VIDEO: Obama Administration Defends Inspector General From Clinton Campaign Smears

Today at the State Department’s daily press briefing, spokesman Mark Toner was asked about the various Clinton campaign attacks on State Inspector General Steve Linick. This week, America Rising has called attention to how the Clinton campaign’s panic over the various investigations into Hillary Clinton has led campaign chair John Podesta to smear Linick.

When Toner was asked about the Clinton campaign’s allegations of “bias or unprofessionalism,” Toner clearly sided with the Inspector General over the Clinton campaign saying:

“I believe the Secretary has every confidence in the Inspector General’s ability to carry out his mission.”
