CNN’s John King stated on Wednesday that the hacked emails published by WikiLeaks show that Hillary Clinton’s closest confidants — who allegedly “love and support her” — really think the former secretary of state is “nuts and she’s secretive.”
“We know about this because of WikiLeaks,” King explained. “At issue, that moment when those outside of Clinton’s inner circle found out about her private email server at home.”
“This shows you that the angst even her campaign chairman wasn’t told until very late that she had a private email server in her Chappaqua, New York home when she was secretary of state. It shows you the secrecy — some would say paranoia — of Hillary Clinton and her inner circle.”
“If we can keep this from people until the last possible second and only release if we’re forced to release it. What does that tell us about a Clinton presidency?” he posed to CNN political reporter Nia-Malika Henderson.
“I mean that’s the big issue should she get elected to the Oval Office,” Henderson responded. “It’s terrible that her inner circle was talking about this in this way. More terrible I think if it had come earlier.”
“One of the things we saw in that 2008 campaign was different circles of power,” she continued. “It’s certainly new information about an old problem, an old issue that probably for most voters is baked into the cake.”
“These are people who love her,” King countered. “These are people who love her and support her saying she’s nuts and she’s secretive.”
