Fox News has extensively covered the deadly 2012 attack on the American diplomatic mission in Benghazi, Libya, an event which some have blamed on the then Secretary of State.

The tweet also came just hours after a contentious interview between Clinton's former boss President Obama and Fox News' Bill O'Reilly, in which the two men argued about the Benghazi attack, among other subjects.

During the interview, Obama said Fox News was responsible for lingering questions about what happened in Benghazi, telling O'Reilly, "These kinds of things keep on surfacing because you and your TV station will promote them."
