Hillary Clinton’s Lips Are Moving… She Must Be Lying

“Hillary Clinton’s habitual lying about the use of her secret server to send and receive classified, top secret information shows her blatant disregard for national security and a continued pattern of bad judgment. Clinton knows the actions she has taken are disqualifying for someone wishing to become Commander-in-Chief, and that is why today’s painful, pretzel-like response to a simple question about her illegal server was obvious to everyone watching.” – Jason Miller, Senior Communications Advisor

SHOT – Today Clinton Said She Never Lied About Her Private Email Server:

Clinton Spun Her Recent Email Lies, Saying She “Short Circuited” Her Argument, But That Her Original Claims Of Honesty To The Public Throughout The Scandal Are Still True.NBC’S KRISTEN WELKER:“Madam Secretary,your poll numbers went way up this week, and yet the e-mail controversy was still in headlines.So, I want to give you the opportunity to respond.This week you told two separate news organizations that FBI Director James Comey said quote ‘my answers were truthful, and that what I said was consistent with what I have told the American people,’that assertion, as you know,has been debunked by multiple news organizations, which point out that Director Comey did say there was no indication you lied to the FBI,but he didn’t weigh in on whether or not you were truthful to the American people.So my question for you is are you mischaracterizing Director Comey's testimony, and is this not undercutting your efforts to rebuild trust with the American people?”CLINTON:“Kristen, I appreciate your asking that, because I was pointing out in both of those instances that Director Comey had said that my answers in my FBI interview were truthful, that’s really the bottom line here.And I have said during the interview and in many other occasions over the past month that what i told the FBI, which he said was truthful, is consistent with what I have said publicly. So I may have short-circuited, and for that I will try to clarify, because I think Chris Wallace and I were talking past each other because, of course, he could only talk to what I had told the FBI, and I appreciated that.Now, I have acknowledged repeatedly that using two e-mail accounts was a mistake, and I take responsibility for that.But I do think having him say that my answers to the FBI were truthful, and then I should quickly add what I said was consistent with what I had said publicly, and that is really sort of in my view trying to tie both ends together.”(Hillary Clinton,Remarks At The NAHJ/NABJ Conference, Washington, DC, 8/5/16)
