<p>Wolf Blitzer refreshingly pursued Hillary Clinton on the 8 July 2016 edition of CNN&#39;s <em>The Lead</em> over her e-mail scandal. Blitzer twice quoted from FBI Director James Comey: &quot;You acted &mdash; in his words...in an &#39;extremely careless&#39; way in handling classified, sensitive information. Do you acknowledge you were extremely careless?&quot; He later asked, &quot;He said someone in your position as secretary of state should have known better...should you have known better? Mrs. Clinton stuck by her old talking points on the controversy, despite the fact that the FBI investigation&#39;s findings discredited them.</p>
