Clinton Backs 9/11 Bill Minutes After Saying She Didn’t Know Enough

- April 17, 2016

Earlier Today, Clinton Claimed She Knew Nothing About Sen. Chuck Schumer's 9/11 Bill And Thus Was Unable To Provide An Opinion On The Legislation. ABC'S GEORGE STEPHANOPOULOS: "Your senior senator here in New York, Chuck Schumer, sponsored a bill backed by the 9-11 families that would give them the right to sue state sponsors of terror in federal court. Now, it's opposed by the Obama administration. They say it's going to expose the U.S. and its officials to retaliation. So who's right here, Senator Schumer or President Obama?" CLINTON: "I don't really know about that, George. I'll have to look into it. Obviously, we've got to make anyone who participates in or supports terrorism pay a price, and we also have to be aware of any consequences that might affect Americans, either military or civilian or our nation. So, I'm not able to take a position on something…" STEPHANOPOULOS: "You don't know about this issue? It's been around for several years?" CLINTON: "Well, I know it's, I know there's been an issue about it for quite some time. I don't know about the specific legislation that you're referring to. But obviously, I'll look into it." (ABC's "This Week," 4/17/16)

  • Clinton Went On To Boast About The Thoroughness She Puts Into Learning About A Given Issue: "Unlike Some People, I Actually Do Try To Learn What's At The Core Of Any Question Before I Offer An Opinion." ABC'S GEORGE STEPHANOPOULOS: "Ok, so but you're not prepared to say now if you support it or oppose it?" CLINTON: "I can't. I haven't studied it. Unlike some people, I actually do try to learn what's at the core of any question before I offer an opinion, because you know, it's not enough to say what's wrong. I think you have a responsibility to say how you're going to fix it." (ABC's "This Week," 4/17/16)
