CNN’s Sciutto: ‘The FBI’s Finding Contradicts Secretary Clinton’s Evolving Explanations of Her Email Use’

During Tuesday’s broadcast of CNN’s “The Lead,” guest host and Chief National Security Correspondent Jim Sciutto declared, “The FBI’s finding contradicts Secretary Clinton’s evolving explanations of her email use.”

Sciutto said that FBI Director James Comey issued “damning criticism” of Clinton’s email conduct. And “The FBI found that of the 30,000 emails Clinton turned over, 110 emails contained classified information at the time they were sent or received, including classifications ranging from top secret, the highest level, to secret, and confidential, the lowest level of classification. The FBI’s finding contradicts Secretary Clinton’s evolving explanations of her email use. Beginning with her claim that none of the information she read or emailed was sensitive when she read or sent them, implying they were only classified after the fact.”

After playing a clip of Clinton stating, “I am confident that I never sent, nor received any information that was classified at the time it was sent and received.” Scuitto stated, “In fact, the FBI found numerous emails containing information, which was classified at the time they were sent.”

Sciutto also played Clinton saying, “I’m confident that this process will prove that i never sent, nor received any email that was marked classified.” He then stated, “In fact, the process found that a small number of emails were marked classified at the time that she and her staff sent them.”

Sciutto added, “Comey also questioned Secretary Clinton’s argument that her private servers were never breached.” After playing a clip of Clinton declaring, “there were no security breaches.” Sciutto responded by playing Comey stating that it was “possible that hostile actors could gained access to Secretary Clinton’s personal email account.”
