James Carville vs. Andrea Mitchell on Private Hillary Emails: Bunch of "Right-Wing Talking Points," "All About Nothing"

|

James Carville goes toe-to-toe with NBC News' Andrea Mitchell on the Hillary Clinton private e-mail server controversy. Carville said, "We've lived with this for 20 years. We'll live with it for the rest of the campaign."

ANDREA MITCHELL, NBC NEWS: Isn't it time for Hillary Clinton to speak out? If you were advising her, should she address these issues?

JAMES CARVILLE: I wouldn't -- I don't know exactly -- it was legal. It wasn't against regulations. Colin Powell and Jeb Bush did the same thing, but oh, my God. Do you remember Whitewater? Do you remember Foulgate? Do you remember Travelgate? Do you remember Pardongate? Do you remember Benghazi?

All of this is just the same cockamamie stuff that we go through. The Times got something from right-wing talking points. They print the story. They've got to walk the story back. And everybody -- the chin scratchers go 'Oh, my God. The story's not right, but it says something larger about the Clintons.' This is never going to end. We've lived with this for 20 years. We'll live with it for the rest of the campaign. It's all about nothing. That's my view of the whole thing.
