Chuck Todd: The Three Letters That "Totally Changed" The Clinton Private Server Story

|

On Tuesday's broadcast of Morning Joe, Chuck Todd, host of NBC's Meet the Press, declared these three letters "totally changed" the Hillary Clinton private server controversy: F-B-I.

"The letters FBI is what changed this story," Todd said to host Joe Scarborough. "This is the difference between us and Washington and New York saying and her effectively a month ago being able to say this is you guys in the media that care about this, voters don't. That was true a month ago. The three letters FBI totally changed that."

JOE SCARBOROUGH: Let's go to last night where she's in a fundraiser, this is much ado about nothing and she is doing Snapchat jokes while the FBI is expanding their investigation, it's at 305 e-mails and beyond, where all of us, who report the news, who, you know, read the news, look at it and go, well, that's plainly not true. Just look at what se did last night and she's digging herself in a deeper hole. She's destroying her credibility. Why is she doing it?

CHUCK TODD: You know, this is -- the only explanation is, it's how they've handled these situations for the last 25 years.

SCARBOROUGH: But she's fighting The New York Times not Breitbart --

TODD: They believe they've been fighting the The New York Times by the way for years.

SCARBOROUGH: It's the FBI, not just Rush Limbaugh.

CHUCK TODD: Which by the way, those three letters, because, look, I found the same thing. My three days in Iowa, when I was talking to Democrats out there, and not just Democrats who want a job, Democrats who just simply are voting and taking their kids to the fair.

The letters FBI is what changed this story. This is the difference between us and Washington and New York saying and her effectively a month ago being able to say this is you guys in the media that care about this, voters don't. That was true a month ago. The three letters FBI totally changed that.
