“For her to say today, ‘I never sent or received’ because, remember, earlier she said ‘I never sent,’ which allows you to do a Clintonian ‘what is, is’ and say well, ‘I wasn’t talking about receiving.’ She clearly, the I.G. had reported that this is several [emails], many of the absolutely highest top secret and it’s reminiscent of her reaction with the beginning of the Lewinsky scandal when they denied the truth and she said this is the vast right wing conspiracy,” Krauthammer argued.

“The go-to, initial answer always is to brazenly say a lie, ‘There was no relationship.’ And then for her to come in and to say you this is just imagination or cunning on the other part, or that malevolent conspiracy, she does it again in the face of an I.G. who clearly is not an agent of the Republicans,” Krauthammer said.

“But I don’t think it hurts her among Democrats. I think it hurts her among the general population, the general election, and, again, I think it all depends on the head of the FBI. Either he does a referral or he doesn’t. (RELATED: State Department Releases Clinton IT Guru Emails)
