In October 2015 Hillary Clinton testified before Congress. Hillary told the Benghazi committee she checked in on the government personnel who were injured during the terrorist attacks in Benghazi. Hillary told the committee, “I talked to the survivors when they came back to the United States.”
Now we know that this was another Hillary lie.
It took Hillary at least 48 days to speak with government personnel who were evacuated from Benghazi and she only spoke with one agent. Hillary’s aide Huma Abedin told Congress this last year that Hillary only contacted one survivor out of the 35 Americans who survived the attacks.

The Daily Mail reported:
It took Hillary Clinton at least 48 days to speak with any of the government personnel who were evacuated from Benghazi, Libya after the deadly anti-American terror attacks there, according to sworn testimony from her longtime senior aide Huma Abedin.
Abedin testified in October of last year in a closed-door deposition that after checking in with a single injured agent from the State Department’s Bureau of Diplomatic Security, a man who would spend more than a year recovering at the Walter Reed National Military Medical Center, Clinton went the rest of 2012 without speaking to another survivor.
That view contradicts what Hillary Clinton would tell Congress six days later in an open hearing.
‘I talked to the survivors when they came back to the United States,’ Clinton said during a lengthy Capitol Hill grilling. ‘And one who was for many months in Walter Reed on the telephone.’
Abedin testified differently in an October 16, 2015 deposition before the Select Committee on Benghazi, saying Clinton spoke with just one agent through the end of 2012.
She also told investigators that it was she who reminded Clinton to check in on the hospitalized security agent nearly 7 weeks after the attack.
