“I love Hillary,” Franken told Yahoo News Thursday. “I think she is very prepared to be president of the United States … and I think she has right to analyze what happened, but we do have to move on.”Franken’s comments come a day after Clinton ripped the Democratic National Committee (DNC) during the Code Conference in Ranch Palos Verdes, Calif.
“I mean, [the DNC] was bankrupt. It was on the verge of insolvency,” Clinton said. “Its data was mediocre to poor, nonexistent, wrong. I had to inject money into it.”
Clinton also derided the media’s coverage of the private email server she used during her tenure at the State Department.
“[It was] the biggest nothing-burger ever,” she said. “They covered it like it was Pearl Harbor. There was no law against it, no rule against it, nothing of that sort. I was very responsible and not at all careless.”
Critics argued that Clinton may have jeopardized sensitive national intelligence by using a personal storage device at State.
Franken also argued during his interview that one way to move on was to work for the people who voted for Trump.
