This is absolutely amazing to watch. State Department spokeswoman gives a vague answer to a very specific question on the Clinton Foundation and the reporters jump on her. Check it.
A newly released State Department email features Clinton Foundation-related requests, raising potential ethical issues about the Clinton Foundation during Hillary Clinton‘s four years as Secretary of State. So that’s what a bunch of reporters confronted State spokeswoman Elizabeth Trudeau about yesterday.
Three separate reporters––starting with NBC’s Abigail Williams––asked Trudeau about whether there was any improper relationship between State and the Clinton Foundation. Trudeau repeatedly downplayed the emails and said the department is “regularly in touch” with a wide range of people.
When AP’s Matt Lee was getting frustrated, he had this to say:
“I’m sorry, are you – am I not speaking English? Is this – I mean, is it coming across as a foreign – I’m not asking you if – no one is saying it’s not okay or it’s bad for the department to get a broad variety of input from different people. Asking – the question is whether or not you have determined that there was nothing improper here.”
