In an interview with CNN, Democratic New Hampshire Governor Maggie Hassan was asked three times whether presidential candidate Hillary Clinton was honest and trustworthy and dodged the question each time.
“Do you think that she is honest and trustworthy?” asked CNN’s Manu Raju.
“I support Hillary Clinton for the presidency because her experience and her record demonstrate that she is qualified to hold the job,” said Hassan, who is also running for Senate this year.
“Do you think she is honest?” he tried again.
“She has, um, a critical, critical plan among others for making college more affordable,” Hassan responded.
“But do you think that she is trustworthy?” Raju tried for a third time.
“I think she has demonstrated a commitment always to something beyond herself, bigger than herself,” replied Hassan.
Hassan endorsed Clinton at a joint rally in December. After the interview, her campaign contacted CNN to clarify that yes, the governor does think that Clinton is trustworthy.
