Chris Wallace Makes One Comparison Leaving Clinton's Campaign Manager Scrambling

As WikiLeaks continues to release a wave of emails that pulls the curtain back on the braintrust of the Hillary Clinton campaign, the candidate and her campaign are doing their darndest to point out that the bigger issue at hand is the fact that those nefarious Russians are threatening our democracy. Although it hasn’t been proven beyond a shadow of a doubt that Russia is in fact the source of the leak, that’s their story and they’re sticking to it.

As Western Journalism points out, that narrative is beginning to have some serious holes punched in it, and it doesn’t appear that the Clinton campaign knows how to respond when some basic points on their logic are laid out in front of them. Campaign manager Robby Mook recently sat down with Chris Wallace of Fox News, and he’s probably wishing he hadn’t done that right about now.

“These are stolen documents, stolen by the Russians — it’s now confirmed — from John Podesta, that are being put out for this purpose,” said Mook.

“Can I speak to that? You know, the Trump tax returns were stolen as well when they were mailed to The New York Times. You guys didn’t object to that, in fact, you jumped all over them,” Wallace replied.

A visibly stunned Mook was not quite prepared for that, and he proceeded to stammer awkwardly through the remainder of the interview. While he attempted to return to the ‘stolen email’ narrative, Wallace’s point clearly threw him off of his game.
