During a conversation on CNN about investigating Hillary Clinton‘s use of a private email server, Trump campaign senior adviser Barry Bennett casually tossed out waterboarding.
“She has continued to lie about it,” Bennett told CNN’s Kate Bolduan. “She told us the lawyers signed off on it. The Inspector General said that’s not true. She said she would cooperate with all the investigations. She stonewalled the IG and now everyone’s taken the fifth. You couldn’t get the truth out of Hillary if you waterboarded her!”
“What?” a visibly shocked Bolduan replied.
“You couldn’t get the truth out of her with a waterboard,” he repeated.
“And you brought in waterboarding!” Bolduan said.
On the campaign trail, Trump has spoken many of times of his willingness to use waterboarding and techniques “worse than waterboarding”. His son once dismissed waterboarding as no worse than frat house antics.
