Romney on Hillary’s Secret Email Account: This Is the ‘Clintons Behaving Badly’
RADDATZ (voice-over): "His take on Hillary Clinton and the e-mail uproar."
COURIC: "If you were in Hillary Clinton’s shoes right now, what would you do about this controversy surrounding her e-mails?"
ROMNEY: "Well, I think it’s hard for me to make that assessment, because I don’t know what she’s hidden, I don’t know what she has in her server at home, I don’t know she deleted. But it’s a mess." I mean what — what you see here is Clintons behaving badly. I mean we’ve seen this before. It’s always something with the Clintons, which is that they — they have rules which they describe before they get into something and then they decide they don’t have to follow their own rules. And — and that, I think, is going to be a real problem for her."
COURIC: "Plenty of other politicians, though, as you know, Governor, have used personal e-mail while in office. You did while you were governor of Massachusetts. So what is the difference and why is what she did more egregious?"
ROMNEY: "Well, because there are federal guidelines and federal rules that Hillary Clinton didn’t follow. There are no state of Massachusetts rules about using private e-mail. She was the Secretary of State, but she chose to say no, I’m not going to follow those rules and regulations. Now only am I going to have private e-mail, I’m going to put the server in my house so that there’s no way anyone could find out what was really said. That is something which is going way beyond the pale."
