Bernie Sanders Hillary Clinton Hillary Clinton Email Scandal

Defends Clinton on emails

13 Oct, 2015

At the first Democratic debate, Sanders defends Clinton over her email controversy.

Clinton: I’ve taken responsibility for it. I did say it was a mistake. I have been as transparent as I know to be, turning over 55,000 pages of my e-mails, asking that they be made public. [I’d rather spend my time talking about] the issues that matter to the American people
Sanders: Let me say — let me say something that may not be great politics. But I think the secretary is right, and that is that the American people are sick and tired of hearing about your damn emails.
Clinton: Thank you. Me, too. Me, too.

The two then exchange a friendly handshake.
