Lanny Davis on CNN: Hillary Used Personal Email for ‘Convenience’

Lanny Davis has been one of Hillary Clinton‘s chief defenders in the ongoing controversy over her use of personal emails, being a longtime supporter of the Clintons, and he continued today on CNN, arguing she only did so for the sake of convenience.

Davis told Michael Smerconish there is no cover-up at play, the Republicans are saying lots of false things about the matter, and Clinton has already pledged to get all the emails out there.

Smerconish asked Davis the big question: why? Why would Clinton just never use an official government email address, which would automatically preserve her emails on government servers? Davis said it was for “convenience, but it’s not nefarious.”

He kept insisting Clinton can’t just pick and choose which emails to hand over and which to withhold, an argument many critics have made in the past few days.
