May 31, 2016—Judge Andrew Napolitano, senior judicial analyst for Fox News, notes the ever-changing story from the Hillary Clinton presidential campaign with regard to the former secretary of state’s private server, which insecurely housed all of her government emails, including thousands of state secrets.
“First, they said it was allowed. ‘It was allowed.’ The Inspector General took care of that,” Judge Napolitano noted. “Then they said, it’s just a security check. The director of the FBI said, we don’t do these security checks, we investigate crimes.”
“Now they’re saying, well, OK, we did everything they said we did, but Colin Powell did the same.”
The difference with former Secretary Powell, Judge Napolitano clarifies, is that Powell used his Gmail account only a few dozen times to reply to aides, in an effort to move the State Department towards the 21st century. In contrast, he never had a private server, and never compromised anything confidential, secret, or top secret.
“What makes it worse, as always happens in these cases, is the lying, the lying, the lying. Now she’s dispatching these members of Congress to lie for her.”
