Clinton Back In The Hot Seat, Says She “Short-Circuited”


Statements made by Hillary Clinton to Chris Wallace on Fox News Sunday have stirred up a controversy once again about her email scandal.

Clinton told Wallace, “Director Comey said that my answers were truthful and what I’ve said is consistent with what I’ve told the American people.”

Politifact rated her statement as “Pants on Fire,” and the Washington Post hit her with “Four Pinocchios.”

Clinton tried to fix it, by telling a group of black and Latino reporters and editors that her response may have been “short-circuited,” while still maintaining that the bottom line was that Director Comey said her answers were truthful.

Next Clinton claimed she “never sent or received anything that was marked classified.”    (What Secretary of State doesn’t send classified correspondence?)  By her own admission, she just didn’t mark it as classified. 

LA Times wrote that Clinton’s statements on Friday “could have marked the end” of a good week for Clinton’s campaign, and pointed out that the FBI had stated that 110 of the emails were classified, even though they were not marked, and that “participants who know or should know that the subject matter is classified are still obligated to protect it.”

Clinton told the group of journalists, “Every time I’ve done a job, people have counted on me and trusted me.”

LA Times wrote, “Clinton seemed to cast voters’ perceptions more as a product of the polarized political climate than as a reflection of wrongdoing on her part.”

The following video, where FBI Director James Comey dismantled Clinton’s statements one by one, just won’t go away.
