National Journal columnist Ron Fournier continued his critique of Hillary Clinton on Monday, stating that Democrats are “scared to death” of the scandals surrounding the former secretary of state.
Fournier made the comment on Fox News’ “Special Report” host Bret Baier.
“But is the alarm going off in the Democratic Party?” Baier asked the National Journal scribe.
“Yes. Don’t buy the spin. They are scared to death,” Fournier said. “There is a lot of them starting to think ‘is she the best candidate for us?'”
“Is there another [candidate] out there?” Baier followed up.
“Their bench compared to Republican bench is awfully, awfully, thin,” Fournier said. “There’s a lot of Democrats, by the way, who are saying follow the money. A lot of Democrats are really worried about the [Clinton] Foundation. That’s what they are really worried about it.”
Fournier also touched on comments by former Clinton adviser James Carville on Sunday, in which he admitted the former First Lady probably wanted control of her emails to make sure House Republicans could not see them later on.
“[W]hat Carville did was give up the goods. What he admitted there was that this was not a matter of convenience, which is what the secretary said,” Fournier said. “He admitted that the reason she did this was so she didn’t have to comply with the oversight of the House and with the natural laws of transparency.”
“He gave up the goods,” Fournier added. “He sold her out.”
