Cotton: 'Reckless' Hillary Had Emails on Executed Iran Scientist

Sen. Tom Cotton, R-Ark., told CBS's "Face the Nation" on Sunday that Hillary Clinton's emails on her private server referencing the nuclear scientist who was recently executed in Iran for treason show she is "reckless," "careless" and "not suited" to be president.

Cotton scoffed at horse-race politics amid a tough week for Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump and wants the conversation back on national security.

"What is ultimately going to matter in the long term is not who won or lost a week in the campaign, but whether the American people are safe," Cotton said. "I'm not going to comment on what [the executed scientist] may or may not have done for the United States government, but in the emails that were on Hillary Clinton's private server, there were conversations among her senior advisers about this gentleman.

"That goes to show just how reckless and careless her decision was to put that kind of highly classified information on a private server, and I think her judgment is not suited to keep this country safe," he said.

When pressed about Trump's own presidential credentials, Cotton showed full support for the GOP nominee despite some dissension in the ranks of an increasingly divided party this week.

"I'm confident if the American people elect Donald Trump," Cotton said, "and they elect a Republican president [so] that America will be safer and stronger in the world, our streets will be safer and our country will be more prosperous."
