During an interview with Todd on Meet the Press, Clinton is asked if she decided to use a homebrew server to keep her emails out of the hands of Republicans, congressional investigators and those filing Freedom of Information Act requests.
Another conspiracy theory? It’s totally ridiculous…I have, as you’re rightly pointing out, been involved from the receiving side, in a lot of these accusations,’ Clinton continued. ‘In fact, as you might remember during the ’90s there were a lot of them. All of them turned out to be not true. That was the outcome.
Clinton tells Todd that despite earlier allegations, she was able to win voters over anyway when she ran for U.S. Senate in 2000.
They overlooked all of that and they looked at my record and they looked at what I would do for them and I was elected Senator, after going through years of this kind of back and forth,’ she said. ‘And it is regrettable. But it’s part of the system.
Clinton also says that the discrepancy in the Petraeus emails was due to a “transition period”. She also talks about her changing views on gay marriage and the Keystone XL pipeline.
