Columnist Charles Krauthammer declared “it’s the 90s all over again” and predicted that Hillary Clinton’s e-mails are going to be “stonewalled from here until Election Day” on Tuesday’s “Special Report” on the Fox News Channel.
“It’s the 90s all over again, the key statement here is when she said ‘the server is private and I’m hanging on to it, no one’s going to have a look at it.’ She was asked ‘would you have an impartial, outside observer go in and decide which ones are private?’ And she said ‘no, basically we own it.’ And I think what this stems from is from the 1990s when she was very much against Bill acquiescing to a special prosecutor on Whitewater. She thought that was a catastrophic mistake, they should have continued stonewalling, the rest of the administration — Clinton administration assumed that would relieve the pressure, and it did for a while. But the problem is then the Monica Lewinsky scandal happened, and the prosecutor just sort of shifted into Lewinsky investigation mode, and it almost destroyed her husband’s presidency. She is determined never to let things out of her control. So what she essentially is saying is ‘I control the e-mails, no one’s ever going to have a look at it.’ And she said ‘I had no reason to keep the private e-mails,’ which implies they are destroyed or deleted, but she is not going to make that mistake again. This is going to be stonewalled from here until Election Day” he stated.
