DailyMailUK: Hillary Clinton’s running mate Tim Kaine says untruths the Democrat may have told about her emails can be chalked up to ‘variations’ in the language she used when answering scores of questions about the scandal.
‘If you ask somebody a question 150 times or 200 times, you’re gonna be able to find that they don’t use exactly the same word every time,’ Kaine told NBC’s Savannah Guthrie on Today. ‘There’s gonna be variations, and then people are gonna play on those. ‘
Clinton has admitted she made a mistake and apologized, he said.
‘When has Donald Trump during the course of this campaign or his life said I made a mistake, and I’m better and I’m gonna learn from it.’
Guthrie had noted that at least four times that Clinton made statements to the public that ‘turned out’ not to be true.
She told him Clinton had used the ‘same verbiage’ on those occasions, the issue is that what she said ‘just happens to not be true.’
‘Here’s what I’ve heard her say. I’ve heard her say, I made a mistake, and I’ve learned something from it, and I wouldn’t do it again, and I apologize.’
Pressing him, Guthrie said Clinton has not, however, acknowledged that she made false statements to the American people.
