Sen. Sessions: Clinton's Emails a 'Systemic Plan to Avoid Security'

(Fox News' "America's Newsroom")

Hillary Clinton's decision to use a private email server and the methods used to manage her email server were a "systemic plan to avoid security," Sen. Jeff Sessions said Wednesday, shortly after news broke of a State Department report finding the former secretary of state at fault for poorly managing email and other computer information.

"That is totally unacceptable, contrary to what she said she was doing," the Alabama Republican, who chairs the Senate Armed Service and National Security Advisory committees, told Fox News' "America's Newsroom" program.

"She said she was totally cooperating on this. This is a troubling event that casts credibility on Hillary Clinton. She said she was fully cooperating and this rejects that."

The State Department's review is for security, Sessions noted, pointing out that FBI Director James Comey has already said that his department's probe is an investigation, not a security review, as Clinton has called it.

"Unfortunately we are seeing too much smoke to suit me," Sessions told Fox News' Martha MacCallum.

As a secretary of state, he continued, Clinton had the responsibility to secure classified information and make sure it could not be accessed.

"Many experts say this computer system she used was vulnerable to hacking," said Sessions.

"In addition she said 'I made a mistake perhaps, but I'm going to cooperate fully.' This reveals she is not cooperating fully and it troubled me as a prosecutor: if you are innocent and don't have anything to hide why don't you come forward and cooperate and help bring this to a prompt conclusion?"
