Bret Challenges Clinton on Emails: 'Was Your Claim About Classified Info Inaccurate?'
Hillary Clinton was challenged by Bret Baier on her private email server during a live "Special Report" town hall in Detroit.
Clinton repeated that she never sent or received anything "marked classified" on her private server while she was secretary of state.
Baier noted that the State Department has since said that 22 of her emails contained "top-secret" information while 2,100 were labeled "confidential."
He pointed out that last March, Clinton stated that there was "no classified material" in her emails.
"Can we say definitively that that statement is not accurate?" he asked.
"No," she answered, maintaining that the State Department decides what is classified, reiterating "nothing I sent or received was marked classified."
She argued that some of her emails were retroactively deemed to contain sensitive information.
Clinton also called the controversy “absurd,” predicting that the American people will agree with her after all of the emails are released.
“It wasn’t the best choice to use a personal email. It was a mistake. However, I am not alone in that,” she said, bringing up former Secretary of State Colin Powell.
