The mother of Benghazi victim Sean Smith will be in the audience at Wednesday’s presidential debate – as a VIP of Donald Trump.
Pat Smith, whose son, a State Department IT consultant, was killed during the Sept. 11, 2012 terrorist attacks in Libya, said she would accept the Republican nominee’s invitation to the final debate between Trump and Hillary Clinton in Las Vegas.
“I want to look in Hillary’s eyes and have her lie to me again,” Smith told Yahoo News.
Speaking at the Republican National Convention in July, Smith specifically blamed Clinton for her son’s death.
“I blame Hillary Clinton personally for the death of my son,” she said at the political convention. “Personally.”
During the second debate – a town-hall-style face-off, Trump invited three women whom Bill Clinton sexually assaulted or harassed: Juanita Broaddrick, Kathleen Willey and Paula Jones. Trump also brought Kathy Shelton, a woman who was raped when she was 12. Clinton defended the man who raped her 40 years ago.
In a statement sent to Yahoo News about Smith’s attendance, retired Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn, a top Trump adviser, said that Smith’s presence at the debate might push Clinton to give the families of victims a “solid answer” as to why the U.S. government did not successfully rescue all of its personnel in Benghazi.
“Hillary said ‘What difference does it make’ — the difference was four lives were lost in Benghazi, and the families have still never had a solid answer from Hillary Clinton as to why we allowed this to happen. Hopefully Wednesday these families will get their answer,” Flynn said.
During a 2013 congressional hearing, Clinton said “What difference does it make” while discussing the back and forth over whether the attacks were coordinated.
During a Democratic primary debate in March, Clinton was asked about Smith’s accusation of lying and called it “absolutely wrong.” Clinton and her campaign have repeatedly defended her handling of the attack and dismissed a Republican-led congressional investigation into it as a “purely partisan exercise” that “found no wrongdoing” by Clinton.
