If Hillary Clinton were in the United States military, she’d be wearing a bright orange jumpsuit and locked up behind bars, according to former Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld.
The 83-year-old Rumsfeld said Hillary Clinton wouldn’t have gotten away so squeaky clean for her decisions and actions, pointing directly to the classified material Clinton kept on a private server.
Clinton has come under fire for potentially exposing state secrets and potentially exposing damaging information if it fell into the wrong hands.
“I personally believe that if she were a sergeant in the Army or a yeoman in the Navy, she’d probably be indicted,” Rumsfeld said. “It’s just inexcusable. You just can’t do that!”
Rumsfeld went on to add, “other countries will be less likely to share information with us” because of her carelessness and recklessness, and that her actions will have lasting negative impact on America.
“I couldn’t support Mrs. Clinton. What she has done with classified information I think is inexcusable and puts at risk people’s lives [and] not just ours.”
Mr. Rumsfeld also took issue with how Hillary conducted herself in regards to the families who lost loved ones in the 2012 terrorist attack in Benghazi, Libya.
Hillary publicly claimed a YouTube video was responsible for the attack, while privately telling the victims’ families it was a jihadist attack.
When a mother of one of the Americans killed called her out for making contradictory statements, Hillary defended herself and went so far as to call the mother a liar.
“When Mrs. Clinton said to those people, the parents of the people killed, that it was the video, when she knew completely, certainly, that it wasn’t. I mean, I’m very uncomfortable with someone like that.”
Rumsfeld and Hillary have a long history of exchanging blows throughout their careers.
Rumsfeld was responsible for leading U.S. involvement with the Iraq war, which Hillary originally supported and voted to fund – until she decided to reverse course and criticize the war years later.
Numerous scandals and widespread criticism of Hillary as being an unreliable leader have caused her approval ratings to plummet.
Maybe Hillary’s history of lies, cover-ups, and flip-flopping are catching up to her.
