Trudeau was asked by NBC News State Department Producer Abigail Williams, [relevant remarks begin around 13:15] “Do you have any response to criticism by some that suggest there was a relationship between the Clinton Foundation and the State Department at the time? There was an email that came out in this recent set that is between the — an executive at the Clinton Foundation and Huma Abedin and Cheryl Mills where he is requesting to set up a meeting between a billionaire donor and the US ambassador to Lebanon.”

They HAVE to be very careful when they speak.
VERY carefupr
They could end up being called to testify and their prior statements better match up.
Which is a hard thing to do when you've committed crimes and covered them up in a conspiracy to evade prosecution.
Why do you think Hillary doesn't answer questions from reporters or hold press conferences (not to be confused with "fawning adoration events" where the toughest question is "what's your favorite Beatle's song?")?
It's a tough way to live life. Its going to be a lot tougher behind bars. Comey realizes that he threw away a lifetime of integrity and reputation when he was forced (the right term) to let a criminal go free and run for President. He won't forget THAT.
Keep cheering.
