Mitchell: I Couldn’t Ask Clinton Everything I Wanted to On Emails Out Of ‘Concern’ She Would ‘Cut It Off’

MSNBC host and NBC Chief Foreign Affairs Correspondent Andrea Mitchell stated that she “couldn’t ask everything that I did want to ask” about Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton’s emails during her interview on Friday because of “concern” that the campaign would “cut it off” on Tuesday’s broadcast of MSNBC’s “Morning Joe.”

Mitchell said, “one of the issues is, we were told we had a 15 minute interview. I asked more than 12 minutes on emails, before I felt, out of concern that they would, you know, cut it off, obviously, that I had to move on. So, I couldn’t ask everything that I did want to ask. But, I think we did get a good chance to ask a lot of questions and discover that she did not have an answer for why she did the personal server in the first place. We can infer a lot of things from her background, from the way she was introduced to national politics in the middle of all of the troubles that her husband was incurring during the New Hampshire primary in 1992. There are a lot of reasons why, perhaps, she did this, but she’s never answered it, herself. So we don’t have an explanation as to why choose only a personal server, not having the official one as well.”
