Tim Kaine: Hillary Has Owned Up to Her Email Mistakes

(NBC's "Today")

Tim Kaine defended running mate Hillary Clinton trustworthiness on Wednesday, saying that she's often owned up to her mistakes over the use of a private email server while she was secretary of state.

"I've heard her say, 'I made a mistake, and I've learned something from it, and I wouldn't do it again, and I apologize,'" the Democratic vice-presidential nominee told NBC's "Today" anchor Savannah Guthrie.

He also defended Clinton over a question from Guthrie about Clinton making statements that were later proven to be false at least four times this past year.

"Listen, if you asked somebody a question 150 times or 200 times, you're going to be able to find that they don't use exactly the same word every time,'' said the Virginia senator, who was interviewed with wife Anne Holton.

"And there's going to be variations, and then people are going to play on those."

Kaine on Wednesday also said he supports the public release of FBI notes and interviews regarding his running mate's email investigation.

"Anything that the FBI gives to Congress they should give to the public, because what we've seen is this lengthy, multi-million dollar congressional investigation that has been highly partisan, where they've wanted to leak out this or that to try to make their case against Hillary Clinton," Kaine said.

Clinton is currently ahead in most national polls, but Kaine told Guthrie that the campaign is not being overconfident that it has the race already wrapped up.

"I see no complacency on the team," Kaine said. "I have been in a lot of races. This is the ninth ballot I'll be on, and I've won every race, but barely, usually. And the way I win is I say, 'Be an underdog till they call you the winner.'"

Also on Wednesday, Kaine said he has "no idea" what the GOP nominee is talking about with his claims that Clinton does not have the mental and physical stamina to become president, and thinks Trump is trying to deflect attention away from his own shortcomings.

"Did you see the incredible amount of work that Hillary did around the world?" said Kaine. "Her travel schedule as secretary of state? And look at the grueling nature of this campaign . . . The real issue is his lack of the kind of temperament to be commander in chief and to be president, and voters see that and they sense that."

Kaine also called Trump's plans for an ideological test and "extreme vetting" of immigrants, saying that the GOP nominee may be trying to make his previous call for a Muslim ban "prettier," but he has his doubts.

"This is a guy who has proposed to treat Muslims as second-class citizens, whether they're entering into the country," said Kaine.

"He's even suggested that Muslims who are here should have to take some kind of a pledge that they're not going to follow Sharia law. We do not need to go down a path where we treat people differently because of their religious beliefs."
