Mitchell: Hasn't 'Statute of Limitations' Run Out on Clinton Scandals?

'Wait a second, that's the '90s -- The statute of limitations on those scandals are long since passed'

Hillary-Shielding MSNBCer Mitchell: Hasn't 'Statute of Limitations' Run Out on Clinton Scandals?! (NewsBusters)

During her MSNBC show on Monday, host Andrea Mitchell tried to dismiss unflattering revelations about Bill and Hillary Clinton found in a series of documents from a close confidante: "...they're some of the same headlines we read fifteen years ago. The latest 'breaking news,' quote, excerpts from an archive belonging to a close friend of Hillary Clinton, Diane Blair....So what is new here?" [Listen to the audio or watch the video after the jump]

Mitchell directed that question to Time's Mark Halperin, who sneered: "...what we have so far, because we all need to go down and look at the original documents ourselves, are things out of context without corroboration, and it's not clear when she's – Diane Blair's quoting herself paraphrasing Hillary Clinton versus what Hillary Clinton said."
