CNN’s Jack Tapper asked Clinton campaign manager Robby Mook about a leaked video from Project Veritas’s James O’Keefe that shows two men discussing ways to incite violence at Republican rallies.
The men, Robert Creamer and Scott Fogel, were hired by the DNC to help with voter outreach efforts. Since the video’s release last week, the men have resigned.
On State of the Union this morning, when asked by Tapper if he had looked into the veracity of the claims made on the video, Mook denied any association with the men and insisted the Clinton campaign does not condone violence of any kind.
“Violence is unacceptable, these individuals no longer have a relationship with the DNC, [and] they never had a relationship with the Clinton campaign,” Mook said.
“But certainly even if they weren’t working for the DNC, if they were Democrats and they were instigating violence, this is horrific,” Tapper shot back.
Mook shifted the blame to Clinton’s opponent, Donald Trump.
“This is again an attempt by Donald Trump to distract from the real issues of this campaign. He’s spiraling after his last debate, and he doesn’t want to talk about substance.”
