Pelosi: ‘Too Much Is Being Made of’ Hillary Emails

Monday on “CBS This Morning,” House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) downplayed Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton’s potential misuse of her email communications while secretary of state.

Pelosi argued too much was being made out of this considering the number of things the nation’s top diplomat deals with overall.

“I think they shouldn’t be that concerned,” Pelosi said. “I think that the secretary of state deals with a large number of issues — 30,000 emails — we’re talking about a few that may have been marked ‘confidential.’ ‘Classified…’ and ‘secret’ and ‘highly sensitive’ is where it becomes more problematic.”

“The fact is that whatever it was that Hillary Clinton dealt with in that manner had no threat to our security,” she added. “And I think that too much has been made of this.”
