So a year ago you said that it was undisputed as permitted use he private email server as secretary of state but this report makes it clear that. He did not comply with the department he now posse. Can you say today that you did not break the rules. You know this report makes clear that. Personal email use was the practice for other secretaries of state. And I know. That because it is well known it's pointed out in the report. But it was still a mistake and as I've said many times if I could go back I would do it differently. I know people have concerns about this I understand that but I think. Voters are going to be looking at the full picture what I have to offer my life and my service. And the full threat that Donald Trump offers our country. And I have confidence that they're going to be making the right decision. Just today it was reported that Donald Trump has clinched the number of delegates he needs to be. The Republican nominee that means an unqualified. Loose cane and it. Is within reach the most powerful job in the world. But this reports that that you quote have an obligation. To discuss using your personal email and make you didn't. So how can you really say that it was a lap was an error of judgment. Well it was allowed and the rules have been clarified since I left about the practice. Having said that YE have said many times it was a mistake and if I could go back aid would do it differently trump and Sanders an act talking about eating one now one would think that at. Well I'm looking forward to debating Donald Trump I am very much. Anxious to be on the debate stage with him to dry out the contrast to make the points about. His background his dangerous and divisive. Rhetoric and policy suggestions. Because I want the American people to have a very clear understanding of what the choices in this election which turn on them. Well at I understood they said that was a joke and I'm gonna look forward to debating down truck. You know you've talked about unity lately with the Democratic Party have you reached out to understand it having that conversation. Well we are certainly communicating between our two campaigns and I know that we're both trying to do our best in the upcoming contests but I have every reason to believe that after. June 7 we will begin. To unify the Democratic Party that's what I did after the 2000. And eight primary season was over and I'm. You know very sure that as senator Sanders has set himself he wants to do everything it can't defeat Donald Trump and we have to be unified. Democratic Party to do that are you willing to make any concessions policy flap from confessions under Sanders. What we're gonna go through the process we're going to be talking about everything that's what one does in preparing for a convention. But we're going to go into the convention unified we're gonna come out even more unified. And we're going to defeat Donald Trump in November.
