Fox’s Megyn Kelly brought on former White House deputy press secretary Bill Burton last night to press him about Hillary Clinton receiving emails about Libya of questionable intelligence from Sidney Blumenthal, someone the Obama administration had already prevented Clinton from hiring at the State Department.
Burton said that everyone in the administration has friends, and the Blumenthal story is “confusing” and just a “trumped-up controversy” anyway.
Kelly asked Burton about the “cloud of corruption that follows” Clinton everywhere. Burton retorted, “Maybe it just only follows her around on your network.”
Kelly shot back that it was The New York Times that broke the Blumenthal story, not Fox, while Burton took shots at Clinton’s Republican rivals for focusing on her over important issues.
