BURLINGTON COUNTY, N.J. (CBSNewYork) — Sen. Bob Menendez, D-N.J., is under fire again as he is accused of playing a staged role duringHillary Clinton’s Benghazi hearings.

CBS2’s Christine Sloan reported conservative group Citizens United said new emails it just obtained suggest that question was staged.

The first question Menendez – the acting chairman of the Foreign Relations Committee then – asked Clinton was, “Can you give us your insights on the decision making process regarding the location of the mission and as part of that can you also in your response – and you touched upon it in your opening statement – what actions were you and your staff taking on the night of Sept. 11 and the 12?”

Citizens United claims an email between a senior aide to the Democratic presidential nominee and Chelsea Clinton reveal that the question was staged.

The email reads, “We wired it that Menendez would provide an opportunity to address two topics we needed to debunk (her actions/whereabouts on 9/11 and these emails from Chris Stevens about moving locations).
