Hillary Clinton has brushed off an array of damaging reports about her email scandal as conspiracy theories which only heightens her untrustworthy image, MSNBC’s Morning Joe panel said Wednesday.
“Her problem is that she’s attacked the New York Times. This was a conspiracy from the New York Times, and now, you know, it’s the Inspector General from the intel agencies that doesn’t want her to get elected president,” host Joe Scarborough said. “Voters aren’t going to buy that.”
The Clinton campaign brushed off a report released Tuesday, which contained a letter from the Inspector General alleging that Clinton transmitted information deemed beyond top secret on her private email server.
“It is alarming that the intelligence community IG, working with Republicans in Congress, continues to selectively leak materials in order to resurface the same allegations and try to hurt Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign,” Clinton’s spokesman Brian Fallon wrote in a statement.
BBC anchor and panelist Katty Kay said that the email scandal raises questions about Clinton’s trustworthiness, but more importantly, it shows that she feels she is above the law.
