Tim Kaine Won’t Say Hillary Clinton Didn’t Lie About EmailGate [VIDEO]

Tim Kaine

On Sunday, NBC Meet the Press’s Chuck Todd asked Hillary Clinton’s running mate, Senator Tim Kaine , whether she lied to the American people to cover-up her EmailGate scandal.

Kaine, proving he’s nearly as slippery as Clinton, fails to answer the question that was asked, but goes to the already worn out ‘She admitted it was a mistake’ line.

He then seems to repeat Hillary’s “short-circuit” nonsense, that FOX’s Chris Wallace and Hillary were talking over each other and that caused the interview to go awry.

Here’s the exchange followed by the video below:

CHUCK TODD: “Let me ask you, Senator Kaine. She seems to be conflating the true– what she said to the F.B.I. and what she said to the American public. Can you conclude here whether or not Secretary Clinton lied to the American public about sending and receiving classified e-mails?”

TIM KAINE: “Chuck, let me just say this. I’m going to jump right to the punchline. I have heard Hillary Clinton say over and over again when I’ve been sitting next to her and when I’ve watched her on T.V. that, with respect to the e-mails, “I made a mistake, and I’ve learned something, and I wouldn’t do it again.” And I’ve heard her apologize.

I did hear that back and forth. And I think Chris Wallace and Hillary were sort of talking past each other last week. She was saying what Director Comey acknowledged to be true, that, when she spoke to the F.B.I., when she was talking to the F.B.I., the F.B.I. thought her answers in that setting were truthful. Chris might have been asking her a different question. But the bottom line is this. She made a mistake and she said over and over again, ‘I made a mistake, and I’ve learned from it, and I’m going to fix it, and I apologize for it.'”

Kaine, like Hillary, is trying desperately to deceive voters. I have a feeling that clip where Gowdy interviews FBI Director James Comey is going to be used over and over against Hillary Clinton.
