Clinton Defends Ignorance On Classification, Efforts To Wipe Email

- September 5, 2016

With A Straight Face, Clinton Still Claims She Took The Handling Of Classified Material Seriously

Despite The FBI's Findings That Clinton Couldn't Remember Classification Briefings At State, She Said She Takes The Handling Of Classified Material Very Seriously. NBC'S ANDREA MITCHELL: "Madam Secretary, the FBI report cited several instances where you could not recall several facts about the classification systems about how you were trained when you went in, about how what you did when you left, does that to critics, indicate a casual attitude towards classifications and toward the way secrets were kept and reflected when you were Secretary of State?" CLINTON: "No, not at all, Andrea. I went into the State Department understanding classification. I had been on the Senate Armed Services committee for years before I was Secretary of State. I take classification seriously. The fact, that I couldn't remember certain meetings, whether or not they had occurred, but that doesn't in any way affect the commitment that I had and still have to the treatment of classified material."

When Directly Asked, Clinton Claimed Total Ignorance About Her Aides’ Use Of BleachBit To Wipe Her Email After The Use Of Her Server Became Public. REPORTER: "And to follow up on Andrea's question, your aides used a method called BleachBit to get rid of your emails, 23 days after the New York Times reported that you had a private email server, why did they do that, and what does that tell us about your emails server?" CLINTON: "I don't know anything about that. That was not something that I was aware of, and I think that the facts point out that there was no connection. It wasn't something that, as far as I understand, was related." (Fox News, "Special Report With Brett Baier," 9/5/16)
