Rice ‘Does Not Recall’ 18 Times in Hearing on Benghazi Cover-Up

Rice ‘Does Not Recall’ 18 Times in Hearing on Benghazi Cover-Up

August 12, 2020

Tom Fitton writes at Breitbart News that in written testimony about the Benghazi attack, former National Security Advisor Susan Rice claimed 18 times in 13 questions that she “does not recall” critical information.

Rice wrote, for example, that she “does not recall” who gave her key Benghazi talking points she used on TV, “does not recall” being in any meetings regarding Benghazi in five days following the attack, and “does not recall” communicating with anyone in then-SecState Hillary Clinton’s office about Benghazi.

Fitton notes that Rice’s interrogatory responses come in his FOIA lawsuit that seeks records concerning “talking points or updates on the Benghazi attack.” “We uncovered ‘talking points’ created by the Obama White House and other documents showing that statements about the attack made on the eve of the 2012 elections by then-National Security Advisor Rice were false.”

Rice admitted in written responses under oath that she emailed with Hillary on Clinton’s non-government email account and that she received emails related to government business on her own personal email account. U.S. District Court Judge Royce Lamberth called the Clinton email system “one of the gravest modern offenses to government transparency.”
