Robby Mook, Hillary Clinton’s campaign manager, argued on Sunday that the emails she deleted are “not a relevant discussion” anymore.

Appearing on NBC’s “Meet the Press,” host Chuck Todd asked Mook if the Clinton campaign would “encourage” the release the 33,000 emails that Hillary Clinton deleted from her time that she was secretary of state. (RELATED: Clinton Campaign Hacked)

“This is settled over now,” Mook replied. “Secretary Clinton went in and testified for 11 hours in front of a Congressional committee. They asked her a lot of questions about this. They came up with nothing. The FBI has concluded their look at this issue and so we’re moving on. When Hillary has been out there on her economic tour the last few days talking with voters, they’re asking her about how they can afford college and get a better job and that’s what we’re going to stay focused on.” (RELATED: Comey Confirms Hillary Clinton Lied To The Public About Her Emails [VIDEO])

“I understand that, but if you can release them, do you want them released,” Todd followed up.

“It’s just not a relevant discussion any more,” Mook replied. “This matter has been concluded. Many officials have taken a long look at this and we’re just moving forward.”

“All right. So you’re not taking a position on whether you want to see these e-mails, released,” Todd responded.

“It’s just not a relevant question any more because this matter has been concluded and you’re asking about hypothetical emails that may or may not be there and so we’re just going to stay focused as a campaign on the things that the voters are actually asking us about,” Mook said.
