“I don’t think she has a soul,” is what Kris “Tanto” Paronto, survivor of the 2012 Benghazi attack says of Hillary Clinton…
Tanto isn’t backing off of his comments toward the Democrat front-runner eithher.
At Bridgeport’s annual Lincoln Day fundraising dinner in Connecticut, he told the audience that he would work day and night to help Republicans shine a light on what exactly went down on Sept. 11, 2012.
He said Clinton failed as secretary of state to send in adequate reinforcements when the U.S. mission in Libya was under terrorist attack.
Part of the security team that tried to defend the compound, Paronto headlined the annual Lincoln Day fundraising dinner of Bridgeport Republicans, who make up less than 10 percent of the city’s electorate.
Paronto stopped short of endorsing the GOP’s presumptive presidential nominee, Donald Trump, but said he will work with Republicans to shine a light on what happened in the confusion of the attack that killed U.S. ambassador to Libya J. Christopher Stevens on Sept. 11, 2012.
“I don’t think she has a soul,” Paronto said of Clinton during an interview with Hearst Connecticut Media. “I hope it haunts her. I don’t think it will.”
A spokesman for Clinton, who campaigned in Bridgeport ahead of her primary victory last month in Connecticut, declined to comment, but really – what can you say?
“You have a State Department that is giving stand-down orders when our embassy is under attack and our ambassador is killed,” said John Slater, the dinner’s organizer and Bridgeport’s former GOP chairman.
Paronto said he has no doubt that there is a nexus between the Benghazi attack and the email scandal that has dogged Clinton, who has been criticized for using a personal server to send and receive classified material when she was secretary of state.
He repeated accusations that Clinton misled the victims’ families over what incited the attack.
“She lied to the family members, period,” Paronto said. “People are believing her over the family members of teammates that I lost.”
