CNN’s Jake Tapper called out Hillary Clinton for lying about emailing classified information, insisting, “You’re entitled to your own opinions, not to your own facts.”
In a video made by CNN and FactCheck.org, Tapper destroyed Clinton’s recent claim on “Fox News Sunday” that FBI Director James Comey’s testified that her statements about her private email server were true.Tapper said, “No. That is not true. According to her campaign aides, what Hillary Clinton was referring to was Director Comey testifying, ‘We have no basis to conclude she lied to the FBI.’ But Clinton’s comments to the FBI are different from what Chris Wallace was asking about, which were Clinton’s comments to the American people.” (RELATED: Hillary, Chris Wallace Spar Over Her Classified Emails [VIDEO])
Then Tapper replayed Comey’s congressional hearing testimony with Rep. Trey Gowdy, where the FBI director repeatedly debunked many of Clinton’s claims. (VIDEO: Comey Confirms Hillary Clinton Lied To The Public About Her Emails)
Gowdy said, “Secretary Clinton said did I not email any classified material to anyone on my email, there is no classified material. Was that true?”
“There was classified material emailed,” Comey responded.
Tapper then added, “Here’s what we know about Hillary Clinton’s emails. More than 2,000 of the 30,490 emails Clinton gave to the State Department in December 2014 did contain classified information.”
“Now most of it was classified retroactively, but 110 emails in 52 different email chains contained classified information that was classified at the time the emails were sent or received. Three of the emails included classified markings, but they were not marked properly.”
“Here’s the bottom line. Although Comey did testify that many of the emails contained information classified only retroactively, he did say some of the emails contained information that was classified at the time and Hillary Clinton had repeatedly told the public that none of the emails contained information that was classified in any way.”
“A reminder to all you politicians out there, you’re perfectly entitled to your own opinions, not to your own facts,” Tapper said.
