Hillary: ‘I Was Not Thinking A Lot’ When I Set Up Server

Democratic presidential candidate and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said, “I was not thinking a lot when I got in” and “I didn’t really stop and think, ‘What kind of email system will there be?'” In an interview aired on Friday’s broadcast of MSNBC’s “Andrea Mitchell Reports.”

Hillary was asked, “Did anyone in your inner circle say, ‘This isn’t such a good idea, let’s not do this?'” She answered, “You know, I was not thinking a lot when I got in. There was so much work to be done. We had so many problems around the world. I didn’t really stop and think, ‘What kind of email system will there be?'”

Hillary added that she doesn’t think her use of private email raises questions about her judgement because “the facts are pretty clear that we had a lot of hard work, hard choices to make in those four years. And I’m very proud of the work we did. I’m very proud of all the people that i worked with. I think we really served our country well. And now the State Department has everything that they could have. So, at the end of the day, I am sorry that this has been confusing to people and has raised a lot of questions. But there are answers to all of these questions, and I will continue to provide those answers, and those answers have been confirmed and affirmed by the State Department and by other government officials. And, eventually, I’ll get to testify in public, and I’m sure it will be a long and grueling time there. But all the questions will be answered. And I take responsibility, and it wasn’t the best choice.”
