Conservative columnist Charles Krauthammer led the charge on “Special Edition” Tuesday night after Fox News’ Ed Henry got a chance to grill Hillary Clinton over her use of a private email account while serving as secretary of state.
And his summary was devastating to the Democrat front-runner:
“This is the stonewall continued,” Krauthammer said after the panel watched a clip of the combative questioning.
“It worked for her husband, she thinks it will work for her. I doubt it.”
At least one statement during Hillary’s unusual news conference in Las Vegas is likely to cause her problems down the road, as she stuck to the increasingly frayed story that she handled no classified information on her private server during her four years as the nation’s top diplomat.
“Whether it was a personal account or a government account, I did not send classified material and I did not receive any material that was marked or designated ‘classified,’” Clinton said.
That was a day after the Washington Times reported that the number of documents that contain potentially classified information Clinton has turned over to the government had passed 300.
“I’m waiting for her to say, ‘at this point, what difference does it make?’ Which is her standard answer,” Krauthammer said.
But that’s not going to stop her defenses from crumbling, he added.
“She’s not going to be able to stonewall because it’s out of her hands,” Krauthammer said.
Clinton’s probably not going to be joking about it much more either, as she tried to do over the weekend in Iowa.
“What she doesn’t realize is, this is not a joke,” National Journal reporter Ron Fournier said. “And the prosecutor doesn’t think it’s a joke.”
