Furious Hillary Clinton Slams FBI: “I Did Nothing Wrong!”

Angry Hillary Clinton insists "I did nothing wrong!"

An angry Hillary Clinton has slammed the FBI’s claims that she was “extremely careless” in handling classified material, claiming the comments are nonsense. 

In her first public comment since the embarrassing truth came to light about her incompetence as Secretary of State, Hillary attempted to downplay claims by FBI director James Comey that she was negligent.

Nytimes.com reports:

Although Mr. Comey, in a congressional hearing on Thursday, pointed out several contradictions between what Mrs. Clinton had said publicly about her email use and what she said in sworn testimony, Mrs. Clinton insisted Friday that she did not intentionally send or receive any classified information through her private account. She also appeared to be spreading the responsibility to her State Department staff.

“I think there are about 300 people in the government, mostly in the State Department, but in other high positions in the government with whom I emailed over the course of four years — they, I believe, did not believe they were sending any material that was classified,” Mrs. Clinton said on CNN. “They were pursuing their responsibilities. I do not think they were careless.”

She added, “And as I have said many times, I certainly did not believe that I received or sent any material that was classified.”

Mrs. Clinton, the presumptive Democratic presidential nominee, has been under fire from Republicans this week after Mr. Comey announced on Tuesday that while she did not violate any laws, she did mismanage classified material. Mr. Comey said that there was evidence that Mrs. Clinton and her team “were extremely careless in their handling of very sensitive, highly classified information.”

Some leading Republicans have argued that Mrs. Clinton should not be given access to the classified information that presidential nominees usually receive because she could not be trusted with it. Donald J. Trump, the presumptive Republican nominee, has been hammering her as inept as well.

At the congressional hearing on Thursday, Mr. Comey also criticized Mrs. Clinton’s lawyers for their handling of her emails and suggested that they might have deleted classified material without her knowledge. And he said that thousands of Mrs. Clinton’s work-related emails had not been turned over for review, despite claims that they were.

During her television interviews on Friday, Mrs. Clinton clung to Mr. Comey’s remark at the hearing suggesting that some of the emails that she sent or received were not clearly marked as classified.

“Well, I think the director clarified that comment to some extent, pointing out that some of what had been thought to be classified apparently was not,” Mrs. Clinton said, when asked to acknowledge that she was careless.

Mrs. Clinton also maintained that there was no reason to believe that her server had been compromised even though Mr. Comey said this week that “it is possible that hostile actors gained access to Secretary Clinton’s personal email account.”

On MSNBC on Friday, Mrs. Clinton said she was confident that such a breach did not occur.

“I think he was speculating,” she said of Mr. Comey. “But if you go by the evidence, there is no evidence that the system was breached or hacked successfully. And I think that what’s important here is to follow the evidence.”

    So did she not BELIEVE she sent any material that was classified…. or did she not send any material that was classified? Caught in another lie, she doubles down on the lie and rants and raves. Is this really the conduct of someone we want as POTUS? Nope. The DNC is on their own with this one – I won’t vote for her. #BernieOrBust

    ” I don’t believe they believed’, I sure as hell do not believe a word that she says.

    “No evidence that it was hacked” although Julian Assange was able to publish 33,000 of these “unhacked” emails. Russia leaked quotes from them and a Romanian hacker is in jail because he hacked her. Does she even know what the truth is? I suppose based on the low standard of integrity Clintons apply to themselves, this might be true for her in her own mind. Maybe,

    I did nothing wrong is an opinion and would be expected coming from a known liar and war criminal. Facts are not opinions. I can prima facie prove Mrs. Hillary Clinton is 100% a Christian genocidal mass murdering U.N. collaborating complicit communist… period… https://jamessssmith.com/

    Did nothing wrong? There are no laws that apply to her. She sold influence and weapons to our enemies. There is nothing wrong with that, if you are a traitor. She lied to congress. We all saw it. When Comey outed her on that. He was talking to voters in the next presidential election. He knew that any case against Hillary would never be brought by the corrupt AG. These are dire times in America. Innocents will die and our police are being told to STAND DOWN in Cleveland during the GOP convention. They are no longer protesters when they start killing people. BLM needs to remember that.
