An executive at the Trump Organization and special counsel to Donald Trump posted a meme accusing Hillary Clinton of “murdering an ambassador” on Tuesday, shortly before the House Benghazi Committee released its report.

Michael Cohen tweeted news of a new NBC/WSJ poll with a meme depicting the former Secretary of State, saying, “This picture says it all!”

“I presided over $6 billion lost at the State Department, sold uranium to the Russians through my faux charity, illegally deleted public records, and murdered an ambassador,” the all-caps meme of Clinton reads. “ELECT ME!”

The photo also bears a watermark from the group Uncle Sam’s Misguided Children, a monicker that is slang for the Marines Corps, a group to “bring awareness of the lame stream media.” The group’s Facebook page is largely populated by pro-gun memes.

Cohen tweeted the photo shortly before Republicans on the House committee faulted the Obama administration in the report, but found Clinton never personally turned down requests for extra security at the U.S. diplomatic compound in Benghazi before the 2012 attacks that left four Americans, including ambassador Chris Stevens, dead.
