Jeb Bush Accuses Clinton of Lying About Benghazi

The deadly attacks on U.S. facilities in Benghazi, Libya, in 2012 continue to haunt Hillary Clinton as she runs for president.

On Saturday, Republican candidate Jeb Bush accused the former secretary of state of lying when she talked to family members of those killed in the incident, The Hill reported.

“This is the third anniversary of Hillary Clinton’s testimony when she said it doesn’t make a difference on Benghazi. Third anniversary,” Bush told voters at a town hall campaign event in New Hampshire. “When she had to testify under oath, she said that the reason why we have this threat, why Benghazi occurred, it was because of terrorism, even though she told the families something completely different, that she was going to go after the director of the video.”

The former Florida governor continued: “She lied to the families, and told the truth to her daughter and to the president of Egypt. Shameful. Shameful.”

According to Bush, Clinton’s performance as head of the State Department proved she is not fit for the presidency. “Benghazi; Iran; calling (Syrian President) Assad a reformer – he’s killed 250,000 innocent people; the Russian reset – that hasn’t worked out very well,” he said. “All of this is a sign of a secretary of state and a foreign policy that is reactive, rather than believing that the United States’ leadership in the world really matters. I don’t believe Hillary Clinton really understands that, and I do.”
