Hillary Clinton’s campaign chief Robby Mook was unwilling to deny on the record that the Clinton campaign had been involved in the multiple women accusing Donald Trump of inappropriate behavior.
“Have any of these women had any contact with your campaign or the DNC?” CNN’s Jake Tapper asked in an interview on State of the Union Sunday morning.
“These accusations are not coming from our campaign,” Mook replied, dodging the question.
That prompted Tapper to press further.
“But have they had any contact?” he asked.
“It’s not — not that I’m aware of,” Mook replied hesitantly. “I don’t know about any contact.”
As the election draws closer, several women have come forward claiming that Trump forced himself on them, despite their unwillingness to participate.
Mook called for Trump to apologize, noting that the Republican presidential nominee was spending time ahead of the election attacking the women who had come forward.
“His top priority right now is to attack these people who are coming, who are bringing up concerns,” Mook said. “We’re seeing it across the board. He should just apologize and move on.”
