Libertarian VP Candidate Blows Republicans' Email Hopes To Smithereens

Former Massachusetts Governor Bill Weld explained why nothing will ever come of the GOP witchhunt.

Presidential and Vice Presidential candidates Gary Johnson and former Massachusetts Gov. William Weld joined Chuck Todd for an exclusive interview to launch their quixotic campaign to woo the Republican Party into Libertarian ranks.

For the most part, the interview covered the usual topics you'd expect from Libertarians. Privatize the VA, voucherize everything, get rid of the ACA and implement Health Savings Accounts instead, and more.

But then there was a moment where former Governor Weld shattered Republican dreams and Donald Trump's talking points about Hillary Clinton's email.

Weld changed the topic they were discussing and brought up the whole Hillary email hoo-ha, telling Chuck Todd it is going nowhere. When pressed by Todd on why he thought so, Weld replied, "I'm speaking as a former director of the criminal division of the Justice Department. There's no criminal intent, and with no criminal intent there's no indictment."

So there you go, Republicans. Your Libertarian challengers are blowing up your smear campaigns right and left.

Also, Bernie Sanders was right. No one cares about the damned emails.
