Stephanopoulos GRILLS Hillary Clinton: Do You ACCEPT Report That ‘YOU BROKE State Department Rules’ [View all]

Who me?....I'm innocent.....I play by the rules just like this primary.....

George Stephanopoulos confronted Hillary Clinton this morning over whether she accepts the State Department IG report’s conclusion that her private email use “was not allowed [and] that you broke State Department rules.”

Clinton insisted that the report vindicates her, the rules weren’t clarified until after she left, and she has already said it was a mistake.

Stephanopoulos challenged her on the idea that she wasn’t unique in using email this way, because Colin Powell (for one) didn’t have a private server. He asked if she really doesn’t just “accept the conclusions of the report.”

Clinton said that “people around the government” knew what she was doing.
