James Carville has returned to his role of defender of all things Clinton. Appearing on ABC's this week, hosted by his former fellow Clinton staffer George Stephanopoulos, Carville sought to dismiss the email scandal as a non-story. His defense was more revealing than he intended. Daniel Halper of the Weekly Standard:
Carville: I 'Suspect' Hillary Used Private Email to Avoid Congressional Oversight "What this is, is the latest in a continuation, and if you take it all and put it together, and you subtract 3.1415 from pi, you're left with not very much. And that's -- at the end of the day, so the Republicans can't pass a budget, alright, we got another investigation, just like we had the Whitewater, just like you go through the filegate, you go through travelgate, you go through seven or eight different congressional committees. And you wonder why the public is not following this? Because they know what it is. "It was something she did. It was legal. I suspect she didn't want [Republican congressman] Louie Gohmert rifling through her emails, which seems to me to be a kind of reasonable position for someone to take. It amounts to -- just like everything else before it, it amounts to nothing but a bunch of people flapping their jaws about nothing." The comment about Gohmert going through emails suggests Carville thinks Hillary Clinton set up the private email server to avoid congressional oversight.

Rep. Louie Gohmert announded on Fox and Friends this morning that he will challenge John Boehner for Speaker of the House:
Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-TX) announced on "Fox and Friends Weekend" this morning that he will challenge John Boehner for Speaker of the House when Congress returns to Washington this week. "We have heard from a lot of Republicans that said, ‘Gee, I would vote for somebody besides Speaker Boehner.’ But nobody will put their name out there as running, so there's nobody else to vote for,” Gohmert told Tucker Carlson. Gohmert said that changed yesterday when Rep. Ted Yoho (R-MN) announced his candidacy. Gohmert then announced that he too will be a candidate for Speaker. "A poll came out Friday saying 60-percent or more of Republicans in the country that voted in the last election, including independents who voted Republican, they want a change, they want a different Speaker," he said. Gohmert said as Speaker, he would fight Obama's amnesty plan tooth and nail, use the powers of the purse, have better government oversight and fight to defund ObamaCare.
