From NBC News:
The parents of two Americans killed in the 2012 terrorist attacks on U.S. diplomatic facilities in Benghazi, Libya, filed a wrongful death lawsuit in federal court Monday against Hillary Clinton.
In the suit, Patricia Smith and Charles Woods, the parents of Sean Smith and Tyrone Woods, claim that Clinton’s use of a private e-mail server contributed to the attacks. They also accuse her of defaming them in public statements.
Smith was an information management officer and Woods was a security officer, both stationed in Benghazi.
“The Benghazi attack was directly and proximately caused, at a minimum by defendant Clinton’s ‘extreme carelessness’ in handling confidential and classified information,” such as the location of State Department employees in Libya, the lawsuit said.
It will be very interesting to see how this plays out. On one hand, it seems almost certain that gross negligence and unparalleled carelessness (not to mention a strongly protected narrative) led to the Benghazi attack. At the same time, I can’t imagine any judge having the boldness to come down harshly against Democratic presidential nominee, especially since she was never indicted by the FBI (even though the FBI admits she broke Federal law dozens of times with the use of her private server).
