Susan Page, Washington Bureau Chief for USA Today, explained that Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel, who has worked for the Clintons and Barack Obama, “has been involved in handling scandals and controversies on the part of people he’s served.”

Appearing on MSNBC’s “Andrea Mitchell Reports” Wednesday along side Washington Post reporter Chris Cilizza, Page explained, “I think Rahm understands this is going to be investigated and pursued. Questions about the timeline. Was there a coverup? Was there a delay for political purposes? We’ll hear more of this story.” (RELATED: Mayor Rahm Emanuel Has Lost The ‘Trust And Confidence Of The People Of Chicago’ [VIDEO])

Emanuel worked in the Clinton White House, was a leading Democratic congressman and who served as Obama’s first White House chief of staff, still “stays in touch with people in Washington,” explained Cilizza.

“Politically speaking, this story certainly seems to me like it’s going to get worse, not better, for Rahm Emanuel,” said Cilizza. “I thought he was combative, which is nothing new for him. That’s sort of his approach… And that demeanor, I’m not sure suits the political position he is currently in.” (RELATED: Rahm Emanuel TEARS Into Politico Reporter Who Spilled Vacation Plans [VIDEO])

Host Andrea Mitchell explained Emanuel is also “very close to Hillary Clinton.”
