Tom Harkin: Clinton Email Apologist

Like many Clinton surrogates, Tom Harkin was not well served by the Clinton’s misinformation campaign on her private email server.

Speaking this year with CNN, Harkin misled the American people when he defended Clinton’s use of a private email server. Most damagingly, Harkin claimed that Clinton was careful with her handling of classified material:

“I know she went to the, again, she went to the ultimate degree to make sure that there weren’t any top secret kind of stuff going into these servers. Now if someone sent her something that was classified she could have not had any control over that.”

FBI Director James Comey demolished this talking point. We now know that Clinton both sent and received classified material. Hopefully, Harkin is able to make his convention free of the lies Clinton has told on the campaign trail.
