CNN’s King: Hillary Claiming Transparency ‘Makes You Roll Your Eyes a Little Bit’

Sunday on CNN’s “Inside Politics,” host John King scoffed at Hillary Clinton’s claim of transparency in a discussion about reports that the Justice Department now getting a referral to investigate whether sensitive classified information was mishandled her using a private email server during her tenure as Secretary of State.

After playing a clip of Hillary Clinton saying, “I am confident that I never sent nor received any information that was classified at the time it was sent and received. If we were not asking for it to be made public, there would not be a debate. This is all about my desire to have transparency and make the information public.”

King said, “That last part makes you roll your eyes a little bit. She was not exactly at the forefront of transparency in trying to make this public. If she had listened to the president of the United States, her boss on day one of the administration and done this on a government server we wouldn’t have these issues.”
