Hillary Clinton may have weathered House Republicans' Benghazi investigation, but her desire to put the issue to bed came across to some as remarkably tone-deaf.

"I'll leave it to others to characterize the report, but I think it's pretty clear it's time to move on," the former secretary of state said earlier this week in Denver, just after the release of the report on the deadly 2012 incident in Libya.

These remarks earned the ire of Dorothy Woods, widow of former Navy SEAL Tyrone Woods, who was one of the four Americans slain in the attack.

"Nobody in government can tell me how I feel, what I should feel about it," Woods said on CNN. "She has no right — nor does anyone in government have the right — to tell me it's time to move on. They're not in my shoes."

For Woods, and for many Republicans, the report "did not change my view of what happened, nor who to blame," she said. "I place a blame on this sentiment, on this attitude in the upper level of government that says, 'Hey, you know what, I'm just gonna lie about this, gloss over it, because I want to protect what I look like, and I'm thinking about the next job.'"

Kate Quigley, the sister of fellow ex-SEAL Glen Doherty, who died alongside Woods trying to protect the U.S. diplomatic compound in Benghazi, told Boston Herald Radio Thursday that Clinton has no place in the White House and that she would most likely support Donald Trump, the presumptive Republican nominee, in the upcoming election.

"I think that it's clear from the way that Hillary has demonstrated her character and her foreign policy that we need change,” Quigley said. "So Donald might not be perfect, but I don't believe Hillary should be leading this country.”

Clinton did receive support from the sister of Chris Stevens, the U.S. Ambassador to Libya who also died in the attack.

"I do not blame Hillary Clinton or Leon Panetta. They were balancing security efforts at embassies and missions around the world," Dr. Anne Stevens told The New Yorker, acting as spokeswoman for the family.

"I don't see any usefulness in continuing to criticize her. It is very unjust.”
