Watch Fox News Host Lose It On Clinton Surrogate

Fox News host calls B.S. on comparison of Hillary Clinton’s email handling with that of former Secretary of State Colin Powell on morning broadcast. It happened when Chris Wallace was interviewing Democratic Rep. Adam Schiff when the congressman stuck to his talking points, frustrating the pundit.

According to The Blaze:

“What we do know from the OIG report is that there were a couple of attempts to hack into the system that were unsuccessful,” Schiff said. “So we don’t know if there’s any evidence of the successful breach. But I do want to get back to the point that I wanted to finish and that Senator Lankford mentioned and that is the comparison to Secretary Powell is–”

That struck a nerve with Wallace, who had called Schiff out earlier in the interview for mentioning Powell’s email use and comparing it with Clinton’s.

“I’m sorry. Hillary Clinton’s running for president. Colin Powell is not running for president,” Wallace said, interrupting the congressman. “The rules in 2004 were completely different. They’re complete different guidelines. The guidelines were repeatedly strengthened in 2005, 2006 and 2011. Hillary Clinton was operating in a different world. Can we please stay to the issue of what Hillary Clinton did or didn’t do and not talk about Colin Powell?”

repeatedly brought up former Sec. of State Colin Powell, irritating Fox host Chris Wallace, who called the California congressman’s argument a red herring.

“What we do know from the OIG report is that there were a couple of attempts to hack into the system that were unsuccessful,” Schiff said. “So we don’t know if there’s any evidence of the successful breach. But I do want to get back to the point that I wanted to finish and that Senator Lankford mentioned and that is the comparison to Secretary Powell is–”

It’s interesting how many establishment politicians will respond with talking points even when the argument is inconceivable. Mrs. Clinton is fighting for more then the nomination, she’s fighting to avoid indictment and possible arrest.

So, it’s understandable that while Mrs. Clinton is the focus of the investigation, her rise or fall, brings with it, the success or failure of many associated with her. Many have a vested interested in this election, and Rep Schiff is one of them.

    I’m interested to know which of the public defenders of the former Secretary are up for re-election this cycle. My guess would be few, if any.

    Further, it would be worthwhile to ask whether these have actually read and signed off on those portions of USC 18 par. 793(f) which prohibit deliberate or negligent handling, storage and/or dissemination of “materials relating to national security”.

    “Have you, Senator/Representative __________ read the portions of U.S. Code governing handling of materials relating to national security; specifically section 18, paragraph 793 subsection (f)? Let’s read it together – it’s not a long section…”

    Watch them wave off like a nephew about to get a too-tight hug from Aunty…

    As usual, with any politician, in particular progressive marxist left wing loser politicians, it’s all about the “Do as I say, not as I do because it’s for your own good” Party Line.

    Colin Powell is a racist and certainly not a Patriot. Have you listened to him lately??? He does not love America…He is a Bush pick and most of them were very weak picks..
