Potential Hillary VP Pick on Clinton/Lynch Meeting: ‘I Wish It Hadn’t Happened’

Senator Sherrod Brown, a Democrat considered to be one of the names on Hillary Clinton‘s VP shortlist, today said that the Bill ClintonLoretta Lynch meeting was “unfortunate.”

Democrats have been privately––and publicly, to a lesser extent––venting about the horrible optics, especially when it looks like the investigation endgame is coming.

On ABC’s This Week this morning, Martha Raddatz asked if the meeting calls the integrity of the investigation into question. He said no.

But then Brown went on to say, “I was unfortunate, you’ve all made that case… I wish it hadn’t happened, but I think the FBI will do its job.”

He expressed confidence the FBI will do its job independently of political machinations.
