Mike Huckabee: Hillary Chose Politics Over Americans' Lives

Newsmax TV's "The Steve Malzberg Show"

Friday, 23 Oct 2015 04:57 PM

Hillary Clinton escaped unscathed despite her blatant lies during an 11-hour grilling Thursday by the House Committee on Benghazi, Republican presidential candidate Mike Huckabee tells Newsmax TV.

"That's very troubling because four Americans are dead," Huckabee said Friday on "The Steve Malzberg Show."

"Hillary Clinton clearly lied about what happened. She said to her daughter and the Egyptian government that [the Benghazi attack] wasn't about [an anti-Islam] video, that it wasn't a spontaneous attack — it was a planned attack by an al-Qaida-like group.

"But what she said publicly and what she trotted out other people to say and what she even said to the families of these four dead Americans was that it was all about a spontaneous uprising from the video. So that's the first thing we learned."

Asked whether the two narratives about the Sept. 11th, 2012 attack in Libya — in which Ambassador Christopher Stevens and three other Americans died — were a political ploy to help President Barack Obama in his re-election bid, Huckabee said:

"You have to think that the only explanation for them coming up with this completely false narrative, that they all knew was false, was that it was a political calculation.

"And if that's the case, that may be one of the most damning pieces of all in this investigation — that they would make a political calculation and act politically rather than act on the best interest of Americans being besieged by enemy fire and ultimately murdered. That is just to me stunning if we find this out."

Huckabee added that he expects the Justice Department to eventually clear Clinton of any wrongdoing in the use of a private email account and server as secretary of state — a routine that could have jeopardized national security.

"I never thought this Justice Department would go after her and I still don't. I just don't think that's going to happen. There's been a long pattern that the Clintons have used. I've seen it my whole political life," he said.

"It follows something like this, when something comes up, they first deny it, then they deceive and say things that aren't true, we saw that affirmed this week.

"The next step, there's a distraction. Let's look the other way, let's check something else out.

"And then ultimately the strategy is, let's delay. Let's just drag this out until people are sick of it and don't want to talk about it anymore and it will all neatly go away and that's exactly what we've seen again."

Huckabee is the author of "God, Guns, Grits, and Gravy," published by St. Martin’s Press.
