Fox News contributor Charles Krauthammer affirmed on Thursday night’s Special Report with Bret Baier that former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s email scandal is just a replay of the 1990’s–and she will never “clear the air” because she will incriminate herself. Krauthammer explained that there are two reasons why Mrs. Clinton cannot hold a press conference,
This is not a new story. And that’s the reason the Democrats are so dismayed. This is sort of, you know, the replay of the game of the 1990’s. And the reason that she can’t do a Christie and do a two-hour press conference where she clears the air is two reasons. Number one, she’s a Clinton and what the Clintons do is never clear the air. They spend the first month or two [using] surrogates, the machine, attacking the accusers, as in the Lewinsky scandal. And then later, if you have to confess, if you are caught red-handed, you admit it.
The second reason is if she has such a press conference, she will be asked, ‘You turned over 55,000 emails. How many are left on your server?’ She will either say, ‘I don’t know’ or ‘I’ll get back to you,’ and then she is going to have to answer, ‘Why don’t you turn them over?,’ to which there is no answer.
Of course, the answer is, ‘Because I want to hide them, I want to sift them, I want to make sure the ones that are incriminating are kept back.’ She can’t do it because the answers to the questions, if remotely honest, are self-indicting.
