Sanders On Clinton: The American People Are Sick And Tired Of Talking About Your Damn Emails (Video)

In the first primary debate for the 2016 presidency, moderator Anderson Cooper wasted no time asking about the never-ending story of Hillary Clinton’s use of personal email saved to a private server while serving as Secretary of State. In particular, Cooper questioned Clinton’s ethics and the perception American voters have concerning her trustworthiness and protection of American interests. In response, Clinton said:

“I’ve taken responsibility for it, I did say it was a mistake.”

Republicans have been obsessed from the second the New York Times revealed Clinton conducted government business using her personal email and had saved the documents to a private server. From this, the GOP pounced and put together a committee to investigate her emails, an investigation made of majority Republicans, of course.

This is not the only investigation Republicans have elicited on Clinton. They’re also knee-deep in their eighth investigation on the Benghazi attack.

Democrats have been extremely frustrated with Republicans and all of their investigations of Clinton — considering Republicans have found nothing, ABSOLUTELY NOTHING. Additionally, Democrats are frustrated by the lack of transparency and not being informed about witness interviews, and they are reeling that Republicans have been selectively releasing information with a specific narrative in mind — paint Clinton in a negative light and assert guilt, lack of proof aside.

Like the Democratic Party, Clinton is convinced the investigations are nothing more than witch-hunts, a political partisan poison.

And truth always reveals itself: On September 30, House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy admitted the Benghazi investigations were, in fact, an attempt to damage Hillary Clinton in the polls.

And let me give you one example. Everybody thought Hillary Clinton was unbeatable, right? But we put together a Benghazi special committee, a select committee. What are her numbers today? Her numbers are dropping. Why? Because she’s un-trustable. But no one would have known any of that had happened had we not…”  — Rep. Kevin McCarthy.

Damn, that was a slip up. No Speaker of the House for you, McCarthy. 

Anderson Cooper, not satisfied by Clinton’s response, pivoted back, asserting Clinton’s narrative focus on the calamity of Rep. Kevin McCarthy’s gaffe was not a form of her taking responsibility or much less the issue seriously. Cooper noted the FBI investigation of her emails and President Obama’s statement that her use of personal emails while in office was a mistake, and investigations were a necessity. To this, Clinton said:

I never said it wasn’t legitimate. I’ve said I’ve answered all the questions. I think it would be really unfair not to look at the entire picture.”

Various pollsters have revealed Clinton’s favorability is on the decline. Still, Clinton believes the American voters are tired of Republicans lust for scandal and wanting to take another Clinton down. In the debate, she iterated Americans want resolutions to the issues that they face — like college debt, income inequality, raising their children, and gun violence. Americans are not focused on her emails, nor are they nitpicking and lusting over daily email communications, which were mostly menial conversations.

Americans face real issues and Clinton believes this is what should be the focus: Americans. Senator and Presidential candidate Bernie Sanders is in agreement.

“The American people are sick and tired [about] hearing about your DAMN emails,” adding “Enough of the emails.” — Bernie Sanders

When asked about Clinton’s emails, an August poll revealed 51 percent said YES it was a problem while 36 said NO. Among Democrats, 71 percent have said Clinton did nothing wrong. While a majority believe the emails hurt Clinton, that opinion is on the decline, down from 56 percent in March.

When it comes to Republicans being obsessed with Clinton and yearning for scandals, well, I’m still standing,” said Clinton.
