Kaine Dodges On Whether Clinton Lied To Public

- August 7, 2016

Today, On NBC's Meet The Press, When Directly Asked, Kaine Dodged On Whether Clinton Lied To The American Public About Her Emails. NBC'S CHUCK TODD: "Let me ask you Senator Kaine, she seems to be conflating the truth, what she said to the FBI, and what she said to the American public, can you conclude here whether or not Secretary Clinton lied to the American public about sending and receiving classified emails?" SEN. TIM KAINE (D-VA): "Chuck, let me tell you this, I'm going to jump to the punch line. I heard Hillary Clinton say over and over again when I have been sitting next to her and watch her on TV that with respect to the e-mails, 'I made a mistake and I've learned something and I wouldn't do it again and I've heard her apologize.' I did hear that back and forth and I think Chris Wallace and Hillary were sort of talking past each other last week. She was saying what Director Comey acknowledged to be true, when she spoke to the FBI, when she was talking to the FBI, the FBI thought her answers in that setting were truthful. Chris might have been asking her a different question, but the bottom line is this, she made a mistake and she said over and over again I made a mistake and I've learned from it and I'm going to fix it and I apologize for it." TODD: "You know in fact, in an interview, you said she told you she's going to do it differently. What does that mean? Are you guys going to be more transparent? What does that mean?" KAINE: "I think the transparent -- the same thing she's said. Look, knowing what I know now, I wouldn't have done the private server in that way. She said it was a mistake. I'm not presumptuous enough to start thinking about how I'm going to do things after November, but I know that this is something that she's learned from and we're going to be real transparent, absolutely."
