“I Don’t Think She’s Trustworthy.” America’s Millennials on Hillary Clinton’s Integrity
By Neil A. Carousso
Millennials, defined as individuals who reach adulthood around year 2000, have been closely watching the 2016 presidential campaigns. Many were mobilized by Senator Bernie Sanders’ (I-VT) message of a “future to believe in” while not trusting now Presumptive Democratic Presidential Nominee Hillary Clinton because of her history taking large sums of money from corporations and countries for the Clinton Foundation and for speeches.
On July 5, FBI Director Jim Comey laid out a scathing report of the agency’s investigation of Hillary Clinton’s private e-mail server, actually multiple servers, which Comey revealed, to the American people.
“One hundred and ten emails in 52 e-mail chains have been determined by the owning agency to have contained classified information at the time they were sent or received,” Comey said in front of a national television audience. “Eight of those chains contained information.”
Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton has denied using a private e-mail server multiple times including a March 10 press conference, two Democratic presidential debates and under oath in front of the U.S. House Select Committee on Benghazi on October 22, 2015
“There was nothing marked classified on my e-mails, either sent or received,” Clinton said under oath in response to questioning from Representative Jim Jordan (R-OH).
Clinton had also been caught in hostile questioning from Rep. Jordan regarding her blaming of the September 11, 2012 Benghazi attack on a video when she told her daughter, Chelsea, and the Egyptian Prime Minister Hisham Kandil within 24 hours that it was, in fact, a terrorist attack. Four Americans including U.S. Ambassador J. Christopher Stevens died in Benghazi, Libya.
Millennials react to the campaign, specifically discuss whether or not they trust Mrs. Clinton. A recent New York Times/CBS News Poll indicates Clinton’s “not honest and untrustworthy” numbers are at an all-time high 67 percent, up 5 percent from last month.
