Sanders Throws Hillary a Lifeline on E-mail Scandal

While Anderson Cooper interrogated Hillary Clinton tonight over her e-mail scandal, Senator Sanders came to her abrupt rescue, offering that the American people were sick of hearing about “your damn e-mails.” Clinton, clearly relieved, let loose with her signature laugh and replied, “Me too!” Here’s that exchange: 

COOPER: Isn’t it hard to call this just a partisan issue? There’s an FBI investigation and President Obama himself two days ago said this is a legitimate issue.

CLINTON: I never said it wasn’t legitimate. I said that I have answered all the questions, and I will be doing so again before this committee. I think it would be really unfair not to look at the entire picture. This committee has spent $4.5 million of taxpayer money and they said that they were trying to figure out what we could do better to protect our diplomats so something like Benghazi wouldn’t happen again. There were already seven committee reports about what to do. So I think it’s pretty clear what their obvious goal is.

COOPER: Thank you.

CLINTON: I’ll be there. I’ll answer their questions. But tonight I want to talk not about my e-mails but about what the American people want for the next president of the United States.

SANDERS: Let me say something that may not be great politics. I think the secretary is right. And that is that the American people are sick and tired of hearing about your damn e-mails.

CLINTON: Thank you. Me too!
