Hillary Clinton Sets The Record Straight On Just How Many 'Classified' E-mails She Had In Epic Twitter Thread
Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton decided to set the record straight about exactly what was going on with the "classified" emails on her private email server in a Twitter thread on Tuesday.
In light of Trump's fans beginning to try to use the investigation about her private email server to justify any potential crimes Trump might have committed involving classified data, Clinton decided it was time to clarify a few things.
The first—and probably most important point she made—was she had exactly no classified emails on her server.
Zip, zilch, zero.
\u201cI can\u2019t believe we\u2019re still talking about this, but my emails\u2026\n\nAs Trump\u2019s problems continue to mount, the right is trying to make this about me again. There\u2019s even a \u201cClinton Standard."\n\nThe fact is that I had zero emails that were classified.\u201d— Hillary Clinton (@Hillary Clinton) 1662476052
She then said James Comey already admitted as much—as did Trump's own administration.
\u201cComey admitted he was wrong after he claimed I had classified emails. \n\nTrump\u2019s own State Department, under two different Secretaries, found I had no classified emails.\u201d— Hillary Clinton (@Hillary Clinton) 1662476052
She went on to point out Trump, on the other hand, did have multiple classified documents in his possession in an unsecured location after he left office.
\u201cBy contrast, Trump has hundreds of documents clearly marked classified, and the investigation just started.\u201d— Hillary Clinton (@Hillary Clinton) 1662476052
As one might expect, she's beyond tired of rehashing this..."But her emails!"
\u201cI\u2019m more tired of talking about this than anyone, but here we are. \n\nIf you\u2019re interested in the facts, you can read more here:\n\nhttps://t.co/lp7XqnSd4G\u201d— Hillary Clinton (@Hillary Clinton) 1662476052
Quite a few people pointed out the probable futility of Clinton's statement in the replies, though.
\u201c@HillaryClinton We know that, but MAGA won't believe it. I voted for you twice and Can only wonder what this country would have been like if you had got your win in 2016.\u201d— Hillary Clinton (@Hillary Clinton) 1662476052
\u201c@HillaryClinton They don't care about facts. Trump & his cult were still chanting "lock her up" last week. THREE emails were not properly marked as classified & turned out not to be classified at all. Comey admitted it. Trump confessed to stealing classified documents. https://t.co/qXdh9rnNZi\u201d— Hillary Clinton (@Hillary Clinton) 1662476052
Some speculated about what Trump's followers' next move would be.
\u201c@HillaryClinton @AshInWonderland I am surprised trump or the GOP hasn't blamed you for sneaking into Mar a Lago and planting all those classified documents he stole. @HillaryClinton\u201d— Hillary Clinton (@Hillary Clinton) 1662476052
Others thanked Clinton for her candor.
\u201c@HillaryClinton Thank you for reminding people of the truth.\nThey are spending millions of dollars twisting the truth. \nPlease keep reminding people. We need your help (sigh) again.\u201d— Hillary Clinton (@Hillary Clinton) 1662476052
\u201c@HillaryClinton Mrs. Clinton, the world would be so different if you\u2019d won,you did(popular vote). That should be the only thing that elects officials.All you ever wanted was to help raise the lives of the masses. You are courageous and will forever be a role model.Thank you for your service\u201d— Hillary Clinton (@Hillary Clinton) 1662476052
\u201c@HillaryClinton @AnnBrenoff This country owes @HillaryClinton the biggest apology. She was right about everything and she was robbed of her presidency.\u201d— Hillary Clinton (@Hillary Clinton) 1662476052
While some may still question the veracity of Clinton's statement, it has been widely reported Trump had multiple classified and top secret documents in his possession when the FBI searched Mar-a-Lago.
Trump has even responded to it, and was mocked accordingly.
That probably won't stop his fanbase from trying to spin reality in their favor again, though.
