A defiant Hillary Clinton granted CNN her first national interview since the release of her book, Hard Choices, more than a year ago. Throughout the interview, Hillary was defensive, and seemed annoyed that she would be questioned about her emails and her trustworthiness.
So what did she do? Lie continuously.
Here’s a list of her top 5 lies in the CNN interview:
1. “I Never Had A Subpoena” (for her emails)
Benghazi Committee Chairman Gowdy issued the following statement immediately after the interview, contradicting Mrs. Clinton:
“Secretary Clinton…was personally subpoenaed the moment the Benghazi Committee became aware of her exclusive use of personal email and a server…”
The subpoena was issued on March 4, 2015. In fact, Hillary’s lawyer, David Kendall, acknowledged the subpoena in a letter to Chairman Gowdy asking for an extension of time until March 27, 2015. Gowdy granted the extension of time in a letter dated March 19, 2015.

On March 27, 2015, Kendall responded to the subpoena and told the Committee that Clinton had turned over all relevant emails to the State Department and “wiped her server clean.”
Her statement was a big lie.
2. “I Had One Device” (for convenience)
The emails released by the State Dept. clearly show that Clinton used two devices — both a Blackberry and an iPad for her emails. Several of the emails indicate “Sent from my iPad.”

So the “convenience” story just doesn’t fly. Another lie.
3. “Colin Powell Admitted He Did The Same Thing”
Colin Powell did not have a personal email server in his house. And he certainly never admitted that he did. No way.
Another Hillary whopper!
4. “I Didn’t Have To Turn Over Anything”
She certainly did.
The Wall Street Journal reported that in 2009, “the National Archives and Records Administration issued regulations that said agencies allowing employees to do official business on unofficial email accounts had to ensure that any records sent on private email systems are preserved in the appropriate agency record-keeping system.”
This covered Hillary Clinton. She claims that because she sent emails to people in the government email system, all is preserved. But we don’t know who she sent mail to. And, as we have seen from the released emails, she sent plenty to people outside the government, like the ubiquitous Sidney Blumenthal.
The records showed that she didn’t turn over at least 15 emails to Blumenthal that showed that she asked him to continue sending information to her.
5. “People Should And Do Trust Me”
They don’t and they shouldn’t.
A recent CNN poll showed that 57% of the voters believe that Hillary is not honest and trustworthy.
And her obvious and continuous lies keep feeding that perception.
She says it’s all the fault of the Republicans. Just like the Monica Lewinsky scandal.
Hillary, we have your number — and we definitely don’t trust you.
