Lanny Davis: Hillary's Email Mea Culpa Was 'Perfect'

By    |   Tuesday, 10 Mar 2015 06:12 PM

Hillary Clinton's defense of her use of a private email account and server for government business was "perfect," says powerful Washington attorney Lanny Davis, former special counsel to President Bill Clinton.

"Perfect. Have you ever heard me give you a one-word answer? There you have it," Davis said Tuesday on "The Steve Malzberg Show" on Newsmax TV.

At a press conference at the UN, the Democrats' presumed presidential candidate for 2016 said it would have been better if she had used a government email account and a separate mobile device as secretary of state. But she insisted most of her emails to government employees were sent via government addresses.

To Davis — President Clinton's special counsel from 1996 to 1998, and a member of the Privacy and Civil Liberties Oversight Board under President George W. Bush — the email flap is much ado about nothing.

"Of course she could've, would've, and should've, but who cares?" he told Steve Malzberg.

"She chose to just use one Blackberry with one account knowing full well that she'd have to turn everything over and that everybody would know about it.

"If the State Department or anyone else in the Congress who has subpoena power wants to see whether Hillary Clinton withheld official business emails on her server rather than emails about Chelsea's wedding dress or something personal, they have the right to ask."

Davis said he "can't imagine" that Clinton would say no to the State Department, if the agency wanted to check.

"The State Department can ask, Congressman Trey Gowdy [who is leading the Benghazi probe] can ask her. Plenty of people can ask her," he said.

"And if you're being even handed — I like and admire Jeb Bush, he's the strongest of all the Republicans — but I don't see you asking about all the [emails] he didn't turn over to the Florida public.

"He only turned over a fraction of his private email accounts and his private server … By the way, I'd like to see Congressman Gowdy's server."
