Pataki Demands Investigation: Hillary Actions an ‘Insult to the American People’

Wednesday on MSNBC’s “Thomas Roberts Live,” potential 2016 Republican presidential candidate former Gov. George Pataki (R-NY), said the stonewalling actions of former Secretary of State and the Democrats front-runner presidential candidate for 2016, Hillary Clinton are “an insult to the American people” and that it “demands an investigation.”

Host Thomas Roberts asked, “What would you say about how she’s handling herself on the campaign trail and the strategy?”

Pataki replied, “I think the strategy is an insult to the American people. She is a declared candidate, and she is not answering questions. Five minutes and 28 days, and she goes out and says, ‘I want those emails released.’ Not the 30,000 she deleted. This is a red herring. Any criminal defendant would be delighted to be able to go through their server and give the prosecutors what they choose and then say please release that. I think this demands an investigation, and I think the fair press should say we deserve to look at those 30,000 deleted emails. She was secretary of state, she violated protocol by having a server in her basement. The American people had the right to know what she did.”
