Here Are Hillary's Lies

Above-the-Fold Update:

Hillary Claims:

1. I didn't want to carry two phones, one for my personal emails and one for my government emails, so like I violated the law and stuff. No big deal. So she's claiming she just didn't want to carry an extra 4 ounce phone which, by the way, would not even be carried by her, if she didn't want to; The Queen has stafflings attending to her constantly. She could have made Marie Harf carry it.

2. She claims that "the vast majority" of her emails went to government employees, so they would have been "immediately" saved on government servers. She does not discuss the emails to people who are not government employees -- such as donors to the Clinton Global Initiative.

She doesn't mention her top aides also being on her private system.

She skips over the part where the law says all emails must be preserved on the government's servers.

3. She says "I chose not to keep personal, private emails." In other words, she already got rid of her "personal" emails.

So if you can prove any email was deleted -- well, I guess she considered that "personal."

4. "I took the unprecedented step of asking that the State Department make all of my work-related emails" available to the public.

Note that the only press at this event was the typical international, UN crowd, who are generally softer and really Hate Republicans. The first question posed to her, from a Turkish reporter, was "if you were a man, would all this fuss being made." (sic)

Andrea Mitchell asks, Can you explain when and how you decided to get rid of "personal" emails, and are you bothered that you take so much money from countries like Saudi Arabia, which treats women like your husband does?

A reporter asks if she deleted any work-related emails, and further asks if she will be willing to prove this by permitting independent experts to examine her servers. She says she didn't delete any work-related emails, and says, without saying it, No, you're not going to see my server.

She keeps making this claim that she gets to decide which emails are private or not. This is not true.

Asked about whether it's appropriate to conduct government business on her own server, and if she cleared this with anyone, and if there is any precedent for this, she ignores the questions completely. Asked about security, she says this system was first used for Bill Clinton's office, and avows that it is secure and that there was never a security breach.

How would they know, asked anyone who has a modicum of intelligence.

She is being asked again why she did not meet the recordkeeping obligations, and who, if anyone, she had cleared this with. Once again she claims that she's allowed to use private email (she's not), and that she emailed people on their government account. She says the latter suffices for recordkeeping law purposes, quoting some language (for the law, I guess) that it doesn't matter what form this recordkeeping takes.

This is all wrong. Once again, if she emails Algeria after Algeria donates $500,000 to her family, and when Algeria has business in front of her State Department, that email is not getting saved by State Department servers, as Algeria, obviously, does not have an email account on State Department servers.

She keeps ignoring this. Also, she's ignoring... almost everything.

Um...
