She Said It: Five Memorable Moments from Clinton’s Latest Interview

Michael Short - September 4, 2015

1.  Clinton Twice Refused to Apologize for Using Private Email, Secret Server

2.  “I am sorry that this has been confusing to people and has raised a lot of questions.”

After refusing to apologize twice, Clinton’s nonapology apology is to suggest that the situation is too complex for us to understand. The reality is, none of this would be an issue if Clinton had been transparent and up front from the start and had not set up a secret server. She has no one to blame but herself.

3.  “I take classified material very, very seriously. And we followed all the rules on classified material.”

Although it has been confirmed that Hillary Clinton both sent and received classified information on unsecured networks several times a month, Hillary repeated the claim that she did not send classified material on her secret email server.

Even worse, Hillary has continually tried to dismiss her mishandling of classified information as a laughing matter. A recent email released by the State Department also shows Clinton telling a staffer wary of sending classified information over her private network to “just send it.”

4.  “…I was not thinking a lot when I got in”

So Clinton takes classified material very seriously, but didn’t think the security and protocol of her primary means of communication was something she should think about when she became Secretary of State? Clinton cites the “convenience” of using her personal email, but wouldn’t it have been more convenient to comply with the setup and rules that were already clearly setup for the State Department’s government email system?

5.  “There are answers to all of these questions and I will continue to provide those answers.”

The facts don’t match the talking points. Just this week, the State Department bobbed and weaved through a series of straightforward questions about Hillary’s email practices.

And then there’s this…

Exhibit A

Exhibit B

What’s clear is Hillary Clinton regrets that she got caught and is paying a political price, not the fact her secret email server put our national security at risk. Hillary Clinton’s repeated distortions of her growing email scandal, which now involves an FBI investigation, and her refusal to apologize only reinforce why three-fifths of the country doesn’t trust her.
