“Well, I think it is important to underscore that Secretary Clinton isn’t even a target of this inquiry, investigation, whatever ‘I’ word you want to use,” Wasserman Schultz responded.
“How do you know that?” Hemmer asked.
“Because I repeatedly, I’ve repeatedly been told that,” Wasserman Schultz claimed. “I mean, my understanding is that Secretary Clinton is not the target of this investigation or whatever you want to call it.”
“Has the FBI shared that with you?” Hemmer asked.
“I am only repeating what my understanding is,” Wasserman Schutlz said.
