A raging, unhinged Donald Trump threatened Hillary Clinton with prison during a presidential debate unlike any other. But corporate media pundits said he won.
Tim Kaine appeared on CNN earlier today, and refused to even discuss the issues raised by the Wikileaks release of excerpts of Hillary Clinton’s paid speeches.
Host Jake Tapper pointed to a 2013 Clinton speech before a Brazilian bank where she said her “dream is a hemispheric common market with open borders some time in the future.” He then asked Kaine about it, saying, “Is that her dream? Is that what she wants? Open borders? An open market?”
Kaine’s dodge: “Yes, Jake, I’m glad you asked it that way, because I don’t think we can dignify documents dumped by WikiLeaks and just assume that they’re all accurate and true. Anybody who hacks into get documents is completely capable of manipulating them.”
No one in a position to know, within the Clinton campaign, has actually denied the authenticity of the documents.
Tapper continued to ask Kaine about the speeches, and Kaine continued to deflect. “Jake, I have no way of knowing the accuracy of documents dumped by this hacking organization,” he replied once more. He continued to deflect until Tapper ended the interview. Watch it:
