This morning on Fox News Sunday, when asked about the devastating inspector general's report on the third-rate email Hillary Clinton used as Barack Obama's secretary of state, Schiff tried to repeatedly tried to change the subject by bringing up Colin Powell, George W. Bush's SoS.
But host Chris Wallace wasn't having any of it.
Hillary Clinton is running for president. Colin Powell is not running for president. The rules in 2004 were completely different. They're complete different guidelines. Sir, the guidelines were repeatedly strengthened in 2005, in 2006, in 2007 — 20011. Hillary Clinton was operating in a different world. Can we please stay to the issue of what Hillary Clinton did or didn't do and not talk about Colin Powell?
Schiff kept trying to change the conversation and fall back on his Democratic talking points.
Which led Wallace to respond:
I — I think, first of all, we’ve shown that it is — it is different. And, secondly, I think it's, frankly, a red herring, sir, and I would expect more from you.Yes a red herring.
