You can’t make this shit up. They’ve gone from denying everything to jjoking about it to finally saying sorry, and now — remarkably — claiming it was a good idea. How absurd.
Days after Hillary Clinton finally acknowledged that using a private email server while secretary of State was “a mistake,” a super-PAC supporting her says it was actually the responsible, safe approach to data security.
While the Democratic presidential nominee’s notorious server doesn’t appear to have been hacked, the federal government definitely was, Correct the Record said in a report out Friday.
“The U.S. government has been hacked on numerous occasions, compromising even the most sensitive of information,” Correct the Record said. “Anyone who attempts to argue that the contents of Hillary Clinton’s email would have been more secure on a government server must contend with these facts.”
Correct the Record, founded by Clinton ally David Brock, spun off from parent group American Bridge 21st Century in May to focus exclusively on defending Clinton from political and media attacks.
Critics have lambasted Clinton’s use of a private server as a threat to national security. The FBI is investigating the contents of the server, trying to determine whether it was compromised by hackers.
The Correct the Record report catalogues evidence — culled primarily from news reports — that Clinton’s server was not compromised.
Culled from news reports reporting the lies they’ve already told us, of course.
The report notes that no clintonemail.com messages were found in the Manning Wikileaks dump, unlike thousands of State Department correspondences, and that a State Department spokeswoman said in March that there was “no indication that the email was compromised.”
The super-PAC also detailed the security safeguards Clinton used to protect the server.
Safeguards, huh? So, um, why did they guy running the server take the Fifth yesterday? Perhaps Brock and his insane clown posse would like to testify about this under oath?
