When FBI files of Hillary’s investigation were released, they made reference to “Hillary’s cover-up operation” and that is exactly what was asked of Robby Mook during CNN’s “State of the Union” during a recent appearance. It seems like a fair question considering the explosive nature of the files.
According to The Blaze:
CNN anchor Jake Tapper, who hosts the Sunday talk show, challenged Mook during an interview Sunday about a comment a former Clinton IT aide made in December 2014. That aide was an employee of the Platte River Network, which was the company tasked with managing Clinton’s private email server after her departure from the State Department.
According to FBI documents released late Friday, the employee “joked” about the “Hillary cover-up operation” after he was asked to setup a system that automatically deleted emails from the server after 60 days.
“This IT director thought he was covering something up, no?” Tapper asked.
But instead of addressing the question, Mook told Tapper it’s important to “look at the facts,” saying that despite a thorough investigation into Clinton’s email practices, the FBI decided earlier this year not to bring criminal charges against the former secretary of state or any of her aides.
“The FBI did a comprehensive and deep investigation into this and at the conclusion of that, FBI director Comey came out and said to the world that there was no case here,” Mook said.
“So what’s the ‘Hillary cover up operation’ the IT worker was referring to?” Tapper shot back.
Mook again dodged Tapper’s line of inquiry, this time charging that “Republicans on the House side [of Congress] are selectively leaking documents for the purpose of making Hillary look bad.”
“We’ve asked the FBI to release all information that they’ve shared with the Republicans so we can get the full picture,” he added. “But I would trust the career professionals at the FBI and the Justice Department who looked into this matter, concluded there was no case than I would Republicans who are selectively leaking information.”
What’s interesting is that the campaign manager is unwilling to answer basic questions about an admitted ‘Hillary cover-up operation.’ Imagine if an email from one of Donald Trump’s team had an email leaked with “Donald’s cover up operation?” It’s fair to say the press would go crazy and call with Congressional committee to investigate.
But, for Hillary and her team, they seem to expect a pass from the media and certainly the press.
