Judicial Watch Receives Documents Proving Hillary Clinton Aides Knew About Benghazi Attack

According to a report from Western Journalism, Judicial Watch, a watchdog group dedicated to uncovering the truth about the dealings of our government – yes, our government- has uncovered documents that prove that former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s aides knew the consulate in Benghazi, Libya, was under attack, but failed to provide the support necessary.


Conservative watchdog group Judicial Watch obtained documents earlier this month proving that several top aides for then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton were aware the American consulate in Benghazi was under attack more than three years ago. This includes Clinton’s then-chief of staff and top confidant, Cheryl Mills.

Four Americans were killed in the Benghazi attack: Ambassador Chris Stevens, information officer Sean Smith, and former Navy SEALs Tyrone Woods and Glen Doherty.

Judicial Watch is in the midst of a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuit against the U.S. State Department, the scope of which entails “any and all records concerning, regarding, or related to notes, updates, or reports, created in response to the September 11, 2012 attack on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi, Libya.”

On September 11, 2012, Maria Sand, a special assistant to Clinton, forwarded an email to Mills entitled “U.S. Diplomatic Mission in Benghazi is Under Attack.” Jacob Sullivan (then-deputy chief of staff for policy), Joseph McManus (then Clinton’s executive assistant), and several other special assistants in Clinton’s office also received the email. It read as follows:

The Regional Security Officer reports the diplomatic mission is under attack. Tripoli reports approximately 20 armed people fired shots; explosions have been heard as well. Ambassador Stevens, who is currently in Benghazi, and four COM [Chief of Mission] personnel are in the compound safe haven. The 17th of February militia is providing security support.

Mills was also forwarded an email sent by Scott Bultrowicz, former director of the Diplomatic Security Service. Judicial Watch noted he was fired following the review of the attack. The email was sent the day of the attack at 4:38 PM.

The continued insistence by the left that inquiries concerning Benghazi are fabricated conservative witch hunts are continued betrayals of America. Americans deserve to know the truth about Benghazi and Hillary “What Difference Does it Make?” Clinton appears to be far lacking the candor we should all expect from our leaders.
