On Wednesday’s “Hugh Hewitt Show,” former Democratic presidential nominee and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton stated she wished the government “had had as high a level of security as there was on the server I used.”
Hewitt asked Clinton about her private email server being compromised by a foreign intelligence service. She responded that there is “no evidence” that this ever happened.
She added, “There is no doubt that our government servers at the time I was serving as secretary of State were compromised. And there is, at least insofar as we know, no evidence that my private server was. And I think that the Russians, encouraged by then-candidate Trump, were certainly doing everything they could to find anything that would have been on that server. Now, why do I say that? Because it is clear that the only server compromised were State Department servers. Now, we know that Defense Department and White House and Personnel Management, a lot of government servers were compromised. And, you know, I really have no reason to believe that mine ever was. And certainly, given the FBI’s investigation, given the Russians’ absolute desire to get anything they could, there is no evidence whatsoever that my server, which, remember, was set up before I chose to use it, in part for convenience, I will say, as I have said many times before, and my husband’s office set it up, a former president’s office, and they had the highest level of security. I wish the government had had as high a level of security as there was on the server I used.”
