Brooke Baldwin pursued Hillary Clinton flack Karen Finney on the 21 January 2016 edition of CNN Newsroom over her campaign's conspiracy theory that the intelligence community's inspector general purposely leaked the latest revelation about the highly-classified information on Mrs. Clinton's server. When Finney cited unnamed officials who alleged that the I.G. "unfairly targeted Hillary Clinton," Baldwin interjected, "What would the motivation be for this inspector general to do this?" When the Democratic operative asserted that "they want to take down Hillary Clinton," the anchor twice asked, "What is your proof for that?"
