John Bolton: ‘Hillary Clinton Is A Threat To National Security’

Thursday at the the annual Conservative Political Action Conference hosted by the American Conservative Union in National Harbor, MD, former U.S. ambassador to the United Nations under President George W. Bush John Bolton attacked Democratic presidential hopeful Hillary Clinton, calling her “a threat to national security.”

Bolton said, “Hillary Clinton is a threat to national security roughly equivalent to Barack Obama. And the greatest proof of that threat is her utter, total disdain for the protection of classified information l entrusted to her as secretary of state. If she doesn’t have the wit to protect her own emails, how can we expect she is going to protect us? Now we have just had in the past twenty four hours a dramatic development in the ongoing criminal investigation in the email problem, the granting of immunity to a low ranking State Department person who set up the email server. This demonstrates that the Clinton campaign reaction to this thing has been a lie from the beginning. They have lied about the nature of the investigation. It was never a security investigation. They knew all along that the FBI and the Justice Department are not think tanks they don’t do security reviews, they investigate and prosecute violations of the criminal law, which is exactly what what we have here.”
