Todd: ‘Whole Bunch of Clinton Operatives’ Came to D.C to Calm Down Nervous Dems

Díaz-Balart: ‘Federal judge is now calling her use of private server “a violation of government guidelines”’

DÍAZ-BALART: “The headlines this morning aren't good for her. A federal judge is now calling her use of a private server a, ‘violation of government guidelines’. Meanwhile, several Democrats tell NBC News that they're getting jittery. It’s circling back to Vice President Joe Biden. A new poll showing a majority of Democrats want him to run, but the window to get in the race is closing quickly. With me now is NBC's political director and moderator of Meet the Press, Chuck Todd. Chuck, good to see you buddy.”

TODD: “How are you doing, Jose?”

DÍAZ-BALART: “Doing great. So listen, if you're Clinton’s strategist, what are you thinking and how do you go forward?”

TODD: “Well look, I think you’re thinking the way Brian Fallon is thinking right now, which is they're trying to make this into a partisan attack. They're trying to reassure Democrats behind the scenes, a whole bunch of Clinton operatives have flown from Brooklyn to D.C. to try to do some hand holding here, to try to calm things down, saying no, no, no, this is nothing but politics. They’ll get through this. But I tell you, last week, you had Democrats privately complaining. This week, they're going public. You had a senior senator from Florida Bill Nelson telling the Associated Press that he believes that the campaign hasn't handled this well. A long time member of Congress John Yarmuth from Kentucky, he is not somebody who regularly trolls other Democrats, he is the Democrat from Louisville, he went even further. He’s so concerned about this e-mail story. He went public saying, he thought it could upend her campaign.”
