Kristen Welker stood out on the 5 August 2016 edition of NBC Nightly News as the only Big Three journalist that spotlighted how Hillary Clinton returned to using one of her discredited statements about her e-mail scandal. Welker reported that Clinton attempted to "clarify" her "debunked" spin on what FBI Director James Comey disclosed about the issue. She added that the Democrat "then [brought] back one of her previous explanations" — that she "never sent or received anything that was marked classified." The journalist countered this by playing a clip of Comey himself retorting, "That's not true."
