Raddatz Grills Kaine on Clinton Emails: Don’t Americans ‘Deserve a Better Explanation’?

raddatz kaineABC’s Martha Raddatz really grilled Tim Kaine today on why his running mate isn’t offering more of an explanation of her emails beyond “I made a mistake,” given new information released by the FBI.

Raddatz asked, “Don’t the American people deserve a better explanation?”

Kaine insisted they have, said the notes clearly show why the FBI did not have a case to prosecute, and repeated the claim that Clinton used only one device. (The FBI notes confirm she used quite a number of devices.)

Raddatz pointed to how little Americans trust Clinton and why “shouldn’t she be answering questions on this.” Twice in a row Kaine changed the subject to Donald Trump asking Russia to find Clinton’s missing emails, suggested a connection to the DNC leak, and invoked Watergate.

Raddatz also questioned whether Clinton could even really identify proper classification markings based on revelations in the notes.
