7 Hillary Clinton quotes on the Internet that are complete fakes

Politifact

"Maybe Mr. Stevens should have contacted me if he wanted to live, if he wanted security. He should have thought about that." -- Hillary Clinton, Benghazi hearings, October 2015


Clinton addressed this issue in her Benghazi testimony, but never spoke these words.

Clinton did not say anything so snarky about the late U.S. Ambassador to Libya, Chris Stevens, during her testimony before the House Benghazi committee in October 2015. Stevens was one of four Americans to die in the terrorist attack on a U.S. complex in Benghazi, Libya, in September 2012. Critics have charged that Clinton bears responsibility for their deaths.

The closest statement we could find in Clinton’s actual testimony was this one:

"Well, it's the same answer I've been giving all day. Chris Stevens had an opportunity to reach me directly any time he thought there was something of importance. The people with whom he worked -- the people who were around him and with him -- they very well understood the dangers that they were confronting, and they did the best they could under the circumstances and many of the security requests, as I just detailed, were agreed to. Others weren't."

2. Maybe he had a phone number

She said he could reach her directly. She did not indicate by what means.
