Hillary escapes default in Benghazi case

Obama appointee gives Clinton pass after she failed to respond

Hillary Clinton has escaped a default judgment that was entered in a case over her liability for the deaths of Americans in Benghazi when an Obama-appointed judge adopted claims that she wasn’t properly served.

That excuse, however, now is over as the case moves forward.

“Whether or not the defendant was served with process in accordance with the applicable state law, defendant is now on notice of this lawsuit, and counsel entered an appearance on her behalf of Sept. 15, 2016,” wrote Judge Amy Berman Jackson on Wednesday.

Jackson was appointed to the bench by Obama in 2011.

WND reported in August the claims were brought by the parents of two of the Americans killed by Islamic terrorists in Benghazi.

The case was filed in the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia by lawyer Larry Klayman of Freedom Watch USA on behalf of Patricia Smith, the mother of Sean Smith, and Charles Woods, the father of Tyrone Woods. The parents cite the FBI’s determination that Clinton’s handling of classified information through the use of a nonsecure, private email server was “extremely careless.”
