Hillary’s handling of classified and top secret emails was merely “carelessness”.
Chris Wallace conducted a softball interview of Barack Obama on Fox News Sunday but one important takeaway from it was Hillary probably won’t be indicted. Hillary’s use of the homebrew server for top top secret emails was merely “carelessness,” and “not dangerous”, according to Barack Obama.
Obama claimed he couldn’t interfere in the Hillary investigation when Wallace asked him about it but he talked about it anyway.
Based on what he said, we are all supposed to believe he doesn’t talk with DoJ head Loretta Lynch or FBI chief Jim Comey about the issue and that there is not any chance this investigation has been politicized.
People will remember when he said there wasn’t a smidgeon of corruption at the IRS even though the IRS blatantly harassed and threatened conservatives who tried to obtain 401(c)’s. Obama gave that same assurance about the FBI and the DoJ during this interview Sunday.
If Barack Obama is saying he is certain she didn’t do anything wrong, he’s acting from knowledge of how the investigation will go. He defended Hillary and offered up some non sequiturs like Hillary wouldn’t do it deliberately and she was a great secretary of state.
Wallace didn’t mention that Lois Lerner was clearly harassing conservatives and the FBI declined to indict despite that. Wallace didn’t mention the clear case against the New Black Panthers who – on film – menaced white voters at a Pennsylvania polling place The DoJ declined to prosecute because the offenders were black.
Barack Obama did walk his comments back a bit compared to his previous comments on the case but he seems awfully certain she is innocent.
“Last October, you said that Hillary Clinton’s private email server did not jeopardize national secrets,” Wallace said Sunday.
Wallace then played the clip from the October interview in which the president said, “I can tell that this is not a situation in which America’s national security was endangered.”
Wallace continued: “Since then, we’ve learned than over 2,000 of her emails contained classified material, 22 of the emails had top secret information – can you still say flatly that she did not jeopardize America’s secrets?”
“I’ve got to be careful, because as you know, there’ve been investigations, there are hearings, Congress is looking at this and I haven’t been sorting through each and every aspect of this,” Obama said Sunday. “Here’s what I know: Hillary Clinton was an outstanding secretary of state. She would never intentionally put America in any kind of jeopardy.”
“There’s carelessness in terms of managing emails, that she has owned, and she recognizes,” Obama told Wallace.
When questioned about the transfer of top secret emails, he said, “What I also know, because I handle a lot of classified information, is that there are — there’s classified, and then there’s classified,” Obama said.
And there’s Top Top Secret too Barack.
Catherine Herridge of Fox News has reported that Jim Comey will interview Hillary and do so as early as next month. Expect a whitewash. She will be cleared so thoroughly that it will boost her street creds.
