Hillary Clinton has another lawsuit on her hands, this one possibly most ridiculously politicized one of all.
Two parents, each of separate U.S. citizens who died at Benghazi, have filed suit claiming wrongful death as well as defamation against former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.
The suit alleges, in part, that her use of a private e-mail server probably meant she corresponded about events in Libya, and therefore endangered and, indeed, precipitated the events that led to the deaths. This is preposterous, and no investigation has concluded any such thing. On top of that, one of the parents is that dreadful Patricia Smith, who spoke out against Hillary at the RNC.
If you want to file suit, don't become a political activist weeks before; it really weakens your moral standing.

The other, surreal, event that popped up today is the fact that Orlando mass shooter Omar Mateen's nutty father, who has already shown himself to be a publicity hog, turned up at Hillary's Kissimmee, Florida, rally. It's an embarrassment that someone closely affiliated with a terrorist and murderer was allowed in (and just goes to show how porous not only presidential rallies but, perhaps necessarily, our entire country is), and of course right-wingers are making hay of this on social media.
