Hillary Is Totally Sorry You’re “Confused” About Her Email Scandal

See, it’s not really about the potential violations of federal law, including the Espionage Act. It’s not about her potentially exposing classified and sensitive government information, much less improperly handing the same. It’s not about the potential for the information to be hacked. Nor about the server being insecure. Nor using the server being a way to avoid oversight and freedom of information acts. And don’t even get her started on illegally wiping the server. Not, it’s all your problem

(NBC News) In an exclusive interview with NBC News/MSNBC’s Andrea Mitchell on Friday, Hillary Clinton said she’s “sorry” there’s been so much controversy over her private email server, but declined to apologize for the decision to use it. She also suggested that GOP front-runner Donald Trump is unqualified to be president and weighed in on the surprisingly robust challenge to her candidacy from Democratic primary rival Bernie Sanders.

“At the end of the day, I am sorry that this has been confusing to people and has raised a lot of questions, but there are answers to all these questions,” Clinton said of her email server after being pressed by Mitchell on whether she should apologize for the controversy that has dogged her campaign from the outset. “And I take responsibility and it wasn’t the best choice.”

Those questions are so easy to answer that her tech support guy has told Congress he will plead the 5th to every question (which, really, is only viable if the answers would incriminate himself). But, hey, you’re confused! You just don’t understand, I guess, why Hillary would refuse to use the legally required State Department email address and system, along with approved devices.

She explained that she had used a personal email account as a senator from New York and didn’t spend much time considering alternatives when she became secretary of state in 2009. “I did all my business on my personal email [in the Senate],” Clinton said. “I was not thinking a lot when I got in [to the State Department]. There was so much work to be done. We had so many problems around the world. I didn’t really stop and think what kind of email system will there be.”

She wasn’t thinking a lot. She didn’t stop and take the time to think. If this doesn’t make it into a Republican commercial hammering her, the GOP should give it up. Those kinds of comments do not exactly inspire confidence in her capabilities to be POTUS.

Anyhow, ignorance of the law is not an excuse, as the saying goes. Well, I once got away with doing 45 in a 35 because the speed limit sign was hidden behind a tree, and the previous section of the road was 45. But, hey, I wasn’t sending classified information on North Korea via insecure email in contradiction to the law, which she was supposed to be read in on when she took over State. She received briefings on What Is Allowed And What Is Not Allowed. She would have had people Telling Her These Things. She chose to ignore.

But, hey, this is all really you’re problem, you know.
