Democratic congressman warns that Hillary Clinton may have 'disqualified herself' from being president

In what Politico calls "the sharpest criticism of Hillary Clinton's email scandal yet from a Democratic member of Congress," Kentucky Rep. John Yarmuth (D-Ky.) said during a local television interview Wednesday night that he thinks Clinton's email scandal, in which she used a private email address and server while working as secretary or state, could potentially "upend her campaign."

Yarmuth, a five-term congressman, said that if Clinton "intentionally misled or lied to the American people and did something that was clearly against rules, and knowingly did it against rules, if that is the ultimate conclusion, then I think she has disqualified herself." He also said:

Clearly, she has handled it poorly from the first day. And, there's the appearance of dishonesty, if it's not dishonest.

Yarmuth also said, however, that he still expects Clinton to be the Dems' 2016 nominee. Watch the interview here.
