McGinty Chairman Ed Rendell Says Clinton’s Email Controversy Is Hurting Her

Pennsylvania Senate candidate Katie McGinty’s campaign chairman, former Governor Ed Rendell, went on MSNBC this afternoon and blasted Hillary Clinton’s staff for trying to dismiss scrutiny of Clinton’s private email as “nonsense.”

Clinton communications director Jennifer Palmieri tried to brush off the criticism, saying:

“… this kind of nonsense comes with the territory of running for president.”

When asked if these serious questions and allegations could be brushed off, Rendell said no:

“No, not in the minds of the American voter. It certainly has hurt Hillary on the question of trust.”

Ouch! One can imagine the McGinty campaign will be getting a call from Team Clinton later today.
