After the attacks on the U.S. Embassy in Benghazi, after four Americans were slaughtered, Hillary Clinton looked the American public in the eye and claimed that a YouTube video was responsible. There were cracks in that narrative from the very beginning. But this morning, Gregory Hicks, Deputy Chief of Mission at the embassy, delivered a final, devastating blow.
Hicks testified that Clinton had called him at 2 a.m., while the attacks were underway.
Did he just say he talked to Hillary that night?

Hicks says he told Hilary they would need to evacuate, to which she agreed. Still no mention of any offensive video #Benghazi

Mr. Hicks:About 2 AM Hillary called me and asked me what was going on and I briefed here on developments.
— Hugh Hewitt (@hughhewitt) May 8, 2013
That’s right. Clinton knew what was going on. She knew.

@uniteright Hicks deserves an award. His honest, professional testimony is riveting. Nice to hear the truth! Hillary knew at 2AM that night!

It’s also worth noting that Hicks said Ansar al-Sharia had claimed responsibility for the attacks on Twitter:
Hicks notes several times that they had monitored Twitter feeds sharing info about Ansar al-Sharia control of hospital. #Benghazi

Twitter had terrorists claiming responsibility for #Benghazi. If Obama used Twitter for news & not posting pics of himself, he’d have known.

Hicks testimony confirms: Attackers were clearly al Sharia terrorists, not protestors (as Obama/Hillary claimed). NO help sent. #Benghazi

And, after all that, she, Susan Rice, and others continued to push a bogus narrative.
Hillary Clinton personally spoke to the guy on the ground (Hicks) and still tried to blame a video?? MY GOD. #Benghazi
— RB (@RBPundit) May 8, 2013
How did Hillary come up with blaming it on a video despite knowing EVERY SINGLE DETAIL from Hicks? #Benghazi

Nearly 90 mins of testimony, not 1 mention of a demonstration. Hilary spoke to Hicks at 2am. Admin pushes video. Perjury charges? #benghazi

So Hicks spoke DIRECTLY to Sec of State Hillary Clinton. She knew it was an attack. She knew the desperation. She lied. #Benghazi

While watching Hicks’ testimony, remember Hillary Clinton told a bullshit story about YouTube videos to families of the dead.

Hillary Clinton stood in front of the flag draped caskets of dead Americans, lied and blamed a YouTube video. No shame. #benghazi

And now we know why Obama and Hillary wanted to keep hicks under wraps.

Yep. But the truth will not say buried. Not anymore.
