Robert Menendez denies colluding with Hillary Clinton during the Benghazi hearing
Yesterday we learned in this story that newly released emails show the possibility that Hillary Clinton’s staff was colluding with acting Chairman of the Foreign Relations Committee, Robert Menendez, during the Benghazi hearing by “wiring” him questions he should ask the former Secretary of State. Here is more on that story:
Newly released emails suggest a senior Hillary Clinton aide stage-managed her first hearing on the Benghazi terrorist attack by feeding specific topics Clinton wanted to address to Democratic Sen. Robert Menendez, who at the time was acting chairman of the Foreign Relations Committee.
“We wired it that Menendez would provide an opportunity to address two topics we needed to debunk (her actions/whereabouts on 9/11, and these email from Chris Stevens about moving locations,)” Clinton media gatekeeper Philippe Reines wrote to Chelsea Clinton the morning of the Jan. 23, 2013 hearing.
It should be noted at this point that Hillary Clinton’s aide emailed this to Chelsea Clinton, who was using the alias Dianne Reynolds for privacy reasons. Why would this email have gone through a woman who has never held political office, and who was using an alias for privacy, rather than his boss other than to muddy the waters and make the truth harder to obtain? I guess it is the same reason Hillary Clinton emailed her daughter the truth about Benghazi being a terrorist attack before she blamed a YouTube video…
Robert Menendez, who is under investigation on corruption charges for an unrelated issue, was asked about this today and he denied colluding with the former Secretary of State, here is the video:
Move along, nothing to see here…it is just a coincidence that Hillary Clinton’s aide “wired” Robert Menendez the first question he asked.
Robert Menendez claimed it does not take a rocket scientist to figure out what his first question would or should be, but if that were so why did the Clinton camp feel the need to “wire” him this question in the first place? I guess that means Hillary Clinton is no rocket scientist…
