'60 Minutes' Omitted Clinton's Answers on DNC Stifling Sanders

(CBS News)

The CBS news magazine show "60 Minutes" aired a two-part interview with Hillary Clinton and new running mate Tim Kaine on Sunday night, but omitted a key segment about email leaks that showed Democratic National Committee members interfering with Bernie Sanders' run for the nomination.

CBS elected, instead, to play that segment on "Overtime," its digital-only product with millions of fewer eyeballs.

Interviewer Scott Pelley, also the CBS Evening News anchor, asked Clinton three questions about officials within the DNC trying to prop up Clinton while undermining Sanders' campaign, and Clinton gave three versions of "I don't know" anything.

Clinton did muster up criticism of the DNC's chief financial officer, revealed in the email leaks that came out, trying to make some headway in southern states by getting a question posed to Sanders about his religious beliefs — Jewish or atheist?

"I am adamantly opposed to anyone bringing religion into our political process," Clinton told Pelley. "The Constitution says no religious tests so that is just absolutely wrong and unacceptable."

The email leaks and what they contained led to DNC chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz to immediately announce her resignation.
