Hillary Clinton Hillary Clinton Email Scandal Julian Castro

Castro defends Clinton

24 May, 2015

Castro appears on CNN and answers questions about Clinton and the 2016 campaign.

Let’s take a look at this issue of Benghazi. This thing has been studied to death by Republicans and Democrats, several committees including in Congress that have all said, yes, of course what happened was tragic but Secretary Clinton was not in any way at all responsible. And what you have here with these e-mails is basically a witch hunt. And you know, Congressman Gowdy, who is leading this, is very intentionally trying to manipulate this witch hunt to play politics.

I think we need focus on more substantive things. As one who hasn’t spent my lifetime in D.C., I know that out there in America they care about are you reducing Veteran homelessness, are you providing the impetus for young people to be able to achieve their dreams, are we making sure that America in this 21st century remains the undisputed land of opportunity, not whether somebody had e-mails or didn’t have them
