Hil-LIE-ry Clinton has again been exposed as a liar.
During her first interview for months with CNN, Tuesday, Clinton made the claim that at no point did she ever receive a subpoena from Select House Committee Chairman Trey Gowdy (R., S.C.), regarding the September 11th 2012 attack on the US consulate in Benghazi that resulted in the deaths of four Americans.
However, the very next day, Gowdy published the subpoena that he sent Clinton back in March.
Appearing on CNN with senior Washington correspondent Jeff Zeleny, Gowdy was resolute.
“But to state that you never received a subpoena, you did get one in March. Couldn’t be more plain, ‘The Honorable Hillary R. Clinton,” Gowdy said while producing the document that Clinton claimed never existed.
The subpoena demanded Clinton turn over all records and emails in her possession related to Benghazi.
Clinton claimed that the reason why she deleted more than 30,000 emails while under subpoena, was because “I’ve never had a subpoena.” – a BLATANT lie.
The new lie comes on the back of a barrage of untruths regarding Benghazi, including the assertion that she only ever used one email address and one device. Clinton has become caught up in a huge web of lies.
During her Tuesday interview, she also claimed regarding the missing emails that “I didn’t have to turn over anything.”
“I chose to turn over 55,000 pages because I wanted to go above and beyond what was expected of me because I knew the vast majority of everything that was official already was in the State Department system.” Clinton said.
Last month, however, a huge batch of new emails was unearthed, none of which had been submitted to the Benghazi committee. This means that Clinton lied about turning all her remaining emails over to the State Department, or that the State Department withheld relevant emails from the Benghazi committee.
Commenting on the turn of events this week, Senator Rand Paul, who grilled Clinton during the Congressional hearings, indicated that he firmly believes Clinton knowingly lied to Congress.
“Some of the emails coming out about Benghazi indicate that maybe she did know a lot more about this arms trade than she let on.” Paul said.
”I don’t think our public officials should be allowed to come before congressional committees and lie.” Paul urged.
During the same interview Tuesday, Clinton also dropped several other lies.
She claimed that she is being subjected to a “constant barrage of attacks that are largely fomented by and coming from the Right.“ However, it was The New York Times that broke the original story that Clinton had used a personal email account stored on a private server to conduct government business as secretary of state.
Clinton also claimed, ironically, that “people should and do trust me,” yet a May Quinnipiac poll found that 53 percent of American voters believe Clinton is “not honest and trustworthy,” while a AP-GFK poll in the same month found that almost half of Democrats and more than 6 in 10 Independents would not describe Clinton as “honest”.
Veteran journalist and Clinton biographer Carl Bernstein reiterated those sentiments on CNN, noting that Clinton has a “difficult relationship with the truth.”
“We have to look at what politicians do in terms of fudging,” said Bernstein, known for his exposure of the Watergate scandal. “It’s endemic in the profession. She’s become a specialist at it.”
“Why has she become a specialist?” he asked rhetorically. “It has to do partly with the peculiarities of the Clinton situation. It had partly to do with the history of Bill Clinton and women and she’s had to defend him. It’s been very difficult to do with the whole truth and nothing but the truth. She’s been in a difficult position.”
Poor Hil-LIE-ry, it’s all she knows.
