I looked at the tape there’s not even a change of expression on her face… I don’t discard people. I stay with people. That’s why I stay with this country. That’s why I stay with a lot of people that are treated unfairly. A lot of people are looking at [the video] and saying, ‘How can anybody be charged?’ She was actually — she’s grabbing at me and he is acting as an intermediary trying to block her from doing that. The news conference was over. It was done. It was finished. And she was running up and grabbing and asking questions. You’re not supposed to be doing that.”
