On Fox News Sunday, Chris Wallace asked President Obama about Hillary Clinton's email controversy and he responded that she wouldn't knowingly do something to damage national security and that he guaranteed he wouldn't try to influence the justice department.
Joe Scarborough and the Morning Joe crew, joined with the likes of Karl Rove and George Will and thought it was an act of outright insanity! The MSNBC host was shocked, I tell you!

Mika, "He said believe me."
“He said he wasn’t going to talk to his attorney general about the pending investigation, but he just did. As he did back in October when he said, ‘No national security issues here, nothing to see, move along.'

As Halperin followed up with, "it seemed ill advised to say..." the panel broke out in laughter.
John Heilmann also concurred and thought it was "ill advised."
