John Bolton: Hillary Clinton Came Up With ‘Diplomatic Illness’ To Avoid Benghazi Testimony

John Bolton, former U.N. ambassador under President George W. Bush, suggested Monday night that Secretary of State Hillary Clinton fabricated a “diplomatic illness” in order to dodge scheduled testimony this week on the Sept. 11 anniversary attack in Benghazi, Libya.

Speaking on Fox News, Bolton claimed “every foreign service officer in every foreign ministry in the world” is familiar with coming up with such “diplomatic illnesses” when they “don’t want to go to a meeting or a conference, or an event.”



“And this is a diplomatic illness to beat the band,” Bolton said of recent news that Clinton had fainted and suffered a concussion over the weekend after earlier battling a stomach virus that resulted in a rare cancellation of an overseas trip.


He went on to add that he hoped Clinton wasn’t going through anything “serious.”

Sen. John Kerry (D-Mass.), chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, responded to the report by insisting that Clinton not testify as planned on Thursday this week.


Despite Kerry’s decision to call forth Clinton’s deputies to testify in her place, Bolton said that he believed she’d have to testify at some point on the attack, which claimed the lives of four Americans, including U.S. Ambassador Christopher Stevens.

  1. I gotta say, that was the very, very FIRST thing that entered my mind when I heard the news of her ‘illness’ last week.

    That either makes me a hard-hearted, cynical SOB, …or a candidate for an appointment to the UN.
    Yeah,….probably the first one.
