State Department Spokeswoman Says Hillary Clinton Did Not Fake Illness

State Department Spokeswoman Says Hillary Clinton Did Not Fake Illness

By Mike Krumboltz, Yahoo! News | The Lookout – 23 hrs ago

The State Department has rebutted another claim that Secretary of State Hillary Clinton faked her concussion while suffering from a stomach virus to avoid testifying Tuesday about the attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi, Libya, earlier this year.

The latest assertion came from former U.S. diplomat John Bolton, who, during the Dec. 17 edition of Fox News' "On the Record," insinuated that Clinton's "diplomatic illness"—in diplomatic circles, this is the feigning of an illness to avoid an engagement—kept her from testifying.

State Department spokeswoman Victoria Nuland said Bolton's suggestion was "completely untrue."

If she had an ounce of integrity she'd be embarrassed that they even needed to put this statement out there. If she had any integrity at all, no one would have questioned her excuse. Really, its disgusting what passes for "leadership" in our country today.

she was cracked in the head. That was what we were talking about, right?
Bolton is a turd, Clinton is a turd, most (if not all) the people investigating Benghazi are almost certainly turds...When we start arresting some turds for treason, I will care. Kabuki investigations no longer entertain me.

Love or fear? Choose again with every breath.

State Dept:

"Hillary Clinton did not fake illness"

"She totally faked it to avoid testifying about Benghazi and ruining her chance of running for POTUS in 2016"
