Ben Stein on Hillary: 'I Don't Believe Anything She Says'

Wednesday, 04 Mar 2015 05:08 PM

Hillary Clinton's blasé reaction to her email controversy is "odd" for a presumed presidential candidate, says Ben Stein, the actor, author, and former speechwriter for Presidents Richard Nixon and Gerald Ford.

"There is something abruptly odd about the fact that she simply said, 'Don't bother me with the fact that I violated federal law,'" Stein said Wednesday on "The Steve Malzberg Show" on Newsmax TV.

"It's odd, it's just odd that a presidential candidate [would] say, 'Don't bother me with law.'"

The New York Times reported on Monday that Clinton used a personal email address to conduct official government business during her stint as secretary of state, possibly violating rules that official correspondence be retained for historians.

But Clinton spokesman Nick Merrill responded: "Like secretaries of state before her, she used her own email account when engaging with any [State] Department officials. For government business, she emailed them on their department account, with every expectation that they would be retained. When the department asked former Secretaries last year for help ensuring their emails were in fact retained, we immediately said 'yes.'"

That's not good enough, believes Stein, who authors Newsmax Magazine's Dreemz column.

"I don't believe anything she says. I saw her on TV last night giving a speech to Emily's List and she is a dynamic, fantastic speaker and the Republicans are going to have to go a long, long way to beat her," he said.

"But clearly she has accomplished nothing. She traveled 1 million miles as secretary of state, accomplished nothing, left those poor people to die in agony in Benghazi.

"And there is something abruptly odd about the fact that she simply said, 'Don't bother me with the fact that I violated federal law.'"
