Democrat strategist and former staffer for Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama Nomiki Konst said on The Blaze today that the families of the Benghazi victims are calling Hillary Clinton a liar because they are desperate for media attention. Konst has no real claim to know the truth of what happened in Benghazi other than that she worked in Libya after the attacks in Benghazi, but that doesn’t really stop her from trying to say that she knows the motives of the Benghazi victims’ families:
But when asked about the victims’ families, some of whom have been outspoken in their criticism of Clinton’s handling of the situation, Konst was very matter-of-fact. “Someone’s lying here. It’s either the families, or it’s Hillary,” Lahren charged.
“I don’t really know what that means. I mean, I’ve worked in Libya and I worked in Libya after the Benghazi attacks, so that really doesn’t mean anything,” Konst told Lahren. “I think a lot families come out and say things because they want whatever they want — they want press, they want attention.”
Look, I lived in Oklahoma both before and after the Timothy McVeigh bombing – in fact, I heard it when it happened – that doesn’t provide me with any special insight as to what happened there or any of the details of the occurrence. And that especially would not give me any insight into what the families of Timothy McVeigh’s victims might have thought or why.
This is really disgusting, the claim that the Benghazi victims families want attention, and Hillary Clinton somehow does not.
