Carson: Hillary's 'Poor Judgment' Under Fire in Email Probe

MSNBC's "Andrea Mitchell Reports"

By    |   Tuesday, 05 Jul 2016 01:26 PM

The real question behind Hillary Clinton's decision to use a private email server wasn't so much a matter of her facing criminal charges, but instead about whether Americans are "willing to place everything in the hands of somebody with such poor judgment," former GOP candidate Ben Carson said Tuesday.

"I think the thing to take away from this is that he was extremely critical of her judgment," Carson who now backs Donald Trump's campaign, told MSNBC's Andrea Mitchell in response to FBI Director James Comey's announcement that he would not recommend a case against Clinton or her staff. "He stated a high government official should know better. She was not only a government official, she was the secretary of state, and has been a senator twice."

In the business world, he continued, when there is a person who demonstrates poor judgment, the next step is not to promote them, but maybe give them some remedial training, and Clinton and her aides should have known better than to use a private email server.

Trump, shortly after Comey made his announcement, quickly tweeted:



However, Mitchell noted that Comey has been heralded by people in both parties for his fairness, and Carson thinks the "criminality" behind Clinton's actions are secondary to the issue of "extraordinarily poor judgment, and this is not the first instance."

"It would be a different thing if this were an isolated incident, but, you know, before any terrible disaster occurs, you usually have warning," said Carson.

Further, he said he thinks Trump should move on from his talk that Clinton should be behind bars, and concentrate more on her judgment and character issues.
