Amy Walter: E-mail Scandal Feed Narrative of ‘More of the Same’

‘This isn’t about the e-mails ... Hillary Clinton’s time at the State Department was her opportunity to show that she was above politics’

WALTER: “This isn't about the emails. I mean, honestly, your piece set this up as well, which is, Hillary Clinton’s time at the State Department was her opportunity to show that she was sort of above politics, that she was a different candidate from 2007; that she could be a change agent; that she could be a hefty candidate in 2016 with foreign policy experience that nobody else had.

Instead, whether we're talking about emails or whether we're talking about Foundation gifts from foreign companies or corporations, it feeds into this narrative that she isn’t change agent. It’s just more of the same and that is the bigger problem going foward.”
