Hillary Clinton’s former campaign manager wouldn’t say if his old boss would have fired the FBI director if she had won the election.
Robby Mook, Hillary Clinton’s former campaign manager, dodged on whether she would have immediately sacked FBI Director James Comey if she had won the 2016 election in an appearance on MSNBC on Wednesday.
“Hillary Clinton wasn’t elected President of the United States,” Mook said. “I think this is a classic example of how the Trump administration is trying to get us to debate, ‘What would Hillary have done?'”
MSNBC’s Stephanie Rhule pushed back on Mook’s dodge. “I’m not part of the Trump campaign. This is me asking you,” she said. “Would Hillary Clinton have fired James Comey?”
“I honestly have no clue. We were running a campaign. We were focused on winning votes,” Mook said.
Mook claimed that the “discussion never came up,” despite Clinton’s public fixation on Comey’s alleged influence on the outcome of the 2016 election.
“It doesn’t matter,” Mook concluded.
White House Deputy Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders had told MSNBC earlier in the day, “If Hillary Clinton had won, she would have immediately fired James Comey.”
