Factcheck.org Joins In On Debunking Clinton’s Latest Email Claim

Earlier this week, America Rising called out Hillary Clinton for falsely claiming that she should be thanked for her emails being made public during an interview with Iowa Public Radio.

Today, Factcheck.org also called that claim false, saying her statement was “odd” and “factually inaccurate”:

Hillary Clinton gave an odd — and factually inaccurate — account of how the controversy over her email habits as secretary of state mushroomed into a public spectacle.

Clinton chalked it up to her pride in her work at the State Department and her desire for government transparency. “[I]f I had not asked for my emails all to be made public, none of this would have been in the public arena,” she said during an Aug. 17 radio interview in Iowa.

That’s pure spin.
