Andrea Mitchell: No ‘Smoking Gun’ in Podesta E-Mails, He’s a ‘Victim’ (NewsBusters)

On her MSNBC show on Wednesday, anchor Andrea Mitchell referred to the leaked e-mails from Hillary Clinton campaign chairman John Podesta as “an incredible, rich narrative of what was going on inside the campaign” but then asked New York Times reporter Amy Chozick “what do we see as the really, you know, smoking guns, if you will, in these e-mails?”

Amazingly, Chozick claimed there were none: “I mean, it's incredible insight into a campaign....In terms of a smoking gun, we haven't really seen one....certainly we haven't seen anything that, as the Trump campaign would like, to be sort of that smoking gun.”
