NY Times’ Friedman: Hillary Has ‘No One to Blame But Herself’ for ‘Incredibly Stupid Thing’
Monday on CNN’s “New Day,” New York Times columnist Thomas Friedman sounded off on the renewed controversy swirling around Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton’s use of a private email server while secretary of state.
According to Friedman, the controversy to him seemed to be “exaggerated,” but she had no one to blame but herself.
“You know, the fact is and Chris alluded to this earlier — these Clinton emails — there’s the emails, the emails. Has anyone found any definitive proof that any foreign government has obtained these e-mails? Have they found any definitive proof that there is anything in it that imperils national security? So, you know, I think the whole thing has been exaggerated from the start. But let me say this: Hillary Clinton has no one else to blame but herself. Why in the world did she do this incredibly stupid thing?”
