State Dept. Says Hillary Clinton Is Not Celebrating in Dominican Republic as Reported

Earlier today we reported that although Hillary Clinton was too sick to speak with Congress this month about the Benghazi massacre she had traveled to the Punta Cana resort in the Dominican Republic to celebrate the New Year.  The story was first reported at Dominican Today:

Ex-president Bill Clinton and his wife Hillary Clinton are enjoying their year-end vacation in Punta Cana, in the eastern coast of the Dominican Republic.

According to press reports, the Clintons will celebrate New Year???s at the Puntacana Resort & Club and could also attend a fashion show scheduled for December 29, which will be held in honor of famous Dominican designer Oscar de la Renta.

Also expected to attend are American journalist Barbara Walters, Vogue editor Anna Wintour, Spanish actress Mar Flores and her husband Javier Merino, among other international jetsetters.

This afternoon the State Department wrote Human Events and told us Hillary and Bill Clinton did not travel to the Dominican Republic today as was reported. Philippe Reines at the State Department said the Clintons are not in the Dominican Republic. The Clintons are not going to the Dominican Republic. Phillippe then added, “We likely disagree on just about everything, but surely we can agree that posting a lie is far different than posting an opinion.” We are posting this as a correction to our earlier post.
