During a campaign stop in Indiana on Saturday, a very theatrical Bill Clinton described the controversy surrounding Hillary’s emails as a “game” contrived by her political opponents.
“So, everybody is ‘all breathless about this,'” Bill Clinton said, throwing his arms up. “Look, this is a game.”
Bill must suffer the same memory loss that Hillary does. He did not mention that she lied about having top secret emails on her personal unsecured server, or that she signed a “Classified Information Nondisclosure Agreement” – or Standard Form 312 – on Jan. 22, 2009, a day after taking over as secretary of state, which specifically addresses sending or receiving classified information.
Fox News reported that the FBI and Republican-led congressional committees are examining emails Hillary Clinton sent while serving as secretary of state. The State Department retroactively identified more than 2,000 emails as “classified,” including 22 deemed “Top Secret.”
Bill Clinton said his wife has been compliant with requests to turn over the emails, saying “nobody had ever done that before.”
According to LawNewz:
What President Clinton neglected to mention was no other secretary of state has had their own private e-mail server with which to conduct State business. He also failed to mention she deleted over 30,000 emails that she unilaterally determined were “personal.”
The Daily Caller also noted that an analogy made by Clinton about changing speed limits doesn’t hold up, because she underwent training and signed an agreement to handle all emails as classified.
