President Barack Obama said, on an interview on CBS’s 60 Minutes Sunday, that Clinton email server scandal is swollen by the Republican party, as presidential candidate’s use of a private server for official emails during her time as secretary of State was not a threat to national security.

However, Obama admitted that Clinton’s action was a mistake and recommended her to talk about the subject and answer all questions “to the satisfaction of the American public. And they can make their own judgement.”

No need to worry, America

“I can tell you that this is not a situation in which America’s national security was endangered. I think she’d be the first to acknowledge that maybe she could have handled the
original decision better and the disclosures more quickly”, said Obama, according to USA Today, on 60 Minutes show, where he talked about the Clinton email server scandal.

The president believes that Clinton wasn’t trying to “hide something or to squirrel away information.” and that actual and future government officials should be more careful when it comes to handling their personal information.

Another minus for the Republicans

Republicans have been highly critical of the potential security risks posed by the Clinton email server, with their concerns being increased by recent reports of attempted cyber attacks on her system in 2013 originating from China, South Korea and Germany.

In an interview given last month for ABC News, Clinton finally admitted that her decision to use the private server was indeed a mistake and that she was sorry and takes full
responsibility.

The Clinton email server may not have been a security threat, but for sure the scandal triggered by the Republicans affects the Democratic Party’s candidate public image. And while Trump, after the emigrants scandal, rises in polls,in this case we could see a different outcome for Hillary Clinton.
