Questions surrounding the 2012 terrorist attack in Benghazi should be dismissed by Democrats as a "conservative conspiracy theory," according to a file leaked from the party's House leader.

"While mistakes have been identified, no great scandal or wrongdoing has been uncovered," stated the memo purportedly taken from House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi's personal computer. It added that Democrats should use the deaths of the four Americans who died in Benghazi to deflect attention from those mistakes, and call for people to move on.

"Benghazi is a tragedy, not a scandal," the memo stated in one section devoted to talking points. "Reports ordered by the Republican-led Congress have repeatedly debunked conspiracy theories of criminal negligence or cover-ups. We must learn from what happened and do better, but those still calling for a witch hunt years later, despite the evidence, have clear self-serving political motivations."

The document noted the most potent Republican talking points revolve around whether Hillary Clinton knew of the potential threat before the attack. Key components include her knowledge of the "motivation ... and level of premeditation of the attack," whether U.S. intelligence agencies had prior knowledge of a "specific credible threat," and whether the State Department "intentionally misled the public" in the aftermath.

The State Department announced on Tuesday that it uncovered at least 30 emails related to Benghazi as part of an initial assessment of the trove Clinton deleted from her personal server, threatening to revive the issue in the final days of the presidential campaign. Clinton had said the emails she deleted were exclusively personal in nature.

The talking points, which date back to an unspecified time in 2015, were leaked by Guccifer 2.0, a self-proclaimed hacker who has been publishing documents taken from the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee.
