Guess Joe isn’t in the pockets of the Clintons. This is epic! Check it out.
MSNBC host Joe Scarborough on Thursday slammed Hillary Clinton, calling on the Democratic presidential front-runner to “stop lying” about her personal email account.
“It’s pretty remarkable,” he said on “Morning Joe” of Clinton’s response to a watchdog report that found Clinton and her top aides did not comply with policy while she served as secretary of State.
“I don’t understand why you put out a statement like that,” Scarborough added. “Stop lying, stop digging.
“I screwed up. I’m terribly sorry,” he offered as alternate responses. “I hope the American people will forgive me and I hope they will let us move on to the issues that matter.”
The State Department’s Office of the Inspector General’s report said that Clinton circumnavigated policies designed to follow federal records laws by exclusively using a personal email address routed through a private server. Clinton might have jeopardized official secrets, it said, adding that she also never requested permission for the technology arrangement. The watchdog agency’s report said that a personal server in her New York home “would not” have gotten approval because of “the security risks in doing so.”
Clinton’s Democratic presidential campaign on Wednesday dismissed the report.
