Hillary Clinton says she ‘short-circuited’ during Chris Wallace email interview
When Hillary Clinton appeared for an interview with Chris Wallace last Sunday she blatantly lied to the American people about what FBI Director James Comey said during his testimony in front of the Congress about her email scandal.
Earlier today Hillary Clinton tried to clarify what she said in that ill-fated interview by claiming, in a long-winded rambling explanation, she and the host were talking over each other and because of this she “short-circuited” and mixed up what James Comey told her privately about what she testified to the FBI and what she has been telling the American people.
Here is more:
And I have said during the interview and many other occasions over the past months, that what I told the FBI, which he said was truthful, is consistent with what I have said publicly,” Clinton explained Friday. “So I may have short-circuited it and for that, I, you know, will try to clarify because I think, you know, Chris Wallace and I were probably talking past each other because of course, he could only talk to what I had told the FBI and I appreciated that.”
“But I do think, you know, having him say that my answers to the FBI were truthful and then I should quickly add, what I said was consistent with what I had said publicly. And that’s really sort of in my view trying to tie both ends together,” she added.
So basically she is defending lying to the American people last Sunday by saying that lie was consistent with the lies she has been telling the American people for months and she mixed up this lie with a private conversation she had with James Comey. That is one hell of a defense…
If James Comey did tell Hillary Clinton privately that her answers to the FBI were truthful than she did not tell the FBI the same thing she told the American people, but of course we do not know what she told the FBI because the transcripts have been kept from us–if they exist at all.
Just a reminder to the American people what James Comey testified in front of the Congress:
I guess it all depends on what your definition of is is…
