Appearing on “Morning Joe” Wednesday, former NSA Director Michael Hayden said he would have moved “heaven and earth” to get to the bottom of the situation if any foreign minister used a private email account like former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton did.
“I’d really go after an email account in which the official and unofficial emails were co-mingled,” he added. “So, you put a very juicy target out there.”
Hayden called Clinton’s handling of her emails was “stupid and dangerous” — not only to the U.S. and its national secrets, but dangerous to her as well.
“I don’t even think it was legal,” he said. “That has to be against policy.”
Hayden was clear that Clinton should have used a government server while serving in the government and was seemingly stunned that her staff allowed her to keep the private email and server.
