This past Sunday FOX News played Chris Wallace’s interview with Hillary Clinton. In the video I posted here, Clinton claimed at 16:35 she had admitted her mistake in connection with the email scandal; her “mistake” was “not using two different email addresses.” That’s what she said. Really.
Taking questions at a gathering of the National Association of Black Journalists and National Association of Hispanic Journalists yesterday, Clinton purported to acknowledge her “mistake” again. Asked about her assertion in the interview with Wallace that FBI Director Comey had vouched for her veracity, Clinton was ready for the question. She spoke from notes to which she turned her eyes several times in the course of another set of twisted comments. She is having some difficulty keeping her lies straight.
This time around Clinton commented that she had “short-circuited” Comey’s remarks (video below). In the course of these comments Clinton said: “I have acknowledged repeatedly that using two email accounts was a mistake” (whatever that means). Toward the end of these comments she said: “I regret using one account” (whatever that means). All in all, another bizarre display of false regret.
Note that Chris Cillizza gets this part of the story wrong in his Washington Post column on Clinton’s performance yesterday. Cillizza writes: “This is by now a very familiar pattern with Clinton when it comes to her email server. She simply refuses to acknowledge any misstep or wrongdoing beyond an initial poor decision to exclusively use a private email server for ‘convenience’ sake.” Would that The Fix (as Cillizza calls his column) would fix that.
