It sure sounds like Obama is convinced of Hillary’s ‘innocence’… From one crook to another, he ought to know! What do you think the chances are that Obama will give Hillary Rodham Clinton a ‘blanket’ pardon before he leaves office?
President Obama is quizzed about the investigation by the FBI Justice Department into former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s private server and non-government e-mail address by FOX News’ Chris Wallace on this week’s edition of FOX News Sunday. In the interview, Wallace confronted Obama if he can still say flatly that Clinton did not jeopardize America’s secrets. Obama also guaranteed politics will not influence the outcome of the investigation.
Obama contended she did not jeopardize America’s national security, however was “careless” in terms of managing e-mails that she has owned. Obama said the scandal needs to be put in “perspective” as Clinton “served her country” and did an outstanding job.
“Here’s what I know,” Obama told Wallace. “Hillary Clinton was an outstanding Secretary of State. She would never intentionally put America in any kind of jeopardy.”
“You were prepared to say she didn’t jeopardize,” Chris Wallace said.
“I continue to believe she has not jeopardized America’s national security,” Obama defended Clinton. “Now what I also said is that — and she’s acknowledged — that there’s a carelessness in terms of managing e-mails that she has owned. And she recognizes that. But I also think is important to keep this in perspective. This is somebody who served her country for four years as Secretary of State and did an outstanding job and no one has suggested that in some ways as a consequence of how she’s handled e-mails that that detracted from her excellent ability to carry out her duties.”
