Clinton Hits Trump, GOP for 'Height of Hypocrisy' Over Private Emails

Hillary Clinton on Monday reacted to the news that members of the Trump administration have been using private emails, calling it the "height of hypocrisy."

During an interview on SiriusXM with host Zerlina Maxwell, former director of progressive media for Hillary's failed presidential campaign, Clinton was responding only to Sunday's initial report that Jared Kushner, President Donald Trump's son-in-law, had used private email.

Clinton equated the private email use with her using a private email server while secretary of state, a fact Trump used to whip Clinton in the election and still throws out every once in a while in a call for the Justice Department to investigate.

"The hypocrisy of this administration, who knew there was no real scandal, who knew there was no basis for all their hyperventilating; Republican members of Congress who politicized the deaths in Benghazi, which I thought was outrageous," Clinton said on SiriusXM.

"Now we're finding with the latest revelations that they didn't mean any of it. It's just the height of hypocrisy. It's something that, if they were sincere about, I think you'd have Republican members of Congress calling for an investigation. I haven't heard that yet . . . I don't think we will," Clinton told Maxwell.

The interview was Clinton's latest to plug her new book, "What Happened," in which she devoted much to her private server scandal.

"I take responsibility for it. I say it was a dumb mistake but a dumber scandal. Our country had to go through it, which I regret," Clinton said.

Only after Clinton's interview did the report come out that in fact five other White House advisers also had been engaged in using private email.

"It just goes to the rank hypocrisy that this Trump campaign and now this Trump White House is engaged in," Clinton said.
