This revelation comes after Huma Abedin’s deposition. Just more of Hillary’s lack of honor and character on display.
It took Hillary Clinton at least 48 days to speak with any of the government personnel who were evacuated from Benghazi, Libya after the deadly anti-American terror attacks there, according to sworn testimony from her longtime senior aide Huma Abedin.
Abedin testified in October of last year in a closed-door deposition that after checking in with a single injured agent from the State Department’s Bureau of Diplomatic Security, a man who would spend more than a year recovering at the Walter Reed National Military Medical Center, Clinton went the rest of 2012 without speaking to another survivor.
That view contradicts what Hillary Clinton would tell Congress six days later in an open hearing.
‘I talked to the survivors when they came back to the United States,’ Clinton said during a lengthy Capitol Hill grilling. ‘And one who was for many months in Walter Reed on the telephone.’
Abedin testified differently in an October 16, 2015 deposition before the Select Committee on Benghazi, saying Clinton spoke with just one agent through the end of 2012.
She also told investigators that it was she who reminded Clinton to check in on the hospitalized security agent nearly 7 weeks after the attack.
Presumptive Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump told DailyMail.com that questions about whether Clinton followed up with her underlings after they faced death in Libya indicate her shortcomings as a candidate.
‘Hillary Clinton started the Libyan war that put our Ambassador in danger, her State Department ignored repeated requests for security, then left them there to die,’ Trump said.
‘Next, she lied to the world about a video being the cause. Now we learn she even delayed meeting with survivors.’
She unleashed ISIS, failed our diplomatic personnel, and put the whole nation at risk through her corrupt email scheme,’ Trump continued. ‘Hillary is dangerous, incompetent, and reckless. She can never lead.’
The Islamist attacks on September 11, 2012 killed four Americans, including U.S. Ambassador to Libya Chris Stevens, a State Department information officer and two CIA operatives who were former Navy SEALs.
But 35 other Americans were rushed out of the Libyan port city, according to a Capitol Hill source with knowledge of Obama administration figures. Clinton wrote in her memoir ‘Hard Choices’ that five Diplomatic Security agents were among the injured.
She also named David Ubben, the man she called at Walter Reed.
