Democratic vice presidential nominee Tim Kaine on Sunday defended running mate Hillary Clinton after fact-checkers blasted her comments about the investigation into her private email server.

{mosads}“I have heard Hillary Clinton say over and over again when I’ve been sitting next to her and when I’ve watched her on TV that, with respect to the emails, ‘I made a mistake, and I’ve learned something, and I wouldn’t do it again.’ And I’ve heard her apologize,” the Virginia senator said on NBC’s “Meet the Press.”

Kaine said Clinton and “Fox News Sunday” host Chris Wallace were “sort of talking past each other” last week when Clinton claimed that FBI Director James Comey had called her statements about the server “truthful”

“She was saying what Director Comey acknowledged to be true, that, when she spoke to the FBI, when she was talking to the FBI. The FBI thought her answers in that setting were truthful,” Kaine said. “Chris might have been asking her a different question. But the bottom line is this. She made a mistake and she said over and over again, ‘I made a mistake, and I’ve learned from it, and I’m going to fix it, and I apologize for it.’ “

“I know that this is something that she’s learned from, and we’re going to be real transparent, absolutely,” he added.
