Sunday on ABC’s “This Week,” while defending Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump former mayor of New York City Rudy Giuliani said Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton’s actions “don’t get the same attention that Trump’s do,” and he alluded to what he described as lying to a Gold Star mother.
Giuliani said, “I think her comments, Hillary’s comments, just don’t get the same attention that Trump’s do. For example, she lied to a gold star mother. She lied to Patricia Smith, the mother of Sean Smith who was killed at Benghazi, I believe, because of her incompetence. Her incompetence in failing to secure that mission. She lied to her on September 14, 2012, right at the coffin. She said, it was due to a video. So,I think that’s far more serious or at least it should get as much attention as all the attention that was paid to the comments that were made about the Khan family.”
He continued, “I think you’ll see him hit Hillary very hard. She short-circuited? That was a heck of a comment. She didn’t short-circuit. She lied. When she said that the FBI found she hadn’t lied. You read Comey’s report, he found she lied in about different eight places. Maybe short-circuit is her euphemism for lying. Did she short-circuit when she didn’t protect the compound when she got 20 requests for more help? Did she short circuit during the Benghazi situation when, if we had gotten people there, we might have been able to save Sean Smith and the other CIA gentleman’s life”
