NBC’s Andrea Mitchell: Clinton Is ‘Building in Deniability’ on E-mail Scandal

‘She is basically not dealing with the question that there is this continued drip, drip, drip, and she cannot get to the polices that she wants to talk about’

TODD: "We’ll just say it. Alright. I’ve done enough talking. Let’s start with the Hillary Clinton interview, your first reactions, Andrea."
MITCHELL: "Well, she is carefully saying that I’m not an IT person, I’m not technical, we know that about her. It was the IT people, it was the lawyers who decided which emails to delete, which to turn over. So she’s building in deniability her, her affect, her lack of, oh you know, an adversarial, contentious interview, striking in, you know, a different tone from Hillary Clinton. But she’s basically not dealing with the question that there is this continued drip, drip, drip. And she cannot get to the policies that she wants to talk about. She tries to pivot to it. She does in your interview later and tomorrow. But she can’t, this is all, you know, shadowing, overshadowing what she really wants to be talking about. And that is the reason why she is hurting in the polls."
