The parents of two of the four men who died in the attack in Benghazi, Libya on September 11, 2012, have filed suit against then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, saying she is responsible for their deaths and claiming defamation, Mediaite reports.

According to the suit filed in U.S. District Court in the District of Columbia on Monday,

Patricia Smith and Charles Woods allege that their sons Sean Smith and Tyrone Woods died in the attack on the U.S. diplomatic compound because of information obtained from "Defendant Clinton's 'extremely careless' handling of confidential and classified government information."

Clinton used an unsecured classified email server in her Chappaqua, New York home that security experts have said was likely hacked by foreign governments and that FBI director James Comey said in a press conference and congressional testimony last money contained classified markings at the time they were received.

According to the suit:

"It is highly probable, given Defendant Clinton’s history of reckless handling of classified information, that Defendant Clinton, as Secretary of State, sent and received information about Ambassador Christopher Stevens and thus the U.S. Department of State activities and covert operations that the deceased were a part of in Benghazi, Libya. This information was compromised from the second that it left Defendant Clinton’s private email server and easily found its way to foreign powers including, but not limited to Russia, Iran, China, and North Korea."

The defamation part of the lawsuit refers to Clinton denying accounts by Smith and Woods that she told them the attacks were caused by an anti-Muslim YouTube video produced in the United States.

"Defendant Clinton made false and defamatory statements negligently, recklessly, purposefully, and/or intentionally with actual malice," the suit says, "by stating that Plaintiffs were lying about Clinton having told them that the Benghazi Attack was caused by an anti-Muslim YouTube video."

Pat Smith and Charles Woods both have been vocal critics of Clinton, the Democratic nominee for president, and have been even more so as Republican nominee Donald Trump has faced fire for sparring with the parents of a Muslim American Army captain who died in the Iraq War.
