Ed Schultz Blasts Clinton for Refusing to Take Positions on Keystone and TPP

July 29, 2015

MSNBC host Ed Schultz blasted Hillary Clinton Wednesday for her refusal to take positions on the Keystone XL pipeline and the Trans-Pacific Partnership.

In the past couple of days, Clinton has been asked several times about her stance on the Keystone XL pipeline. She refused to answer the questions.

"That is such a dodge," Schultz said. "She’s also one of the most powerful political figures in this country and people deserve an answer, not just a grandmother."

Clinton also declined to offer a clear stance on TPP.

Clinton said she won’t offer a comment on the TPP and Keystone because she had "official responsibilities" with those issues when she served as Secretary of State.

"And you know I don't want to make too much of this because I’m very clear and have been consistently that I do not think it appropriate for me to comment on something that I had official responsibilities for until it is completed," Clinton said.

"I think it is a political dodge," Schultz said. "There is no law anywhere that says that the person running for president can't comment on any issue under the sun. If Hillary Clinton wants to be the next president of the United States, she needs to step out and she needs to come clean and needs to answer on these two very important issues."
