MSNBC’s O’Donnell: No Explanation for Hillary E-mail Story

MSNBC’s “The Last Word” host Lawrence O’Donnell said that there is “no conceivable, rational explanation” for Hillary Clinton only using a personal e-mail during her time as Secretary of State on Monday.

O’Donnell dubbed Clinton’s actions “a stunning breach of security,” adding “if it’s true that she never used a State Department e-mail address, we have something that, at first read, has no conceivable, rational explanation to it.”

New York Times reporter Jeremy Peters said that the story raises questions about how “forthcoming” Clinton is.

MSNBC Senior Editor Beth Fouhy wondered who in the State Department would have allowed Clinton to use only a personal e-mail for so long and how no one could have noticed Clinton repeatedly sending e-mails from a personal account. She also stated that it “makes no sense” for Clinton to act in such a manner.

Fouhy concluded the discussion by pointing out that the e-mails were discovered by the Benghazi Select Committee that critics had dismissed as a “political,” and “redundant” waste of time.
