Clinton TP: Bill Clinton-Appointed Judge Ruling On Email Scandal "Right Wing"

- February 23, 2016

When Asked About Today's Decision By A Federal Judge To Open The Door To Subpoenas Related To Clinton's Email Scandal, Robby Mook Blasted The Story As A "Right Wing" Attack Four Times, But Sidestepped The Fact That The Judge Was Appointed By Bill Clinton. CNN's JAKE TAPPER: "Robbie, I want to ask you about the news just now of a new development in this e-mail case, a judge in D.C. opening the door to future subpoenas for Clinton, for her longtime aide Huma Abedin, looking to get a hold of personal e-mails that were not turned over to the State Department. Do you have any response to this news?" CLINTON CAMPAIGN MANAGER ROBBIE MOOK: "Well, Jake, we all know that the right wing sees Hillary Clinton as the Democrats' best chance to hold on to the White House and continue to build on the progress that President Obama has made. That's why this right wing group filed this lawsuit. Of course, they're trying to subpoena people, of course they're trying to get this into the news. And we're just…" TAPPER: "But Robby this judge appointed by Bill Clinton, I believe." MOOK: "Well, it's the judge's decision to make. My point is this is promulgated by a right-wing group. Our campaign is accustomed to these right wing attacks and they're going to continue. And Hillary's going to keep talking about issues that she hears about in South Carolina and other states like how we help people afford college, how we bring health care premiums down. So we're going to stay focused on what Americans care about. Right wing will make their attacks, we'll stay focused." (CNN's " The Lead With Jake Tapper," 2/23/16)
