Gov. Chris Christie slammed former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton for using a private email address despite evidence that Christie himself used two private email addresses. The New Jersey governor and GOP presidential candidate is citing executive privilege to block the release of any messages from those accounts to government officials. Though there is evidence that Christie used one private email address for government business, he declared in a radio interview that Clinton must be "held accountable" for doing the same with her own private email address.
"She did all of her business through a private server in her basement," Christie said during an appearance on "The Hugh Hewitt Show" posted to YouTube Monday. "The Clintons always want to run away from their conduct. That's what Mrs. Clinton has done her whole career, and she'll try to run away from this one."
While keeping his own private email accounts secret, Christie told Hewitt he is best-positioned to spotlight Clinton's use of a private email address in the general election.
"The big question for Republican primary voters is: Who do you want prosecuting Hillary Clinton on that stage next fall?" Christie said. "Seems to me the only federal prosecutor on the stage is the right person to be prosecuting that case. I will not let her wriggle away from the facts. She will have to be held accountable for them, and that's exactly what I intend to do next fall."
