NBC’s “Meet the Press” Moderator Chuck Todd stated that Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton “appears more vulnerable than ever” on Wednesday’s broadcast of CNBC’s “Squawk Box.”
Todd said that he thinks Vice President Joe Biden is “the only realistic” on the Democratic side, and is “leaning yes.” But has to answer the question of whether he can raise the money to be competitive for an entire primary.
Todd added, “Look, I think, — she certainly, I think, appears more vulnerable than ever. I think the fact that you have three — the three letters here, that has made this email story sort of, go to another level of seriousness is FBI. This is no longer — she can’t just say this is a partisan witch-hunt by the House Republicans. The FBI is now investigating, regarding the classified info situation. And look, the best explanation, still questions her initial judgment of, why did she do this in the first place? And really was the only motivation to avoid Freedom of Information Act requests? It feels as if that’s the only reason she did this. So, look, I think this is a problem for her ongoing. I don’t know if it’s a way to stop her from getting the nomination.”
