When Hillary Clinton sat down with Fox News on Sunday, she was confronted with video of FBI director James Comey saying that she did send classified information over her private unsecured email server during her tenure as Secretary of State. The Democratic presidential nominee responded by saying that the emails were classified “retroactively.”
“That’s not what I heard director Comey say, and I thank you for giving me the opportunity in my view clarify,” Clinton replied, according to Three Percent Nation. “Director Comey said my answers were truthful, and what I’ve said is consistent with what I have told the American people, that there were decisions discussed and made to classify retroactively certain of the e-mails. I was communicating with over 300 people in my e-mailing. They certainly did not believe and no reason to believe that what they were sending was classified. In retrospect, different agencies come in and say, well, it should have been, but that’s not what was happening in real time.”
Clinton was then confronted with footage of Comey directly contradicting her.
“Well, Chris, I looked at the whole transcript of everything that was said, and what I believe is, number one, I made a mistake not using two different e-mail addresses,” she said. “I have said that and I repeat it again today. It is certainly not anything I would ever do again. I take classification seriously. I relied on and had every reason to rely on the judgments of the professionals with whom I worked. And so in retrospect, maybe some people are saying, well, among those 300 people they made the wrong call. There was no reason in my view to doubt the professionalism and the determination by the people who work every single day on behave of our country.”
Nice try, Hillary, but we see right through you! SHARE if you think she should be in jail!
