FBI Announcement Puts House Democrats In Tough Spot
For Democrats running in tight congressional races across the country, the FBI’s announcement that they’ve re-opened their Clinton investigation could not come at a worse time. Many of those Democrats are on record praising Clinton’s honesty and downplaying the FBI’s investigation into her private email server:
- In Virginia’s 10th, LuAnn Bennett praised Clinton when asked if the Democratic nominee was “ethically fit” to be president.
- In Maine’s 2nd: Emily Cain answered “Yes,” to a question on whether Hillary Clinton was a “person of good character.”
- In Colorado’s 6th, Morgan Carroll said that Clinton is trustworthy.
- In Texas’s 23rd, Pete Gallego has downplayed Clinton’s email scandal.
- In Nevada’s 3rd, Jacky Rosen dodged questions about Clinton’s honesty multiple times.
- In Nevada’s 4th, Ruben Kihuen has said that he’s not concerned with the FBI investigation into Clinton’s email server.
- In Iowa’s 3rd, Jim Mowrer has said that Clinton’s email scandal has been “blown way out of proportion.”
- In Florida’s 18th, on the same day that Randy Perkins said Clinton was honest, the FBI announced they were re-opening their investigation into Clinton.
- In Pennsylvania’s 8th, Steve Santarsiero said that Clinton’s email scandal was “not a reason to distrust her.”
- In New York’s 1st, Anna Throne-Holst dodged questions about Clinton’s honesty multiple times.
Every Democrat running in 2016 needs to be asked about these shocking, new revelations. Given the above statements, a lot of backtracking is about to ensue.
