Email pried out of State seems to show Clinton arranged to have Dem senator running committee feed her canned questions

Newly released emails--emails pried loose by a lawsuit--suggest a senior Hillary Clinton aide conspired with the Democrat senator who headed the senate committee investigating to feed Clinton pre-arranged questions in her first hearing on the terrorist attack in Benghazi that killed 4 Americans.

The email suggests the aide fed specific topics Clinton wanted to address to Democratic Sen. Robert Menendez, who at the time was acting chairman of the Foreign Relations Committee.

Clinton aide Philippe Reines wrote to Chelsea Clinton the morning of the hearing (Jan. 23, 2013)
We wired it that Menendez would provide an opportunity to address two topics we needed to debunk (her actions/whereabouts on 9/11, and these email from Chris Stevens about moving locations,)

Sure enough, in his first question Menendez asked for Clinton’s “insights on the decision-making process regarding the location of the Mission.”  Then he added, “What actions were you and your staff taking the night of September 11 and into September 12?"

The then-secretary of skate had ready answers to both. 

Ambassador Stevens was among four Americans killed in the attack.

The emails were obtained by the group Citizens United as part of a Freedom of Information Act request to the State Department for emails from Chelsea Clinton and Hillary Clinton's top aides.

Fox News asked the Clinton campaign and Menendez's office if they coordinated before the 2013 Senate Foreign Relations Committee hearing; what was meant by the term "wired;" and how the email exchange was consistent with the principle of independent congressional oversight. Both confirmed receipt of Fox’s questions.

The Clinton campaign said they would advise Fox if they had a comment.  Senator Menendez’s office said they would not be commenting.  Menendez has denied any wrongdoing.

Of course feeding questions to the head of the committee isn't illegal, but just illustrates how determined Hillary was and is to control the inquiry and the Narrative. 

But by all means, do elect her president.  After all, look at all the experience she has.
