The State Department is having a hard time covering up Hillary Clinton’s email scandal. On ‘America’s Election HQ’ today, a group of reporters questioned State Department spokeswoman Elizabeth Trudeau about 44 newly-released emails and she had a hard time answering.
According to Fox News Insider, the emails were not in the original 30,000 handed over to the State Department, despite Clinton’s claims she turned over all work-related emails
The documents, produced as a result of a conservative watchdog group’s FOIA lawsuit, appear to challenge Clinton’s insistence that there is “no connection” between her family foundation and her work at the department.
Trudeau danced around the same question multiple times, before one exasperated reporter eventually asked: “Am I not speaking English?”
The reporters wanted to know whether the State Department had specifically looked into the allegations of “pay-to-play” connected to the Clinton Foundation.
Greta Van Susteren joined Shannon Bream to talk about the press conference, calling it “absolutely disgraceful” that Trudeau kept refusing to answer straightforward questions.
“This is her job. The State Department is supposed to be transparent and give us information. Why are we even paying for this stuff?” she asked.
Van Susteren said the State Department shouldn’t even bother to hold news conferences if they’re not going to provide information.
