Conservative columnist Charles Krauthammer called the State Department’s release of nearly 300 Hillary Clinton emails “a farce” because they were handpicked.
“There isn’t a shred of evidence because she shredded the evidence,” Krauthammer said on Fox News’ “Special Report” Friday. “This whole release is a farce.”
Because Clinton controlled the data, “we are getting the cleaned up version,” he said. “And I think they are succeeding, the Clinton people. Because everybody is hungrily looking through stuff pre-scrubbed. They are not going to find anything. The Clinton’s are secretive and deceptive, but they are not stupid.”
Krauthammer predicted Clinton will actually try to use the release as a positive in her presidential bid.
“Whatever is there, whatever is embarrassing, whatever is indicting has been scrubbed and removed,” he said. “So we are going to have this long saga of the release. She will take the credit for, ‘I asked for it to be released, I wanted it to be released.’ But it’s the wrong stuff. And when people attack her later in the campaign, she will say it’s all been released, the press has looked at it,” he said.
