David Gergen: Hillary Clinton Needs To Clear The Air Before The First Debate

David Gergen who served as counselor to President Bill Clinton was asked if Hillary Clinton would be better off having a large press conference to address the concerns people have about her trustworthiness.

“She’d be well advised to do something before the first debate, try to clear the air as much as she can. I’ve delt with all those issues, so forth, when she gets in the debate. Then she can focus on the issues themselves, the big issues, substantive issues as well as her attack lines on Donald Trump,” Gergen told CNN’s Carol Costello.

Gergen also conceded though that if other polls show Clinton with a 15-point trust gap then, “It’s a more serious problem for her than we thought.”
