Later that day, Clinton met with MSNBC’s “Meet the Press” host Chuck Todd where she reinterated her innocence, citing no wrong-doing on her behalf.
“Let me just repeat what I have repeated for many months now. I never received nor sent any material that was marked classified and there is a process for the review of material before it is released to the public and there were decisions made that material should be classified. I do call that retroactively classifying. So therefore it would not be publically released. But that doesn’t chance [sic] the fact as I’ve explained many times. … “I have said that I’m going to continue to put forth my record, what I have stood for, do everything I can to earn the trust of the voters of our country.”
