Clinton Camp Says Remain Calm While Capitol Hill Dems Enter Panic Mode

The Clinton campaign is in full-on damage control mode, issuing a memo yesterday trying to calm Democrats who are panicking about all the questions and controversies surrounding Hillary Clinton’s email server:

It doesn’t seem like that strategy is working very well, as Democrats on Capitol Hill are nearing full panic mode. Take a look at some of these quotes from Democrats:

“I’m not sure they completely understand the credibility they are losing, by the second,” said one Democratic strategist, who spoke on the condition of anonymity. “At some point this goes from being something you can rationalize away to something that becomes political cancer. And we are getting pretty close to the cancer stage, because this is starting to get ridiculous.”

“Look, this is a classic example of the cover-up being ten times worse than the so-called crime — though in this case there wasn’t a crime,” said another progressive strategist.

“The culture of secrecy that has surrounded the Clintons — understandably in some cases — has now yielded a situation where she did something that wasn’t necessary and looks nefarious.”

Seems like this is going well.
