MSNBC’s Chris Matthews claims that there is a “vast right-wing conspiracy” against Hillary Clinton that’s similar to the one of the Monica Lewinsky scandal days.

Tuesday on “MSNBC Live,” Matthews said, “This is the weirdness about politics: It can be, that you can also have a problem, but your enemies are going to blow it up out of proportion.” (RELATED: Krauthammer: Hillary’s Defense Of Top Secret Email Is Reminiscent Of The Lewinsky Scandal [VIDEO])

Monday, during the Democratic Town Hall on CNN, questioner Taylor Gipple told Clinton, “I’ve heard quite a few people my age that think you’re dishonest…”

Matthews, clearly taking issue with that statement directed towards Clinton, said, “I think somebody saying to your face, talk about bad manners, you’re dishonest. Well, wow, you’re saying to former secretary of state, former senator from New York, you’re dishonest? That’s pretty nervy for a young person to say that to a major figure in American life like that kid did.”

“And Hillary, what’s she going to say, I’m not dishonest? She has to go back to the motives of those who have raised the questions about her honesty, which is, unfortunately for her, very much like what she said back during the Monica days, when she said there’s a vast right-wing conspiracy out to get me. But, in fact, there is,” Matthews claimed. (RELATED: Hillary’s Campaign Accuses Intel IG Of Coordinating With GOP On Damning Email Reports)
