Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich criticized Hillary Clinton’s handling of her pneumonia diagnosis during a Tuesday morning interview on Fox News.
“First of all, it’s not a penchant for privacy,” the Georgia Republican told host Steve Doocy. “It’s a penchant for secrecy.”
“Deleting 33,000 emails isn’t a function of privacy, it’s a function of secrecy. Hillary Clinton lives in a world in which secrecy and dishonestly are the hallmarks.”
“Having her staff routinely lie about her health is [inaudible] to routinely lying about everything else. Why would they start telling the truth now?” he asked.
Gingrich noted that Clinton should heed Tom Brokaw’s advice and have a “very serious medical workup.”
“It’s not like yesterday was in isolation… It’s the duality that they have been secret about everything. And they have been stiffing the news media so now that even liberal reporters are getting irritated.”
