White House: Clinton’s 'Signature' on Benghazi Docs Doesn't Mean She Knew of Them

(CNSNews.com) – The White House dismissed the signature of former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton on documents ignoring security concerns in Benghazi, calling it “protocol” for government official “signatures” to appear on documents they did not sign.

“It is standard protocol that cables originating from the department in Washington go out under the authority of the current Secretary of State with their signature, i.e. their name, typed at the bottom,” White House Press Secretary Jay Carney said Wednesday, using his fingers for quote marks when he said “signature.” He continued. “This practice has been in place throughout this administration and across prior administrations, both Democratic and Republican.”

A report by five House committees released Tuesday found that Senior State Department officials, including Clinton, approved reductions in security at the facilities in Benghazi, Libya. The report cites an April 19, 2012, cable bearing Clinton's signature acknowledging a March 28, 2012, request from then-U.S. Ambassador to Libya Gene Cretz for more security, yet allowing further reductions.

Remember who you are dealing with when you deal with a Clinton,,,,,,slime. "I ran through the air port under sniper fire" 

Many people have forgotten the statement she made regarding her trip to Serbia... her embellishment of the facts to make her look good.  The maid stream media is nothing but a bunch of sycophants.

You forgot she said she was named after Sir E. Hillary but the problem is she was born about 6 years before he climbed Mt Everest                            AND THE PUBLIC WILL NOT CARE

No I didn't she is an opportunist and capable of spinning any number of lies if her marketing group tells her it is to her advantage.

This has happened repeatedly with the current administration. What the hell ever happened to " I am the Boss so therefore I have utimate responsibility for my DEPT and its people??" Even the President should have been aware of the multiple attack before the final finishing attack on HIS embassy in Lybia?

Plausable deniability my ARSE!

THIS B ITCH IS GUILTY . PERIOD.. HER and OBOGUS BOTH

hillary skates again!!! old sarge,'nam vet

The one and only reason this keeps happening with no recourse is the lack of spine in the RINO party!  There is NO ONE in Washington courageous enough to kick the scum out!!

Right on Rosalinda! And the rino's hands are just as dirty as the democrats.

i do wonder if Hilary is willing to take a bullet for Obama? She retired hoping to run in the 2016 elections, hoping to dodge the bullet herself by stepping aside. NOPE! she needs to be brought back and tried for her actions and hopefully Obama's connection will come forth.  Both Clinton s are major scum bags and need to be tried for their criminal actions clear back to the White Water crime.

YEP, "IF" her signature is BASICALLY "USELESS", what the HE** is she getting PAID for????!

Not only Clinton/State Dept., but the White House, too.  This is a perfect example of why the American public does NOT trust the federal government. One lies and the others swear to it, again.

 Dem Governor Threatens Trump: “Something’s Got To Happen To This Guy… He’s Sabotaging The World Order”

“If we don’t get rid of him, he’s going to undermine America and even the world.”

Another Democrat has called for ‘something to happen’ to President Trump in order to save the democratic process in America.

California Gov. Jerry Brown made the comments during an appearance on MSNBC, while discussing the death toll during hurricanes last year in Puerto Rico.

“Well, the problem is, we never had a president who was engaged in this kind of behavior,” Brown declared.

“I mean he’s not telling the truth. He keeps changing his mind. He’s sabotaging the world order in many respects.” the Governor claimed.

“So it’s unprecedented, it’s dangerous, and hopefully this election is going to send a strong message to the country,” he continued.

“The Democrats will win and then Trump — well, something’s got to happen to this guy, because if we don’t get rid of him, he’s going to undermine America and even the world.” Brown urged.

The tacit threat comes in the wake of Maxine Waters encouraging anti-Trumpers to “knock off” the President.
