8:04 am
preselected reporters at the national association of black and hispanic journalists convention in washington. >> clinton's last formal news conference was last december in iowa, more than 240 days ago. clinton said on friday she might have, quote, short circuited it. her public answers about her private e-mail servers, but she said she never lied. fbi director james comey said in july a small number of clinton's e-mails bore markings that classified information. >> he did say there were three e-mails that were marked classified at the time. is that an inconsistency? >> well, here is what -- here are the facts behind that as well. you know that i preside -- i sent over 30,000 e-mails to the state department that were work related e-mails. director comey said that only 3
8:05 am
resembling classified markers. the three e-mails out of the 30,000 did not have the appropriate markings. and it was therefore reasonable to conclude that anyone, including myself, would have not suspected that they were classified. >> ed o'keefe of the washington post. thank you for being here and on behalf of all of us, we encourage you to do this more often with reporters across country. [ applause ]. specially those news organizations that travel the country with you everywhere you go. a majority of voters consistently say frankly they trust you. and they don't how would you lead a nation where a majority of americans mistrust you? >> i take this seriously. don't doubt that. i take it seriously. it doesn't make me feel good when people say those things,

8:08 am
he's -- the title of donald trump speeches are not always what donald trump speeches are about. he could announce he i going to talk about gal lay owe's telescope or something and then a baby would cry and he has a way of topping his own stories. but i think in this case we'll have to wait and see what he has to say. his advisers are desperately trying to get him back on track to talk about something other thom remarks that he keeps getting deeper and deeper in trouble. and this is now beginning to be reflected in these polls. >> what about this on the other side of the aisle? a new washington post abc news poll shows trump with four-point lead among independent voters. those are the voters that will help decide this election. >> that is the one bright spot because every other thing in that poll seems to favor hillary clinton. i mean, she is just leading everywhere.

8:10 am
losing the senate than they are about whether or not they win the white house. they're really, really worried. here is how serious it is. i had a former cabinet officer in the republican administration tell me last week he was calling around and trying to get together a group to go talk to trump and not as an intervention but to say it would be best for all concerned if you resigned from but we know it's not going to happen. but the fact that people are talking that way just tells you how worried they are rht now about this. >> bob, always good to see you at the table. the new star of "hamilton" will be here in studio ahead. javier mun december shows how he became a founding father of the
