Wallace Presses Wasserman Schultz: How Are Hillary Email Concerns 'Ludicrous'?
Debbie Wasserman Schultz has said the idea that Hillary Clinton could face any legal troubles over her private email server is “ludicrous.”
“How do you know that?” Chris Wallace asked the DNC chairwoman in a Fox News Sunday exclusive.
“I’m simply confident that – as the investigation continues, that Hillary Clinton has made it clear, and there are scores of individuals who ae associated with the federal government that have indicated that – it’s clear that she conducted herself completely legally,” said Wasserman Schultz.
“I think that at the end of the day, this is going to amount to nothing more than an investigation. When they take a close look, I think she’s going to be fine.”
Wallace pointed to the scale of the investigation, which involves tens of thousands of Clinton’s emails and dozens of FBI agents.
“There’s gotta be something there that they’re investigating. Are you saying it’s all a waste of time?” asked Wallace.
“I’m not commenting on it one way or another,” said Wasserman Schultz.
“Wait a minute, you have,” the Fox News Sunday host pointed out.
Wasserman Schultz said that other secretaries in the state have used private email accounts in the past.
“At the end of the day, this is a distraction,” she said.
