Woodward: ‘Majority of the People Distrust’ Hillary

Sunday on CBS’s “Face The Nation,” Washington Post associate editor Bob Woodward said Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton email scandal isn’t about Trump, but that it is “about her” and that there are questions of distrust.

Woodward said, “Watergate was a domestic crime, clearly a crime. In this case it’s espionage, at least at this point. But I think he still has the look at what the e-mails tell us. And I’m be no means have I read them all, but I have read some. And it was one where Hillary Clinton’s chief speechwriter sent to Cheryl Mills, the chief of staff in the State Department saying, oh, Hillary’s changing her position on the Keystone pipeline, and let’s leak that so she won’t have to say it herself publicly. Now, this is this culture of concealment, the failure to have straight talk, and it’s quite likely Hillary Clinton’s going to win and be the next president. I think the question becomes for her and for voters: is she going to be able to govern? You talk to lots of people who are her supporters, and they say, you know, she may be elected, but she will be a weak president. And part of this is she’s got to face — this isn’t just about Trump, it’s about her. The majority of the people distrust her, and she needs to — she can’t walk away from that question.”
