Sen. Barbara Boxer Dismisses Hillary Email Scandal: "Let's Move On To What's Important To The People"


ANDREA MITCHELL, NBC NEWS: Let me ask you about something that Rand Paul said this morning on The Today Show.

SEN. RAND PAUL: She said there wasn't classified information. I'm not the sure that can be trusted since we can't trust her to do the right thing the first time. And the thing about classified information, we're not talking about transmitting necessarily a document that's classified but many of her conversations would be classified. So let's say I wanted to know tomorrow about all her conversations by e-mail with the president. I would think many of those would be classified and yet she says that she did these conversations on a private server.

MITCHELL: Senator, I know you disputed that.

SEN. BARBARA BOXER (D-CA): Let me respond to Rand Paul. He said he doesn't trust Hillary Clinton, someone he may be running against for the presidency. This is a shock. A lot of people don't trust Rand Paul. What does it prove? The bottom line is Rand Paul's going to say what he did with his e-mails. Either you trust him or not. Hillary Clinton is going to say what she did with hers. Let's move on to what's important to the people here.

And I have to say with all due respect I used to be a reporter many years ago. Reporters love confrontation, we could talk about this forever. The bottom line is -- I know you know this -- no law was broken. She turned these over. She admitted that looking back on it she should have had two separate ways of writing her personal and her work e-mails. Let's get on with it. And if you don't believe her, don't vote for her. That's what I think and if you believe her then vote for her.
