Obama adviser Greg Craig, a former counsel to Clinton’s husband, tells National Journal she is “misleading the American public” about her experience as first lady.

“She did not sit in on national security meetings. She did not have a security clearance. She did not attend meetings in the situation room. She conducted no negotiations. She did not manage any part of the national security bureaucracy.”

“Senator Clinton and her supporters have in serious ways overstated, if not grossly exaggerated, the nature of her experience.”
