Clinton Campaign Manager: Trump Spilled Briefing Information

By    |   Thursday, 08 Sep 2016 12:26 PM

Hillary Clinton's campaign manager Robby Mook accused Donald Trump of spilling information he learned during his classified briefings during Wednesday night's NBC/MSNBC presidential forum, calling it "concerning."

"It's concerning that Donald Trump was potentially sharing information that he learned in his briefing," Mook told ABC's "Good Morning America" program Thursday.

During the forum, Trump said he learned that "our leadership, Barack Obama, did not follow ... what our experts said to do. In almost every instance, I could tell -- I'm pretty good with the body language -- they were not happy. Our leaders did not follow what they were recommending."

Trump did not specify exactly what he learned during his briefings on Aug. 17 and Sept. 2.

But when it comes to Trump's plans for ISIS, Mook commented that it "was clear last night, there's really no plan at all.

"What was really scary was he keeps talking about the secret plan that he has to defeat ISIS," Mook said.

Trump commented during the forum that he does not wish to share the details on his strategy, as he doesn't "want to broadcast to the enemy exactly what my plan is."

Mook complained though, that Trump's refusal means he doesn't have a plan.

"He lashed out at our nation's generals when he was asked for details," said Mook.

Mook, also appearing on MSNBC's "Morning Joe" program, commented on a statement Clinton made that it was a mistake to vote to authorize force in Iraq in 2003.

"What she said in the past is that she was given faulty intelligence, and that certain people were able to influence the intelligence that was being seen in a way that didn't give people the full picture that they needed to make this decision," said Mook. "So, what she was saying last night is that we need to make sure that never happens again."

He said he believes Clinton takes each of the situations uniquely and looks at them, but still, it is apparent how much experience the former secretary of state brings to the race.

"We saw, once again, that Donald Trump is completely unfit to be commander-in-chief," said Mook. "It's totally unclear at any time what he's thinking, what he believes. The facts shift around like quicksand and that's not what we need as our next commander-in-chief. We really saw those differences on display. He didn't come prepared to answer the questions and, in fact, when he was pressed, you know, he attacked our generals and he showered more praise on Vladimir Putin. This is not who is ready to be commander-in-chief."

Mook also commented that Clinton said the same thing that she has said for some time about her email controversy - it was a mistake and that she would do things differently.

"She's taking responsibility for it," said Mook. "I think the voters have heard a lot about this at this point. So, she, obviously, wanted to spend as much time as she could talking about what she could do as commander-in-chief."

Clinton also said during the forum that she would never again introduce troops into Iraq, but Mook said what she meant was that she does not think it is appropriate to get into another ground war.

As for the race, it's tight now and the Clinton campaign believes it will get tighter, said Mook.

"We don't build a big ground game and build all the infrastructure we have here at our headquarters and around the country because we think the race is going to be easy," he said. "We build it because we think it is going to be hard."
