Fox News’ Henry to WH: Given China Hack, Was it Smart for Hillary to Use Private Server?

Friday at the White House press briefing, Fox News chief White House correspondent Ed Henry asked  press secretary Josh Earnest if given today’s news reports on the massive hack of government computers by potentially China, was it smart to let Hillary Clinton use a private server during her tenure as secretary of state.

Ed Henry asked, “Several times on the hack, you talked about this being a threat to national security and that our adversaries are penetrating  the computer networks of the government and private companies. Given all of that, do you think it makes sense for the president’s Secretary of State Hillary Clinton to have a private server?”

Earnest replied, “That’s a creative way to inject that line of questioning into this discussion … I’m not qualified to render judgment about what sort of vulnerability that may have created.”
