Hillary Clinton Finally Apologizes for Using Private Server

In an interview, that aired on Tuesday, Hillary Clinton finally decided to offer an apology for using a private email server while secretary of state. She told ABC News, “Even though it was allowed, I should have used two accounts. One for personal, one for work-related emails. That was a mistake. I’m sorry about that. I take responsibility.” The comments came just a day after Clinton told the Associated Press she did not need to apologize for her actions because “what I did was allowed.”

She had only previously apologized for the confusion caused by the issue. At the State Department's request, Clinton has turned over 55,000 pages of work-related emails last year, while the FBI has also taken possession of the server after Clinton resisted giving up until last month. Clinton went on to tell ABC, “As you might guess I’ve been around a while, lots of attacks, questions raised. I can survive it because I’m running to be president, to do what the country needs done. I believe the American people will respond to that.” After issuing her apology, RNC National Press Secretary Allison Moore said in a statement “The only thing Hillary Clinton regrets is that she got caught and is dropping in the polls, not the fact her secret email server left classified information exposed to the Russians and Chinese. Hillary Clinton’s reckless attempt to skirt government transparency laws put our national security at risk and shows she cannot be trusted in the White House.”

When asked how her mother has influenced her campaign, Clinton said “She told me every day, you got to get up and fight for what you believe in no matter how hard it is. And I don’t want to just fight for me. I mean I can have a perfectly fine life not being a president. I want to fight for all the people like my mother who cares who needs somebody in their corner.” In a recent Quinnipiac University poll, 61 percent of voters said they did not consider Clinton honest and trustworthy compared to 34 percent who did ascribe those qualities to her. In addition, the latest NBC News/Marist polls released Sunday showed Sen. Bernie Sanders with a 9-point lead over her in New Hampshire.
