Just hours before new documents shed light on the death of Sandra Bland, an African American woman who died in a Texas jail, Hillary Clinton weighed in on the case.

"I hope and expect that there will be a full investigation into this situation," Clinton said today. "It is also a tragic reminder of the ongoing systemic issues of race and justice in America that we must address with urgency. And we have to do more than talk - we have to take action."

Megyn Kelly said that this is a blatant attempt by the presidential candidate to insert herself in a news story and pander to her audience.

Dana Perino agreed it's obviously politically motivated, which she said doesn't comfort Bland's family at all.

"National leaders get in trouble when they jump the gun on local issues," Perino said, pointing to President Obama.
