Former President Barack Obama thought his former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s handling of the scandal surrounding her use of a private email server was “political malpractice,” a new book reveals.
The Hill’s Amie Parnes and Sidewire’s Jonathan Allen report in “Shattered: Inside Hillary Clinton’s Doomed Campaign” that while Obama campaigned for Clinton for president in public, he kept his concerns over the scandal private.
“He couldn’t understand what possessed Hillary to set up the private e-mail server, and her handling of the scandal — obfuscate, deny, and evade — amounted to political malpractice,” the authors wrote.
Clinton’s actions, according to Parnes and Allen, reminded Obama of some of the “qualities” that helped him win the Democratic primary in 2008.
