Bill Clinton had strong words for FBI Director James Comey: Bill Clinton accuses FBI of serving up a ‘load of bull’.
Besides the other things he said, Clinton asked the following:
“Do you really believe there are 300 career diplomats because that’s how many people were on these emails, all of whom were careless with national security? Do you believe that? Forget about Hillary, forget about her. Is that conceivable?”
The problem with this line of reasoning is it actually shows that each and every one of those 300 people was afraid to advise Hillary in strong enough language to quit breaking the law with her private server.
A few of those 300 people did dare to suggest to her that the private server was a bad idea, but not one of them was able to convince Hillary to replace it with an authorized government account.
This shows that she has trouble asking for or receiving advice about matters that affect her personally. This “small” detail has always been one of the worst aspects of her private server scandal, in my opinion.
So rather than defend her, Bill’s statements further indicts her while also showing no gratitude for Comey letting his wife off the hook when he clearly did not need to.
Here’s more detail on someone trying to get her to do right:
In November 2010, her deputy chief of staff for operations prodded her about “putting you on State email” to protect her email from spam. Mrs. Clinton declined. She replied that while she would consider a using a separate address or device, “I don’t want any risk of the personal being accessible.” (Source)
