President Barrack Obama has stated during his 60 minutes CBS interview on Sunday that Hillary Clinton’s mails do not pose national security problems for America.
Clinton who used her private email account for national issues while she was serving as Secretary of States has been under serious pressure lately when it was reported that her mail got hacked.
Obama said to Steve Kroft of CBS during the interview on Sunday that, “Clinton had made a mistake in handling her emails but added that he thinks the controversy been “ginned-up” in part because of politics.”
Kroft asked the president if he also shares the same belief as Clinton and former president, Bill Clinton that the Hillary Clinton mail saga wasn’t such a big deal. Obama didn’t comment on that directly but he added, “It is important for her to answer these questions to the satisfaction of the American public. And they can make their own judgment. I can tell you that this is not a situation in which America’s national security was endangered.”
Obama also didn’t comment when he was asked by Kroft if he would let his vice president get into the 2016 presidential race but he stated that he would let Joe take that decision himself.
“I don’t think there’s any politician at a national level — that has not thought about being the president,” Obama said to Kroft.
“And if you’re sitting right next to the president in every meeting and, you know — wrestling with these issues, I’m sure that for him he’s saying to himself, ‘I could do a really good job.'”
