Todd: ‘Whole Bunch’ Of Clinton Operatives Going To DC To ‘Hand-Hold’ Nervous Dems


With an FBI investigation into her private email server, troubling polling numbers, and Joe Biden waiting in the wings, Hillary Clinton’s campaign is in full damage control mode, sending a "whole bunch of operatives" from Brooklyn to D.C., Chuck Todd said Friday.

"They’re trying to make this into a partisan attack. They’re trying to reassure Democrats behind the scenes," Todd said. "A whole bunch of Clinton operatives have flown down from Brooklyn to D.C. to try to do some hand-holding here, to try and calm some nerves."

Democrats have been increasingly nervous that Clinton’s email scandal is out of her control because the campaign mishandled the issue from the beginning.

"I tell you, last week, you had Democrats privately complaining," Todd said. "This week, they're going public."
