Hillary Clinton Defends Her Email Use In ‘Fox News Sunday ‘Interview (VIDEO)

During an interview with Chris Wallace on “Fox News Sunday,” Hillary Clinton defended her use of email as secretary of state, which has come under renewed scrutiny now that the FBI did not recommend charges against Clinton.

“I made a mistake not using two different email addresses,” she said on “Fox News Sunday.” “It is certainly not anything that I ever would do again.”

Wallace noted that before the FBI released its findings, Clinton said that she did not send or receive classified information over her email. The Fox host told Clinton that FBI Director James Comey said that “none of those things that you told the American public were true.”

“That’s not what I heard Director Comey say,” Clinton responded. “Director Comey said that my answers were truthful and what I’ve said is consistent with what I have told the American people: that there were decisions discussed and made to classify retroactively certain of the emails.”

Wallace then noted that some of the emails found by the FBI contained markings for classified information. Clinton said that some staffers who sent her emails “made the wrong call” in including certain information.

“At the time, there was no reason, in my view, to doubt the professionalism and the determination by the people who work every single day on behalf of our country,” she said.

Dear Reader,

When we asked recently what makes TPM different from other outlets, readers cited factors like honesty, curiosity, transparency, and our vibrant community. They also pointed to our ability to report on important stories and trends long before they are picked up by mainstream outlets; our ability to contextualize information within the arc of history; and our focus on the real-world consequences of the news.

Our unique approach to reporting and presenting the news, however, wouldn’t be possible without our readers’ support. That’s not just marketing speak, it’s true: our work would literally not be possible without readers deciding to become members. Not only does member support account for more than 80% of TPM’s revenue, our members have helped us build an engaged and informed community. Many of our best stories were born from reader tips and valuable member feedback.

We do what other news outlets can’t or won’t do because our members’ support gives us real independence.

If you enjoy reading TPM and value what we do, become a member today.
