CNN’s Keilar: Hillary’s Claim About Classified Info During Commander-in-Chief Forum ‘Isn’t Exactly True’

On Wednesday’s broadcast of “CNN Tonight,” Senior Political Correspondent Brianna Keilar stated that Democratic presidential nominee former Secretary of State’s claim at NBC’s Commander-in-Chief forum that she talked about classified material on a system “wholly separate” from her private server “isn’t exactly true, because there was classified content, maybe it didn’t say a header on some of the emails, but the FBI made it clear there was classified information that went back and forth to Hillary Clinton, that went through her server.”

After playing a clip of Clinton saying that she “communicated about classified material on a wholly separate system.” Keilar said, “Now, the problem is that isn’t exactly true, because there was classified content, maybe it didn’t say a header on some of the emails, but the FBI made it clear there was classified information that went back and forth to Hillary Clinton, that went through her server. And it’s just an interesting point that she came out and made what I think some people felt was a new twist on her explanation, because even she had recently said, you know what, I would have done it differently, and what I’ve learned by trying to explain myself on this is that I sound like I’m making excuses, and she may have fallen in sort of to the trap that she outlined herself.”

Keilar added, after playing a clip of GOP presidential nominee Donald Trump commenting on his prior statement that he knows more about ISIS than the generals do, “[H]e didn’t really answer the question there. … He also seemed to talk about generals under Obama and Hillary Clinton. Those are his generals. It’s not like they go and he gets all new generals. So, there was that. There was also the comment that he made where he was asked about a tweet about sex assault, where he had said, ‘What did these geniuses expect when they put men & women together?’ In the armed services. That was something that got tremendous pickup. He stood by that. He said it was a correct tweet. … I think that’s probably something he’ll want to re-calibrate on, or maybe he won’t. But I think people will judge him for that.”

She concluded, “And then other thing, finally, that I would say is, just Hillary Clinton promising that there aren’t going to be ground troops in Iraq or Syria, this continues on the language that we’ve heard from President Obama, but it’s not exactly true. I think some people who are very familiar with military jargon say, okay, I understand that, that means there’s not conventional troops, but there are boots on the ground. There have been deaths of special forces at the hands of ISIS, and you can’t pretend, whether or not you want them there, that they aren’t.”
