about them in challenging the allegations that she had lied.
The lawsuit also alleged the former Democratic presidential candidate is the use of a private e-mail server is the cause of the death of their sons, Sean Smith and Tyrone Woods, because the exposed terrorists to sensitive information. They claimed Clinton lied when she allegedly told them it was a YouTube video that prompted the consulate attacks.
“The untimely death of plaintiffs’ sons, is tragic, and the Court does not mean to minimize the unspeakable damage that plaintiffs have suffered in any way,” U. S. District Judge Amy Berman Jackson in Washington, wrote in a 29-page opinion released Friday. But Berman said the legal standards required the case to be dismissed.
Berman ruled the parents do not sufficiently challenge that Clinton was not acting in her official capacity if they used the own server, and that the families do not forward correct claims that Clinton defamed them or put them in a false light.
One of the parents, Patricia Smith, gave an emotional speech at the 2016 Republican National Convention at Clinton. Her son, and the Forests were killed in the September 2012 attack, along with CIA agent Glen Doherty and US ambassador in Libya, Christopher Stevens.
