Hillary Clinton was forwarded an article a month after the terrorist attack on Benghazi that killed U.S. ambassador Chris Stevens that quoted Stevens's father. In the October 14, 2012, Bloomberg article, Jan Stevens, the late ambassador's father, was quoted saying that it would be "abhorrent" to make his son's death a political issue in the presidential campaign.
According to the State Department's release of several emails sent to Clinton's private email address, the link to the article was forwarded on the same day to State Department employee Chris Hensman, who forwarded it to Clinton advisers Cheryl Mills and Philippe Reines. Mills forwarded that email to Clinton.
