Obama: Hillary Made Email ‘Mistake’


obamaPresident Obama called Hillary Clinton’s use of a private email server “a mistake” during an interview on CBS’s 60 Minutes on Sunday, but dismissed it as a threat to national security and said it was instead “ginned up” into an attack by Republicans looking to mar her presidential campaign.

Obama said Clinton “could have handled the original decision better” and moved quicker to disclose work-related emails that were kept on her private server.
