Jake Tapper: Hillary "Definitely" Should Be Asked About Bergdahl

HUGH HEWITT: Last question. Former Secretary of State Clinton will be out on the book circuit fairly soon.


HEWITT: I don’t know if she’s booked for The Lead, yet. Is she booked for The Lead, yet?

TAPPER: She is not. No, I don’t think I’m going to be getting an interview with her.

HEWITT: Well, she’s sitting down with Bret Baier and Greta Van Susteren, so I think she’ll get a fair shake from The Lead, too. I just wondered, do you think it would be a legitimate question to ask her about this deal, because she obviously had to have been involved in iterations one and two of this, right?

TAPPER: Yeah, definitely. First of all, I think there’s very little that should be off the table when interviewing a former secretary of State who by all accounts wants to be president of the United States, even if she hasn’t acknowledged or admitted or announced such a decision, or made such a decision. But certainly, I think that asking about this deal and the concerns people have about it, and the message it sends, is definitely fair. I’m sure she will be asked about it. A lot of excellent people interviewing here, I think Diane Sawyer, Robin Roberts, Cynthia McFadden, Chrstiane Amanpour, Bret Baier, Greta Van Susteren, I’m sure, a lot of tough reporters there. I’m sure she’ll get a lot of tough questions.
