"I NEVER HAD A SUBPOENA..." is such a breathtaking lie, what made Hillary say it ?
Brianna Keilar's first exclusive TV interview with Hillary on CNN was a lose, Lose, LOSE deal for the Hillary Clinton Campaign
Hillary Clinton and the HRC Campaign(s) need another roll-out and reintroduction ASAP --- things are still not working-out for her so far in this campaign
It was supposed to be an easy first interview, with a hand-picked interviewer on a friendly network. How did everything go so wrong so fast? By mid-week Hillary had an albatross hanging around her neck and the right wing media was hooting and cat-calling, and doing hand-stands and back-flips.
The big albatross around Hillary Clinton's neck is that she said this in her interview with CNN'S Brianna Keilar: "... I've never had a subpoena. There is - again, let's take a deep breath here. Everything I did was permitted by law and regulation. I had one device. When I mailed anybody in the government, it would go into the government system.... Now I didn't have to turn over anything...." [The complete interview segment about the E-mails is below at ***]
Now, the only "Correct the Record" debate anybody can have about any of this is whether it's >>> ONE BIG LIE <<< or >>> SEVERAL LIES STITCHED TOGETHER <<<
HILLARY'S BIG LIE WAS AN UNFORCED ERROR THAT SHOWS HOW BAD A "CANDIDATE" HILLARY CLINTON REALLY ISSeveral thing s came out of the whole interview. Generally, with all of her mugging and posturing, Hillary gave a real live visible demonstration why a majority of the country doesn't like or trust her.
The big take away is that the former Secretary of State waded into the quicksand about her E-mails and all; and Mrs' Clinton showed that she still has no satisfactory answers about what she did with her E-mails, exactly, or why she did it. What's worse for her and her campaign is that she showed her natural inclination and propensity to lie about things when she feels cornered.
CNN's Brianna Keilar did not have the reputation of being a tough interviewer, but in her interview of Hillary Clinton last week, she was tough enough to give Hillary Clinton a tough time, and make her look really bad. --- As bad as anyone since Sarah Palin had her tough time with Katie Couric in 2008.
Even when the interview ended on a lighter note with comparisons of SNL's Amy Poeler versus Kate Mc Kinnon as the better "Hillary Clinton"; and Hillary saying that she was the best "Hillary Clinton." One thing shined through --- The real Hillary had only one thing right >>> She' s a not ready for prime-time player --- certainly when it comes to TV interviews.
*** Here's the Clinton-Keilar interview segment about the E-mails ( From [http://cnnpressroom.blogs.cnn.com/2015/07/07/cnn-exclusive-hillary-clintons-first-national-interview-of-2016-race/]):
KEILAR: One of the issues that has eroded some trust that we've seen is the issue of your email practices while you were secretary of state. I think there's a lot of people who don’t understand what your thought process was on that.
Can you tell me the story of how you decided to delete 33,000 emails and how that deletion was executed?
CLINTON: Well, let's start from the beginning. Everything I did was permitted. There was no law. There was no regulation. There was nothing that did not give me the full authority to decide how I was going to communicate. Previous secretaries of state have said they did the same thing. And people across the government knew that I used one device - maybe it was because I am not the most technically capable person and wanted to make it as easy as possible.
KEILAR: But you said they - that they did the same thing, that they used a personal server and -- KEILAR: - subpoena deleted emails from them?
CLINTON: You know, you're starting with so many assumptions that are - I've never had a subpoena. There is - again, let's take a deep breath here. Everything I did was permitted by law and regulation. I had one device. When I mailed anybody in the government, it would go into the government system.
Now I didn't have to turn over anything. I chose to turn over 55,000 pages because I wanted to go above and beyond what was expected of me because I knew the vast majority of everything that was official already was in the State Department system.
And now I think it's kind of fun. People get a real-time behind-the-scenes look at what I was emailing about and what I was communicating about.
KEILAR: Wearing warm socks, you said to John Podesta.
CLINTON: Exactly and - or, you know -
KEILAR: Working a fax machine -
CLINTON: - yes, a secure fax machine, which is harder to work than the regular.
So yes, this is being blown up with no basis in law or in fact. That's fine. I get it. This is being, in effect, used by the Republicans in the Congress, OK. But I want people to understand what the truth is. And the truth is everything I did was permitted and I went above and beyond what anybody could have expected in making sure that if the State Department didn't capture something, I made a real effort to get it to them.
And I had no obligation to do any of that. So let's set the record straight. And those 55,000 pages, they will be released over the course of this year. People can, again, make their own judgments.
[KEILAR:] I know you say you were permitted. I just am trying to understand some of the thought process behind it. One former state attorney general, a Democrat, told CNN that they know of no lawyer who would advise someone, a client, facing the kind of scrutiny that you've been facing to wipe their server.
I mean, what do you say to that?
CLINTON: Well, what I say to that is turned over everything I was obligated to turn over. And then I moved on. People delete their personal emails, their work-related emails, whatever emails they have on a regular basis. I turned over everything that I could imagine.
Now being - sitting in a meeting in the State Department, asking for iced tea, may not rise to the level of negotiating peace, but I went above and beyond. That's why there's 55,000 pages of my emails.
And so I think people have an interesting time behind the scenes. And all I can tell you is that the law, the regulation did not in any way stand in my way of being permitted to do what I did. And as I said, prior secretaries of state - I mean, Secretary Powell has admitted he did exactly the same thing.
So I think both Secretary Powell and I are viewed as public servants. We do our very best to serve our country and he's - he has such a distinguished records. You know, I have served my country as well.
We both did the same thing. Now years have passed, so he clearly doesn't have anything left. I did everything I could to make sure people got anything that was related that I had.
