Castro Says Hillary ‘Cleared’ By Justice Department, Gets Called Out Immediately [VIDEO]

Texas Democratic Rep. Joaquin Castro, twin brother of rumored Hillary Clinton vice presidential short-lister Julian Castro, claimed on CNN’s “State Of The Union” that Clinton has been “cleared” by the Justice Department for her handling of classified material and her secret, private email server.

Castro told the roundtable, “It’s been settled by the Congress. The Congress has looked into it. The Justice Department has looked into it, and they’ve cleared her.”

Host Dana Bash pointed out Clinton has not been cleared, and that the investigation is ongoing. “The Department of Justice is looking into it,” Bash said.

Radio host Hugh Hewitt responded, “She’s been cleared? I missed that headline.”

The show then went to a break.
