Give Hillary Clinton this much: She’s absolutely fearless about lying on national television.
On Fox News Sunday, she again claimed she did nothing wrong in relying on that home-brewed e-mail server, and never sent or received classified material. Then she declared that FBI Director James Comey has confirmed her statements on the matter as truthful.
When Chris Wallace noted that Comey said just the reverse, she countered: “Director Comey said that my answers were truthful and what I’ve said is consistent with what I have told the American people.”
Her aides later “clarified” that she was citing Comey’s statement that she hadn’t lied to the FBI. But the bureau chief’s on record saying her repeated public claims are false:
“Secretary Clinton said there was nothing marked classified on her e-mails . . . Was that true?” asked Rep. Trey Gowdy at one hearing. “That’s not true,” Comey replied.
On top of that, Comey said, FBI agents found 110 e-mails in 52 e-mail chains with “classified information at the time they were sent or received.” That includes eight chains deemed “top secret” and 36 “secret.”
