Mary Katharine Ham, senior writer at The Federalist, and John McCormack, senior writer at The Weekly Standard, discussed FBI Director James Comey’s testimony on the Hill today, Donald Trump’s bewildering inability to attack Clinton, and the latest partisan politics.
Donald Trump could have easily picked on Hillary Clinton and her email story this week, but he is instead ranting about his Star of David tweet and the dishonest media. “It’s not the biggest outrage, but it becomes a larger outrage when he continues to talk about it, when his other option is Hillary,” Ham said.
Rep. Trey Gowdy challenged James Comey on the truthfulness of Clinton’s email defenses. “[Comey] even said in his original presentation that yes, a normal person would be punished for this, but she’s essentially too big to punish,” Ham said. “She’s found this great loophole whole which is being the president.”
McCormack explained the Democratic Party’s new abortion extremism and how Democrats in Congress are making false claims about the Zika bill for purely partisan reasons. “Planned Parenthood’s stranglehold on the Democratic Party cannot be set aside for anything,” Ham said.
