Tapper Shuts Down Clinton Surrogate on Clinton’s Email Talking Points


Former Michigan Governor Jennifer Granholm was shut down by CNN's Jake Tapper when she used Hillary Clinton's talking points on Clinton's private email server.

Granholm called the Democratic presidential nominee honest and blamed the media for continuing to talking talk about Clinton's emails while misconstruing the story against her, Tapper called her out.

"Governor, with all due respect, I didn't misread anything or misrepresent anything," Tapper said. "Every fact checker agrees with me, what she has been saying is not true and I do think a candidate's honesty is important."

Clinton has repeatedly said that FBI Director James Comey has said that she was truthful while talking about her emails. This has been reported as being false with the Washington Post fact-checkers giving the presidential nominee four Pinocchios.

Granholm said that Clinton's emails are irrelevant to what Americans care about and that she had clarified her statements.

Granholm said that Clinton told the FBI what she had told the American people when asked about her private email server in interviews.

"All right, well, I don't think that's true," Tapper said, prompting a yell from Granholm.
