3:33 am
dispassionate investigators, but nevertheless, having it continue to be bandied around is -- is deeply distressing to me. you know, i have, would imagine i thought more about what happened than all of you put together. clinton seems determined not to show the kind of anger that makes great fodder for negative campaign ads. any time her voice raises she quickly self corrects. we are moving into hour nine of the hearing, scott and shows no soon of ending soon. scott pelley spoke with john dickerson of face the nation. >> john, high stakes day for hillary clinton what was your impression? >> never going to be a great day for her. never as her portion she want to talk about. two political pitfalls. the first was any new revelation that called her leadership into question. as secretary of state. the second pitfall a moment
