Chris Cillizza: Comey ‘Directly Disputed’ Multiple Claims By Hillary, ‘Creates A Number of Issues’ For Story She’s Told About Email


On Tuesday’s “Andrea Mitchell Reports,” Washington Post Reporter Chris Cillizza stated that FBI Director James Comey “directly disputed” multiple claims made by presumptive Democratic presidential nominee former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and his announcement “creates a number of issues for the story she’s been telling about her email server for the last 15 months.”

Cillizza said that while, “legally speaking, this is a great outcome for Hillary Clinton.” “In every other way, including the court of public opinion, Andrea, what James Comey did an hour plus ago was very tough.”

Cillizza continued, “He directly disputed the fact that she said she had never sent or received a classified email. He directly disputed the idea that it is possible that her account had been attacked. He directly disputed the idea that her lawyers and she had deleted only those emails that were personal, entirely personal in nature, saying they had found emails that contained sort of professional information in there as well. So, they’re trying to narrowcast this in their response to say she wasn’t indicted. And they’re exactly right. And that would have been an absolutely nuclear problem, had that happened for Hillary Clinton, but make no mistake, what James Comey did today creates a number of issues for the story she’s been telling about her email server for the last 15 months.”
