<p>On the 9 October 2015 edition of CNN's <i>Legal View</i>, Ashleigh Banfield did her best to downplay Hillary Clinton's ongoing e-mail scandal. Banfield asked Democratic strategist Robert Zimmerman if Bernie Sanders would bring up the issue at the upcoming Democratic presidential debate. When Zimmerman claimed that "any Democrat who resorts to reciting Republican talking points is going to hurt themselves," the anchor replied, "So...you don't think he's ever going to touch the e-mail scandal – or, it's not even a scandal. It's really a controversy. But 'scandal' is the Republicans' word for it. So far, no one has determined there's any scandal there."</p>
