Hillary Clinton claims that Republicans are live in a “world of fantasy and hope” if they think that she will be led away in handcuffs as a result of her use of a private email server while secretary of state.
In an interview with NBC’s Matt Lauer on “Today” airing on Friday, Clinton said, “There is not even the remotest chance that it’s going to happen.”
Lauer said to Clinton that the Republicans he talks to “are clinging to the hope that … at some point between now and the election … that they will get to see Hillary Clinton in handcuffs.” (RELATED: Reports: Some Of Hillary Clinton’s Emails Are ‘Too Damaging’ To National Security To Release)
Cackling, Clinton replied, “Oh, my goodness.”
Lauer continued, “That there will be some kind of political perp walk based on your private email server.” (RELATED: Clinton’s Emails Contain ‘Operational Intelligence’ That Put Lives At Risk)
“Well, Matt, I know that they live in that world of fantasy and hope,” Clinton claimed “because they’ve got a mess on their hands on the Republican side. That is not going to happen. There is not even the remotest chance that it’s going to happen. But look, they’ve been after me, as I say, for 25 years. And they have said things about me repeatedly that have been proven to be not only false but kind of ridiculous.”
Lauer replied, “But you’re a lawyer. You’re a lawyer. So how do you see this ending? Do you think the FBI and the Justice Department write you a letter and say, ‘It was a misunderstanding, we’re sorry. Carry on’?”
“Well, we’re certainly going to carry on,” Clinton said, “It’s a security review. It is a security review, and there are lots of those that are conducted in our government all the time.” (VIDEO: Hillary STILL Won’t Use The Word ‘Investigation’ To Describe FBI’s Email Probe)
Clinton then said, “You don’t hear about most of them. You hear about this one because, you know, it does involve me. So that’s why it gets so much attention.”
“But I will tell you, sitting here in the Bronx, in this cafe, we’re moving forward. The Republicans’ fondest wishes will not be fulfilled,” Clinton said.
