State Department Releases Clinton Emails Related to Benghazi Attacks

The government on Friday made public nearly 300 emails concerning the 2012 Benghazi attacks that were on the private server Hillary Clinton used while she was secretary of state.

The emails "do not change in any way anyone’s understanding about the tragic events of that evening," according to White House press secretary Josh Earnest.

Some of the messages contain information that was later classified, The Associated Press reported. Clinton’s critics were quick to point out that the private server was not secure.

Other newly released emails include messages from Sidney Blumenthal, the former Clinton aide who suggested immediately following the attacks that the assailants were upset about an anti-Muslim video. The following day, he told Clinton the deadly raid was an act of terrorism.

Rep. Elijah Cummings of Maryland, the ranking Democrat on the Benghazi committee, said that with the release of the emails “the American people can … see for themselves that they contain no evidence to back up claims that Secretary Clinton ordered a stand-down, approved an illicit weapons program or any other wild allegation Republicans have made for years.”

He added: “The Select Committee should … stop wasting taxpayer money dragging out this political charade to harm Secretary Clinton’s bid for president.”
