Webb Hubbell: 'I Was Surprised at Chelsea Going After Bernie'

Newsmax TV's "The Steve Malzberg Show"

By    |   Friday, 15 Jan 2016 04:04 PM

Web Hubbell, the onetime law partner of Hillary Clinton, called out the Democratic presidential front-runner Friday on Newsmax TV — saying she shouldn't be using her daughter Chelsea as an attack dog on the campaign trail.

The former First Daughter stunned many Democrats this week when she blasted Sen. Bernie Sanders — who's nipping at her mother's heels in the polls — charging that the Vermont Independent wants to "dismantle" the Affordable Care Act and Medicare.

The verbal assault — Chelsea's campaign debut for her mother's White House bid — jolted Hubbell, who served as assistant U.S attorney general under President Bill Clinton.

"I was surprised at Chelsea going after Bernie. I wouldn't involve children if it were up to me, but nobody's asking my opinion about it," Hubbell said Friday on Newsmax's "The Steve Malzberg Show."

"We need to keep children out of the campaigns. Even though she's an adult, whether it's Hillary's children or Bernie's children or Mitt Romney had his children out there, I don't think that is appropriate."

Hubbell also said he isn't worried about the impending FBI investigation involving Clinton's use of a private email server for government business while she served as secretary of state.

"We don't know who they're investigating and what they're investigating. But assume they are, it'll be over far before the conventions," he said.

"They're aware that elections are going on and the director of the FBI and the attorney general are not going to let it drag into the election period."

Asked by Malzberg for his take on Thursday's roiling GOP debate in which Donald Trump, Sen. Ted Cruz of Texas, Sen. Marco Rubio of Florida and New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie slugged it out, Hubbell said:

"A lot of fearmongering going on, it seems like everybody wants to go to war on the Republican side … they just kept trying to out-tough one another.

"From my perspective, nobody [did well], but I would say that Rubio and Christie at least seemed to have some moderation in them."

Hubbell is author of the thrillers "Ginger Snaps" and the upcoming "Game of Inches," both of which feature a sleuthing antitrust lawyer named Jack Patterson.
