Comey: "True" That Clinton Knew She Did Not Have Authority To Set Up Server

One Year Ago Today, Clinton Told CNN: "[E]verything I Did Was Permitted. There Was No Law. There Was No Regulation. There Was Nothing That Did Not Give Me The Full Authority To Decide How I Was Going To Communicate." CNN's BRIANNA KEILAR: "The issue of your email practices while you were Secretary of State, I think there's a lot of people who don't understand what your thought process was on that, so can you tell me the story of how you decided to delete 33,000 emails and how that deletion was executed?" CLINTON: "Well, let's start from the beginning, everything I did was permitted. There was no law. There was no regulation. There was nothing that did not give me the full authority to decide how I was going to communicate. Previous Secretaries of State have said they did the same thing and people across the government knew that I used one device, maybe because I'm not the most technically capable person and wanted to make it as easy as possible." KIELAR: "But you said they did the same thing, that they used a personal server, and while facing a subpoena, deleted emails from them." CLINTON: "A personal email, you know you are starting with so many assumptions that are, I've never had a subpoena, there is nothing, again, let's take a deep breath here, everything I did was permitted by law and regulation, I had one device, when I mailed anyone in the government, it would go into the government system. Now, I didn't have to turn over anything, I chose to turn over 55,000 pages, because I wanted to go above and beyond what was expected of me, because I knew the vast majority of I knew what was official was already in the State Department system. And now I think it's kinda fun, people get a real time behind the scenes look at you know, what I was emailing about and what I was communicating about." ("Situation Room," CNN, 7/7/15)

But Today, FBI Director James Comey Said That Clinton Knew She Did Not Have Authority To Have Secret Server In Her Basement. REP. KEN BUCK (R-CO): "What this statute does say is 'knowing removes such materials without authority.' Is it fair that she knew that she didn't have authority to have this server in her basement?" FBI DIRECTOR JAMES COMEY: "Yes, that's true." (House Oversight & Government Reform Committee, U.S. House Of Representatives, Hearing, 7/7/16)
