After moderator Jorge Ramos brought up her email scandal and the possibility of an indictment, it looked as though Wednesday night’s Democratic debate couldn’t get any more contentious for Hillary Clinton. Oh, but it could, in spectacular fashion.
Despite boos from the audience, Univision hit Clinton with video of Patricia Smith, whose son Sean Smith was killed in Benghazi, calling Clinton a liar for blaming a video for the terrorist attack that killed Sean and three others.
For those who aren't watching: Crowd really, really, really doesn't like the Benghazi question for Clinton. #DemDebate

Clinton claimed but showed no sign of remorse, and went so far as to call Smith “absolutely wrong,” dodging by claiming that she and the State Department were working from whatever limited information they had available.
(An email obtained by Judicial Watch appears to show the State Department scrambling on the night of Sept. 11 to link the Benghazi attack to an Internet video, even revealing that the “White House is reaching out to U-Tube [sic] to advise.”)

Clinton asked about Pat Smith, mother of Sean Smith, saying she was lied to after Benghazi. "She's wrong. She's absolutely wrong," HRC says.
