“It is like a drip, drip, drip”.
Clinton is likely to be questioned about Abedin’s job arrangement and her previous claims on the issue during an interview Sunday morning for NBC’s “Meet The Press” and a new weekday edition of the program to be carried by MSNBC.
For months, Republicans have raised questions about thousands of e-mails sent and received by Clinton from a private account while at the State Department that were then deleted from her private server. “During the ’90s, I was subjected to the same kind of barrage”, she said.
Bill Clinton said Friday he believes Republicans are exaggerating scandals against his wife, using the scrutiny over her email use while at the State Department to tear her down.
During the interview, Clinton again called her use of a private server “a mistake”.
She did not hand over another 30,000 emails from the period that she deemed personal and said she chose “not to keep”.
“I’m not the best pundit anymore, I don’t have a good feel for this, all I know is what I’ve heard from the country“.
The Department also points out that these newly discovered Benghazi-related emails represent only a handful of 925 new emails it is turning over on Friday. There are so many ways to spend money still left and they want to talk about her lies?
“Hillary Clinton can’t seem to kick her decades-long habit of taking money from sketchy campaign contributors”, RNC spokesman Michael Short said.
HILLARY CLINTON: Well, everything we had access to was certainly out there and the reason we know about the email chain with General Petraeus is because it was on a government server. “I didn’t want to be looking over their shoulder”.
“If indeed this is a sign the stonewalling and political protection effort that was previously being run by the (State) Department is diminishing, the committee welcomes it”, he said. After three years of stonewalling, diversion, and failure to comply with requests by our committee, I am hopeful that this new production will finally give us the answers we need about the surrounding events that led to the tragic death of four Americans in Benghazi. After all, it’s unlikely there’s anything to hide from her first few weeks in office, and certainly not the Petraeus emails.
Irony of ironies: Those decisions, neither adequately explained, unwittingly have deprived Clinton of the very privacy she evidently sought.
“They found gaps in their own record keeping”, Clinton said Sunday.
“During the 90s, there were a bunch of [conspiracy theories], all of them turned out to be not true”, Clinton said.
He also pointed blame at the media, which the former president suggested has a knack for picking a candidate to target.
