Columnist Charles Krauthammer said that Hillary Clinton’s e-mails are ” a version of ‘it depends what the [meaning of] the word ‘is’ is'” on Wednesday’s “Special Report” on the Fox News Channel.
Krauthammer argued Clinton was “clearly constructing a system in which you control access. If anybody ever demands access you will have your lawyers out there for a year blocking, questioning, and protecting it. And, as we just heard, if you want to make something disappear by swapping out a server, you can do it, and nobody knows. Why would you do that if you’re Secretary of State and you’re not intending at some point to be secretive about it? This is the same old Clinton that we know. And I think the reason it hurts her is because we’ve seen the movie before throughout the ’90s. The Clintons aren’t just entitled, they also have a sense that they are to be protected in a way no one else is, and then they end up where they’re accused of violating either the law or the practice making distinctions that are — the adjective Clintonian was invented for these fine distinctions between legal, illegal, proper and improper. This is a version of ‘it depends what the [meaning of] the word ‘is’ is.”
