TIME’s Duffy: Clintons ‘Have Always Had Trouble Cooperating’ With Email Investigations ‘From the Very Beginning’

On Friday’s broadcast of PBS’ “Washington Week,” TIME Magazine Executive Editor Michael Duffy stated, while commenting on Democratic presidential nominee former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s emails “the Clintons have always had trouble cooperating from the very beginning with these investigations. And that gives them a slightly shifty quality.”

Duffy said, “The thing that’s interesting about the emails now, is that there is just a steady, constant — keeping up is very hard. There were 14,000 new emails two weeks ago. There were 30 new emails about Benghazi out of that tranche. This week, none of them yet is in any way – had been shown to be damaging. But the constant need to keep up, and the discovery of new things is just a reminder, I think, for a lot of people, that the Clintons have always had trouble cooperating from the very beginning with these investigations. And that gives them a slightly shifty quality.”
