CNN anchor Brooke Baldwin began a discussion on Hillary Clinton’s private email scandal on Friday with Boris Epshteyn, a Donald Trump surrogate, and Evan Perez. Epshteyn made a bold charge against Clinton and her actions as the email scandal unfolded. Epshteyn’s claim was that Clinton’s staff destroyed Blackberries with hammers while at the State Department:
“17,500 emails that she lied about turning over. The server wipe. Within weeks of there being a report that she had a private server, it was wiped. She thought that ‘C,’ which stands for classified, stood for ‘cookie’ or something. She thought that drone strikes are not classified. She said that the reason she used a private server was for convenience, that she only had one device, she used 13 Blackberries and five iPads.”
Ending with a statement regarding Clinton being “absolutely disqualified from becoming president,” Epshteyn drops the bombshell remark about the destruction of Blackberries using hammers.
In disbelief, Baldwin had to call for a quick “fact check” to confirm the accuracy of the claim. “Hang on, hang on, hang on,” Baldwin interjected. “Evan Perez, hammers? Fact check that for me please on the fly.”
Of course, probably expecting a different answer, Baldwin’s facial reaction was priceless when Perez confirmed the fact: “Yes, they did, Brooke.”
