Fox News doesn’t take it easy on Hillary Clinton. On Sunday, Fox News reporter Chris Wallace bombarded Clinton with Benghazi lies during an interview, only to have her blow the conspiracy to pieces as she responded to his questions.
Earlier this morning, Clinton had a 24-minute interview with Wallace where she discussed many sensitive topics. One of the first questions Wallace asked was about Russia and Vladimir Putin’s motives for hacking DNC emails.
‘Do you believe that Russia is behind the hacking and releasing of DNC emails? And do you think Vladimir Putin wants to defeat you or see you defeated and Trump elected for president?’
Hillary Clinton responded:
‘Well, we know Russian intelligence services, which are part of the Russian government and is under the firm control of Vladimir Putin, hacked into the DNC, and we know that they’ve arranged for a lot of those emails to be released, and we know that Donald Trump has shown a very troubling willingness to back up Putin and to support Putin, whether it’s saying NATO wouldn’t come to the rescue of our allies if they were invaded… His praise for Putin, which I think is quiet remarkable.’
When the questions about Benghazi arose, Clinton gave eloquent responses and explained what exactly happened within the Benghazi emails. A transcript of the conversation between her and Wallace can be read below, courtesy of Fox News Sunday:
WALLACE: One reason that people question your account, and this gets to the important question of trust, is because that day at Andrews, you never talked about terrorism. You talked about the video.
(BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)
CLINTON: We’ve seen the heavy assault on our post in Benghazi that took the lives of those brave men. We’ve seen rage and violence directed at American embassies over an awful internet video that we had nothing to do with.
(END VIDEO CLIP)
CLINTON: No, that’s not — that’s not fair. If you go back and read everything that I said that day, I quoted people who talked about it being terrorism. I had already said it was terrorism. There was no doubt it was terrorism.
I think there’s been a confusion in the minds of some and exploiting that confusion for the advantage of others —
WALLACE: But I have a quote here that said —
CLINTON: But look at everything I said, because this goes back on all the investigations. There were riots, there were protests, there were efforts to breach our embassies.
WALLACE: Yes, but not in Benghazi. That wasn’t what that is about.
CLINTON: No, but I’m just telling you, we were looking at the whole world. The whole world was aflame.
Fox’s biggest lie about Benghazi has always been to blame a video for the attacks. However, Clinton’s emails and statements reveal that she has been talking about two separate instances. In the days following the attacks, Clinton never blamed the video. At the same time, her emails were calling the attacks terrorism.
Hillary Clinton went on Fox News and exposed the Benghazi conspiracy theory for the misconception it is. Nobody is perfect, not even Hillary Clinton, but thanks to the interview she gave with Wallace, she was finally able to straighten things out.
