Patricia Smith, the mother of Sean Smith who was one of four Americans killed in the Sept. 11, 2012, attack on the U.S. diplomatic compound in Benghazi, Libya, blasted Hillary Clinton as "anti-mother," saying that the former secretary of state never told her exactly what happened that night, despite Clinton's initial promises.

"As far as I'm concerned, Hillary is anti-mother," Smith said on Fox News Tuesday morning. "She will not give me an answer to anything. As far as I know, it was the video that caused everything because no one has told me any different."

Clinton is scheduled to testify before the House Select Benghazi Committee on Oct. 22. The committee, headed by South Carolina Republican Rep. Trey Gowdy, is charged with finding out exactly what happened that night and what, if anything, could have been done to prevent it.

"She has got to let me know. I am the mother. She wasn't. Why does she know and I can't find out about my son?" Smith said, referring to the former secretary. "It's been three years. How long is it going to take before I find out something?"

The effort to obtain more of Clinton's emails, which could provide more answers, was stalled when it was revealed that Clinton had used a private email server while she was secretary of state and that she had deleted thousands of emails deemed "personal" and not "work-related."

Clinton has maintained that she did not violate any rules or laws by having her own email server, but critics have alleged that some deleted emails could have provided more Benghazi answers.

TheBlaze previously reported that the FBI has recovered the deleted emails and is going through them, a process that could take months.

Clinton is likely to be asked about her use of a private email server at the first Democratic primary debate in Las Vegas Tuesday night.
