Tim Kaine Dodges On Clinton Staffer Given Immunity To Avoid Prosecution

Hillary Clinton’s running mate Tim Kaine appeared on NBC’s Today Show to talk about the first presidential debate.

NBC’s Savannah Guthrie asked Kaine to explain why Clinton staffers were given immunity from criminal prosecution as part of the FBI investigation into Clinton’s email practices.

“You know, I thought that there was a pair of trust issues that were put on the table for each of them. The e-mail question was hers to answer. And she did, she just looked right in the camera and said I made a mistake, and I apologize for it. I take responsibility. There’s been an FBI investigation, and they’ve determined nothing more needs to be done,” Kaine told Guthrie.

Guthrie, clearly not pleased with Kaine ducking her question, pressed Kaine on the immunity issue, but Kaine avoided the question again and pivoted to attacking Donald Trump’s birther claims.
