Matthews: Hillary ‘Rigidly’ Controls Info, Has ‘Propensity’ To Admit To Truth ‘Only When the Truth Is Out In the Public Already’

On Monday’s broadcast of MSNBC’s “Hardball,” host Chris Matthews wondered if voters would accept Democratic presidential nominee former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s “propensity to release news only when releasing it had grown to be the only option” and “rolling disclosure, admitting to the truth only when the truth is out in the public already.”

Matthews said, “The other question yesterday’s incident raised can only be answered by the voters’ attention to the candidate. Are they willing to accept her instinct — Hillary Clinton’s instinct for rigidly controlling information about herself? Are they open, given her other strengths as a possible president, to live with her propensity to release news only when releasing it had grown to be the only option? Are they ready to accept what’s called in politics, rolling disclosure, admitting to the truth only when the truth is out in the public already. For example, when there’s an iPhone video airing that shows you being lifted into a car.”
