A new Fox News poll, released Friday, finds that a 58% majority thinks that Hillary Clinton “knowingly lied” when she declared in her March press conference at the United Nations that no emails on her private server contained classified information. Only 33% think there is “another explanation” for federal government investigators determining top secret information was in fact on Hillary’s email server.
Worse a 54% majority say Hillary put national security at risk by using her private email server.
Hillary shamefully tried to make light of her email fiasco during her appearance at the Democrats’ annual Wing Ding fundraising dinner Friday night in Clear Lake, Iowa:
“You may have seen that I recently launched a Snapchat account.
I love it. I love it. Those messages disappear all by themselves”
You can watch Hillary trying to turn her latest scandal into a joke in the following video clip:
It seems peculiar to make such a joke when five months ago Hillary audaciously proclaimed there was no classified material on her secret email server:
QUESTION: Were you ever — were you ever specifically briefed on the security implications of using — using your own email server and using your personal address to email with the president?
CLINTON: I did not email any classified material to anyone on my email. There is no classified material.
So I’m certainly well-aware of the classification requirements and did not send classified material.
The new Fox News poll had the usual partisan divide. Among Democrats, only 27% think Hillary lied and 29% say her actions put the country in danger, while 87% of Republicans say Hillary lied and 81% think she put the nation’s security at risk.
But 67% of the Independents say Hillary lied and 54% say Hillary put the U.S. at risk. A very bad sign for Hillary.
The Fox News poll was conducted August 11-13, 2105. The question about whether Clinton lied has a margin of error of plus or minus 3%. The question about whether Clinton put the nation’s security at risk has a margin of error of plus or minus 4%.
