Hillary Puzzled by Server Scandal, Says She 'Never' Hears About it at Town Halls

Hillary Clinton didn't have much time to pet cattle at the Iowa State Fair before she was confronted with questions about her use of a private email server as Secretary of State. After former Sen. Tom Harkin (D-Iowa) introduced Hillary with a glowing 2016 endorsement, she stepped to the mic to answer whether or not she felt any personal responsibility about the server scandal.

"I've said previously, I used a single account for convenience," Clinton remarked. "Obviously, these years later, it doesn't look that convenient."

She then doubled down on her declaration that she never sent nor received classified emails on her private server and seemed downright puzzled that the press were still talking about it. Apparently she doesn't hear a peep about it on the campaign trail.

"We'll see how this plays out," she said. "It's not anything that people talk to me about as I travel around the country. It is never raised in my town halls, it is never raised in my other meetings with people."

Hillary is exasperated over these same tired old questions.

Just a thought, but maybe some Americans are concerned about her email use because they may contain information connected to the tragedy in Benghazi? You know, that same tragedy she claims Republicans are using to try and score political points? We lost four Americans on Sept. 11, 2012. We deserve some answers. 

As for why Hillary doesn't seem to hear about her "emailgate" around ordinary folk, her recent behavior suggests she may just be tuning it out. Friday night, Hillary even made light of the server scandal by quipping she started a Snapchat account and she loves that 'those messages disappear all by themselves.'

Glad to see she's taking the matter seriously.
