CBS News' Dickerson: Clinton's Email Scandal Hits at her 'Honesty'


By    |   Thursday, 26 May 2016 01:27 PM

CBS News political director John Dickerson on Thursday said he believes the Inspector General's report has damaged Hillary Clinton and raises even more questions about her "truthfulness and honesty."

Dickerson, appearing on "CBS This Morning," said the email scandal is about "judgment and character" and portends more danger in the form of new questions about Clinton.

"When [Clinton] says it was allowed and it was fine and I've been transparent, and then you have an Inspector General saying the opposite thing, people are getting a fresh, real-time test of whether the candidate is shooting straight with them," Dickerson said.

When asked if the Inspector General's report will affect Clinton's campaign, Dickerson, the "Face the Nation" host said it already has.

"[Clinton] has to get out from under these questions about her truthfulness and her honesty," Dickerson told the show. "This gives more fresh opportunities for her and her campaign to say things that are at odds with official responses."

And that's more ammunition for Clinton's opponents.

"It falls into a characterization of you, and it gives people fresh evidence of that underlying critique," Dickerson said. "That's a problem because it's not something that happened in the past, it's happening right in front of people as they watch it and as they're making evaluations about her."
