NICOLLE WALLACE: Is there any peril for the Democrats in smearing a committee that has uncovered if not an illegal server, a questionable one, and with an ongoing FBI investigation?

JAMES CARVILLE: I'm not -- that smeared himself. Does anybody really think this is not politically motivated? Okay, that this is what Kevin McCarthy said, this is what Hanna said


CARVILLE: Can I finish? What did the lifelong Republican said, “it was just a witch hunt.” That's all they did and sat around and it was all about to get Hillary. Trey Gowdy said on Fox on Chris Wallace that the emails really didn't have anything to do with Benghazi. Let me ask you a question. Is this the seventh or the eighth committee to investigate Benghazi?

WALLACE: I've read in all your quotes seven committees. 

CARVILLE: OK it's the seventh, it's not the eighth. I thought it was the eighth, it's the seventh committee.

WALLACE: But then it's political, does that make it untrue that the FBI is looking at the server? 


CARVILLE: So we agree that it's a totally political operation. Now we should go from there. They will get to ask her about that. She'll be right there, and she'll do fine. But we now know this is a politically motivated, we agree this is a politically motivated, taxpayer funded political operation totally.
