to linger. we're still more than a year out from election day and already there's a book as you alluded to that's criticizing her but it's part of a larger narrative for her critics about the money to her foundation. i think she is at some point going to have to respond to these allegations. it's part of again, a larger narrative about her involvement in washington, her time at the state department and using that politics and those connections. she's going to have to make the case that she's not crony but is well connected and that will help her accomplish her policy agenda goals. >> we just heard from john boehner about possibly using a subpoena. will these claims put more focus on the push to turn over her personal e-mails while she was serving at secretary of state. >> absolutely. i think there were even questions within the democratic party about her use of e-mail. the clinton world says they did not break any laws but i think
there are a lot of unanswered questions that again, she's going to have to at some point respond and detail and she said in a letter to lawmakers just a couple of days ago that she would like to have the congressional hearings and all of that dealt with as quickly as possible. she doesn't want to delay that because as we all know the longer this goes on the more it gets into election day. >> presidential hopeful ted cruz missed the vote for attorney general after being such a vocal opponent of her election. is he putting the campaign ahead of his dutys? >> that's the problems that folks who are running for office have. no matter who it is. they have to find the balance of life on the campaign trail versus fulfilling their duties. he says as we know that he voted for the cloture vote.
we'll see. we'll have this conversation closer to election day. >> especially if he misses other votes. thank you. have a good one. just ahead jimmy fallon channels his inner monte python. that is next. you know, in any job any profession image matters. i want some gray...but not too much. only touch of gray uses oxygen to gently blend away some gray but not all for that perfect salt and pepper look. satisfaction guaranteed. just you and the look you want. just for men touch of gray
