• Wait, Did Hillary Tell CNN That Being Forced To Release Emails Is ‘Kind of Fun’?

    Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said Tuesday, during her first national television interview since her presidential announcement, that she thinks the release of her work emails after a contentious lawsuit is “kind of fun.”

    “I think there’s a lot of people who don’t understand what your thought process was on that,” CNN’s Brianna Keilar said in regards to Clinton’s private email server. “Can you tell me the story of how you decided to delete 33,000 e-mails and how that deletion was executed?”

    Clinton said every step she took with her emails was “permitted by law,” and claimed that she went “above and beyond what anyone could have expected.”

    “There was no law, there was no regulation, there was nothing that did not give me the full authority to decide how I was going to communicate,” Clinton said.

    “Previous secretaries of state have said they did the same thing,” she added. “And people across the government knew I used one device, maybe it was because I am not the most technically capable person and wanted to make it as easy as possible.”

    “They used a personal server, and while facing a subpoena, deleted e-mails from them?” Keilar pressed.

    “You know, you’re starting with so many assumptions — I’ve never had a subpoena, there’s nothing — again, let’s take a deep breath here. Now, I didn’t have to turn over anything. I chose to turn over 55,000 pages because I wanted to go above and beyond what was expected of me because I knew the vast majority of everything that was official already was in the State Department system,” Clinton said. “And now I think it’s kind of fun. People get a real-time behind-the-scenes look at what I was e-mailing about, and what I was communicating about.”
