Emails Suggest Clinton Team Manipulated 2013 Benghazi Hearing Questions
Newly-released emails are raising questions about whether Hillary Clinton's aides sought to stage-manage the questions she would face at a 2013 Senate hearing on the Benghazi attack.
Fox News chief intelligence correspondent Catherine Herridge reported the latest details this afternoon after reviewing emails released as part of a FOIA request by Citizens United.
In one email, Clinton's former media gatekeeper Philippe Reines wrote to Chelsea Clinton - who used the pseudonym Diane Reynolds - on the morning of the Jan. 23, 2013 hearing, mentioning Sen. Bob Menendez (D-NJ)
The email reads in part: "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,)"
Herridge noted that the first question at the hearing from Senator Menendez covered both topics that were in the email.
Fox News asked the Clinton campaign as well as Menendez's office if they coordinated before the 2013 Senate Foreign Relations Committee hearing; what was meant by the term "wired;" and how the email exchange was consistent with the principle of independent congressional oversight. There was no immediate response from either.
