Jeff Zeleny: Hillary Clinton Took No Responsibility For Her Personal Server

CNN reporter Jeff Zeleny said Tuesday that Hillary Clinton took no responsibility for her personal server during a press conference that delved into the matter.

"She’s been defiant in her defense saying she did not break the law," Zeleny said. "But she took no responsibility on her own."

Clinton held a press conference with reporters where she answered a few questions on the saga that is dominating coverage of her presidential campaign. Clinton defended her decisions to have a private server and to use a personal email account for State Department business.

"No matter what anybody tries to say, the facts are stubborn," Clinton said. "What did I was legally permitted. Number one, first and foremost. Number two, I turned over out of an abundance of an attempt to be helpful, over anything that I thought was even vaguely related."

Many Democrats have become nervous about the investigation into Clinton.

"I talked to Democrats in Iowa, New Hampshire, they are anxious about this and they're wondering how far this is going to go," Zeleny said.

Clinton also made a poorly-received joke about the server, asking if a question about wiping it down referred to a "cloth," ABC reports:

Hillary Clinton joked to reporters Tuesday in Las Vegas about whether she "wiped" her email server clean before giving it to the FBI.

"What? Like with a cloth or something?" she asked, then laughed. "I don’t know how it works digitally at all."

Clinton maintained that she has turned over the server to investigators and gave them "every single thing" that was work-related. Federal investigators are looking into the security of the server and whether there was classified information in the emails from the private account she used while serving as secretary of state.

She made the quip during an exchange with Fox News’ Ed Henry.

This isn’t the first time Clinton has joked about her emails: the former Secretary of State also quipped about why she liked Snapchat at the Wing Ding Dinner in Iowa.
