Krauthammer’s Take: Clinton Had Her Server to Hide ‘Rank Corruption of the Clinton Foundation’

With the amount of e-mails now leaked, Charles Krauthammer thinks that the Clinton Foundation is the ultimate reason that Hillary Clinton created her private e-mail server:

Look, this brings us back full-circle to where we started. The original question was: “Why does she have a private e-mail?” She said convenience — obviously, that was ridiculous, she’s carrying around a whole lot of devices — it was obvious she was hiding something. Think about it: She set it up in 2009, before becoming secretary of state. So she anticipated having exchanges that she would not want anyone to see.

We have been asking ourselves on this set for a year almost, “What exactly didn’t she want people to see?” Well now we know. As we speculated, the most plausible explanation was the rank corruption of the Clinton Foundation and its corrupt — I don’t know if it’s illegal, but corrupt relationship with the State Department. And her only defense, as we saw earlier, the Democrats are saying, “Well, there was nothing that she did — as in the Raytheon case — that was corrupted by donations.” You can believe that if you want, there’s a reason that people give donations in large amounts. That’s to influence the outcome of decisions. We are getting unfolding to us exactly what she anticipated having to hide. And it’s really dirty business.
