Amb. Bolton: 'You Can't Do What Hillary Did and Get Away With It'
On the heels of a scathing IG report on Hillary Clinton's use of a private email server, the State Department said the situation has been a "learning experience."
“I hate to say it, but it’s a learning experience,” Mark Toner told reporters.
“We have learned important lessons. We're not the only federal agency that is addressing these challenges."
The State Department audit found that Clinton's server violated federal records rules and that she never sought approval for the setup.
Meantime, a Newsweek report claims that counter-terrorism operations may have been compromised by Clinton's "sloppy" methods of communication.
Former U.N. Ambassador John Bolton reacted this morning on America's Newsroom, calling the report "devastating" for Clinton and Toner's remarks "mind-boggling."
Bolton said the IG report demonstrated that for over a year Clinton "has been lying about the permissibility of doing what she did."
"She never got permission from anybody. In fact, the longer it went on, the clearer it became [that] they couldn't ask permission because if they did two years into it, it would expose everything they'd done before," said Bolton.
He said that the political pundits who mimicked the former First Lady's "talking points" are probably realizing they were deceived.
"You just can't do what she did and get away with it," he concluded, adding that Clinton and her aides did not talk to the IG because they were "desperately afraid" of making false statements to a government official.
