WATCH LIVE: Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton testified at the House Select Committee on Benghazi on Thursday Oct. 22, 2015.

On September 11, 2001, the U.S. embassy and CIA annex in Benghazi, Libya, came under attack what was a preplanned, premeditated attack from Islamic terrorists. Then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton claimed a YouTube video caused the attack in Benghazi attack and Democrats sought to obfuscate the tragedy with unrelated Middle East protests.

However, previously obtained documents published by PPD showed the fact is that Mrs. Clinton was never “making a general reference to widespread protests across the Middle East” when blaming what the Pentagon called “a non-issue” YouTube video.

“You never said spontaneous or characterized the motives, in fact you were careful in your first statement to say we were assessing motive and method,” Jake Sullivan, a top Clinton aide wrote to Hillary on Sept. 24, 2012. “The way you treated the video in the Libya context was to say that some sought to *justify* the attack on that basis.”

Clinton and the entire Obama administration, just three days after the attack, told the victims’ families before she made those remarks that they would “get the man who made the inflammatory video.” Unfortunately, the very first batch of Clinton-related emails released by the State Department prove Sullivan and Cheryl Mills, two of Clintons closest aides, knew full-well that the terror attack had absolutely nothing to do with the video.

“This has been a difficult week for the State Department and for our country,” Clinton said at Andrews Air Force Base on Sept. 14, 2012. “We’ve seen the heavy assault on our post in Benghazi that took the lives of those brave men. We’ve seen rage and violence directed at American embassies over an awful internet video that we had nothing to do with. It is hard for the American people to make sense of that because. it is senseless, and it is totally unacceptable.”

Yet, when asked in May 2013 if President Obama, Secretary Clinton, and Susan Rice specifically told her the video was to blame for the attack that led to her son’s death, Sean Smith’s mother gave a crystal clear account of the statements made by these specific members of the Obama administration.

“Oh yes, they all told me about the reason that this happened was the video,” said Pat Smith. “Every one of them told me that. Yes, they actually did, and Susan Rice also. Nose to nose. I was with – they were hugging me!”

Without the House select committee on Benghazi, and despite the seven previous investigations Mrs. Clinton and Democrats repeatedly cite, the American people would never had learned of the private server unlawfully kept by the former secretary and now-frontrunner for the Democratic nomination. Without the House select committee on Benghazi, which the overwhelming majority of the American people believe should continue their work, the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) would not be conducting a criminal investigation into Clinton’s email practices and likely violations of the Federal Records Act and Espionage Act.

According to polls, upwards of 78% of American voters say they believe Hillary Clinton is lying about her role in the Benghazi terror attack and subsequent actions. If the House select committee on Benghazi can’t find the truth, then the FBI likely will.
