Wallace Challenges Robby Mook on WikiLeaks: Trump Tax Return Was ‘Stolen’ and You Didn’t Care

mook-wallaceHillary Clinton campaign manager Robby Mook objected today to everyone focusing so much on “stolen” emails. But Chris Wallace noticed some hypocrisy there…

“The Trump tax returns,” Wallace said, “were stolen as well when they were mailed to The New York Times. You guys didn’t object to that. In fact, you jumped all over it.”

Mook immediately said they don’t know where those returns came from. Wallace insisted they were “clearly stolen” and said if it’s fair to look at the “fruits of that theft,” then it’s only fair to do the same with the Wikileaks Podesta emails.

Mook insisted that “this is the conversation the Russians want us to be having” while saying that they really can’t verify what’s shown in the emails.

Wallace somewhat wryly observed, “I promise you, if these were not true, you’d tell us.”
