New emails released by Judicial Watch appear to show Hillary Clinton acknowledging the risk of using her personal Blackberry for State Department business.
A February 22, 2009 email exchange between Clinton and her then-chief of staff Cheryl Mills shows them trying and failing to communicate over a secure line. Eventually, Clinton wrote, “I give up. Call me on my home #.”
In a February 27, 2009 email, Clinton apologized to health care activist Mark Hyman for failing to respond to a message because “no Blackberry contact permitted in my office.”
On “Outnumbered” today, Judge Jeanine Pirro said this is just more evidence that Clinton knew exactly what she was doing when she set up her private, unsecured server, despite her claims to the contrary.
“There is no question that she signed an agreement that she would not communicate on these non-secure ways of communication,” Judge Jeanine said, explaining that the rules are made very clear to State Department employees.
She added, however, that she doesn’t believe this will actually affect the 2016 race, since Clinton voters will continue to support her regardless.
Judge Jeanine said it should affect the race, though, because it highlights Clinton’s untrustworthiness.
She pointed out that Democratic National Committee Chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz recently said that Americans don’t care about the investigation into Clinton’s private server, they just want a president “who has their back.”
“How can a president have their back when her emails are being hacked into because she intended for them to be non-secure?” Judge Jeanine asked.
She added that Clinton’s strategy through this whole process has been “lie, lie, lie.”
“It’s the playbook!”
