During an interview of State of the Union on Sunday, CNN’s Jake Tapper asked Hillary Clinton’s running mate, Sen. Tim Kaine, about speeches that Clinton gave to Wall Street that were made public by Wikileaks.
Tapper asked Kaine specifically about Clinton claiming her “dream is a hemispheric common market with open borders, sometime in the future.”
“I don’t think we can dignify documents dumped by WikiLeaks and just assume that they’re all accurate and true,” Kaine began. “Anybody who hacks into get documents is completely capable of manipulating them. But you asked the question about what is her position on policy. Hillary’s position on policy on markets and trade is very plain, which is we’ll do trade deals but only if they meet three criteria: do they increase American jobs, and do they increase American wages, and are they good for national security.”
Tapper pressed Kaine on his original question asking again, “Did Hillary Clinton not say to these Brazillian bankers that she has this dream?”
“Jake, I have no way of knowing the accuracy of documents dumped by this hacking organization,” Kaine told Tapper.
“Right, that’s fair. Is this document … accurate? Did she tell Brazilian bankers that her dream–” Tapper pressed Kaine again trying to get an answer to his question.
Kaine jumped in, “I have no way of knowing that.”
“Well, you could ask her,” Tapper interjected.
“But the documents are in the thousands. I haven’t asked her,” Kaine told Tapper apparently determined not to answer the question.
