Donald Trump’s campaign manager Kellyanne Conway appeared on MSNBC Sunday to desperately try to spin the news that FBI Director James Comey announced his agency found no evidence of wrongdoing in its investigation of Hillary Clinton’s use of a private email server during her time as Secretary of State.
Host Steve Kornacki pointed out to Conway that on Friday Trump said the Clinton email “scandal” would be “bigger than Watergate.” He asked how she feels about that statement now.
“Some things haven’t changed at all,” Conway insisted. Clinton, she said was reckless and careless with classified information.
Kornacki pointed to the Trump campaign’s shifting views on Comey, who they initially said was too soft on Clinton in its investigation, then abruptly began to praise the director when it appeared his intervention might give the campaign an 11th hour boost.
“He’s mishandled the investigation from the beginning,” Conway said, going on to ask, “Why the dribs and drabs” of information have leaked during the investigation. Why, she asked, has Comey appeared to send such mixed messages on the topic of Clinton’s emails?
She then tried to downplay the importance of the email issue to their campaign message.
“This has not been front and center of our campaign,” Conway insisted, before pivoting to attack Clinton.

Beto O’Rourke calls for a ‘war tax’ in release of health care plan for veterans
The Democratic presidential candidate uses his eighth policy announcement to focus on an area that he prioritized in Congress.
Democratic presidential candidate Beto O'Rourke on Monday morning released a plan to improve the lives of veterans, returning to an area of priority during his time in the U.S. House for his latest 2020 policy rollout.
In keeping with measures he supported in Congress, the plan calls for a "responsible end" to the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan — reinvesting $1 out of every $2 saved in veterans programs — and the creation of a Veterans Health Care Trust Fund for each future war. The fund would be paid for by a "war tax" on households without service members or veterans.
Conservative Ben Shapiro tweeted something many found offensive — so now he’s calling his critics ‘garbage’
Right wing "thought leader" Ben Shapiro appeared today to say not using the "N" word is nearly impossible as he defended conservative, pro-gun teen Kyle Kashuv, one of the Parkland survivors who just had his acceptance to Harvard rescinded over his racist remarks, which included repeated use of the "N" word.
To be clear, Shapiro denies that's what he meant.
Here is Shapiro on Twitter, in what many took as him appearing to call not using the "N" word – in Kashuv's case, repeatedly, over and over and over again, "an insane, cruel standard no one can possibly meet."
