Hillary Comments on Podcast: “Re-Indicted And It Feels So Good (with Hillary Clinton!)”

On the night before Trump’s second arraignment, Hillary Clinton appeared in a live taping of a podcast interview in Tribeca, and made her first public comments on the Florida indictment.

Pod Save America is hosted by former Obama aides Jon Favreau, Tommy Vietor, and Dan Pfeiffer. Guest co-hosting was MSNBC’S Alex Wagner, and other guests on Monday included comedian Roy Wood, Jr., and NY AG Letitia James.

In response to the classic Republican whataboutism, the return to Hillary’s e-mails, Clinton said,  “I do think it’s odd, let’s just say, to the point of being absurd, how that is their only response,” she said. The GOP’s efforts to defend Trump are “truly beyond anything that I ever thought possible in this country,” said Clinton. “It is so profoundly disturbing how this could have been the break. This could’ve been the opportunity to say, you know, thank you so much for everything you’ve done for us, we really appreciate it, but this is kind of serious, so we’re not going to continue to defend you. But no, they’re all in again. The psychology of this is so hard for me to fully grasp.” 

Attorney General Tish James also weighed in on the indictment.

James said she is watching what’s happening in context of her own $250 million civil fraud lawsuit against Trump, three of his adult children and the Trump Organization.

Before the federal case developed into indictment, James said she was confident there would be a New York trial in October.

“Obviously everyone wants to know what this judge, Judge [Aileen] Cannon, is going to do and whether or not she’s going to delay this particular case,” James said. In all likelihood, I believe that my case, as well as DA [Alvin] Bragg and the Georgia case, will unfortunately have to be adjourned pending the outcome of the federal case.”
