Obama Sees ‘Carelessness’ In Clinton’s Management Of Emails
During his first interview with Fox News Sunday since becoming President, Barack Obama spoke about the Hillary Clinton email scandal. The President continued to assert the former Secretary of State had not jeopardized national security.
“I continue to believe that she has not jeopardized America’s national security. Now what I’ve also said is that — and she has acknowledged — that there’s a carelessness, in terms of managing e-mails, that she has owned, and she recognizes,” the President said.
“But I also think it is important to keep this in perspective. This is somebody who has served her country for four years as secretary of state, and did an outstanding job,” he added.
“And no one has suggested that in some ways, as a consequence of how she’s handled e-mails, that that detracted from her excellent ability to carry out her duties.”

He also said Clinton would receive a fair investigation not tainted by politics.
“Nobody gets treated differently when it comes to the Justice Department,” Obama said. “Nobody is above the law.”
