Tim Kaine appeared on ABC’s “This Week” to talk about recently released emails from the Clinton campaign on the website WikiLeaks. ABC’s Martha Raddatz asked Kaine specifically about an email from Jennifer Palmieri regarding Catholics.
Palmieri said of Catholicism, “The most socially acceptable politically conservative religion.”
“Their rich friends wouldn’t understand if they became evangelicals,” Palmieri told Campaign Chairman John Podesta.
Raddatz asked Kaine, a devout Catholic himself, whether the Clinton campaign should apologize for these emails. Kaine dodged the question attacking the legitimacy of the emails and blaming the Russians for the hack instead.
Raddatz pressed Kaine on the apology. Kaine responded, “We all have opinions, and I don’t think you need to apologize for your opinions. But in fact, that’s a great thing about our country, and even about being Catholic, we have plenty of opinions. So you don’t need to apologize for an opinion.”
