Sen. Rand Paul blasted Hillary Clinton Sunday for her improper handling of classified information on a private email server.
"This is President Obama's Department of Justice saying that she may have revealed classified information," he said on CBS's "Face the Nation" Sunday. "This isn't a bunch of Republicans making a political point."
The Kentucky Republican noted Clinton may have put herself at risk by sending her own schedule back and forth on an unsecured email network.
In addition, Paul said she could have put Ambassador Chris Stevens at risk if she discussed via personal email the fact that he was located in Benghazi around the time of the Sept. 11, 2012 terror attack that claimed his life.
Clinton denied ever having sent or received classified information on her private server this week following a spate of media reports that two inspectors general had asked the Justice Department to open a criminal investigation into the matter.
"She doesn't obey the rules, but then she says, 'Oh, trust me, I didn't have any classified information' and 'trust me, I've given you all the emails,'" Paul said.
"It's a little bit hard to trust Hillary Clinton when she breaks every rule along the way, and then we're supposed to trust her to give us all of her emails," he added.
Clinton gave the State Department 55,000 printed pages of emails from her private server in December of last year before reportedly deleting the rest of the emails.
Her own staff members were thus able to select which email records they wanted the government to see and withhold documents that could have raised questions for her upcoming presidential campaign.
The House Select Committee on Benghazi has since revealed Clinton did indeed withhold some work-related emails that were related to the Benghazi attack.
