On Tuesday’s broadcast of MSNBC’s “Morning Joe,” Media Matters head David Brock took to the camera to answer questions about allegations that the Clinton Foundation took money from foreign countries in the forthcoming book “Clinton Cash” while Hillary Clinton was secretary of state.
Although Brock admitted he had not read the book, he downplayed its findings.
“I think what we’re going to be left with here is 100 percent innuendo,” Brock said.
“Morning Joe” panelists Mark Halperin, Willie Geist and Dorian Warren pressed Brock on the content of the book. Brock, however, deflected and insisted on discussing the book’s author, Peter Schweizer.
Show co-host Mika Brzezinski questioned Brock’s ability to debunk the allegations in the book with Clinton having deleted emails from her time at State Department that may or may not have offered additional information. Brock downplayed the emails as well and said the 50,000 she handed over that weren’t deleted and that may be made public may show shed on the allegations.
