Hillary Clinton takes lack of trust issue seriously

08 August, 2016, 01:52 | Author: Brittany Bishop

But I know that this is something that she's learned from, and we're going to be real transparent, absolutely.

FBI Director James Comey has said Clinton was truthful to the agency when they investigated the matter, but has declined to say if he believes she was truthful with the public. Was Hillary Clinton truthful when she said none of her e-mails were marked classified? No.

As I have previously written, whether information contains classification markings is irrelevant, because Clinton signed a nondisclosure agreement with the State Department that said classified information was still classified regardless whether it contained specific markings.

"So that leaves the 100 out of 30,000 e-mails that Director Comey testified contained classified information but again, he acknowledged there were no markings on those 100 e-mails and so what we have here is pretty much what I have been saying throughout this whole year and that is that I never sent or received anything that was marked classified", Clinton said. "That's really the bottom line here", Clinton said at a press availability Friday. "I think that has been discussed by others who have said two out of those three were later explained by the State Department not to have been, in any way, confidential at the time that they were delivered", she said.

"I may have short-circuited and for that I will try to clarify", she said.

"But I think that the people of this country don't want someone who will short-circuit up here".

At least for now, her reluctance to hold a press conference hasn't hurt her in the polls: In the latest NBC News/Wall Street Journal national poll, Clinton held a 9 point lead over her Republican challenger Donald Trump.


"But Congressman Becerra, she didn't short-circuit, and we didn't talk past each other", Wallace said. "Rosa Parks opened up every seat on the bus", she said.

On concerns of Hillary's trustworthiness, Kaine said, "I'm not assuming that's going to be the case even a month from now".

Clinton acknowledged that she had misspoken in two recent media interviews when she claimed that FBI Director James Comey had characterized as "truthful" all of her public statements about her use of a private email server as secretary of state.

The FBI probe's conclusions contradicted a number of Clinton's earlier claims about her emails. Several legal and security experts, including some Democrats, expected the Federal Bureau of Investigation to recommend an indictment for Hillary, but with that having failed to materialize, the general feeling that pervaded the American media was that Clinton had somehow worked her way with assistance from the Justice Department - and AG Loretta Lynch in particular - thus evading punishment for "crimes" which may otherwise have sent ordinary citizens into prison. Comey replied, "That's not true", and added, "There was classified material emailed". And did she intentionally lie to Congress about that?

"I thought she had a prepared speech that I've heard several times", Brendon Benavides, executive producer for Good Morning San Antonio at KSAT News and a candidate for NAHJ president told CNBC.

CLINTON: I never sent or received anything that was marked classified. Looking at the rest, some 30,000, the Federal Bureau of Investigation found 110 that contained information classified at the time.
