WATCH: Rep. Grijalva Says Clinton Should "Get Rid Of It (Ties To Foundation)"

Arizona Rep. Raul Grijalva (D-CD3) - who is currently facing noone on the ballot either today or in November - told MSNBC's Tamron Hall that Democratic Presidential nominee Hillary Clinton should "cut off" ties with the Clinton Foundation.

The relationship between Clinton's State Department and the non-profit Clinton Foundation has been the subject of much discussion and allegations that Foundation donors often had a leg up on non-donors in dealing with the U.S. State Department.

Grijalva said that it has become "an extraneous matter" and that Clinton needs to focus on the critical issues.

"We've got to get rid of extraneous issues, and if this Foundation is an extraneous issue that goes to the heart of whether it's trust and transparency, then get rid of it. Because, there is so much on the table right now for the American people and for the future of this nation, that extraneous issues such as a Foundation which - if that is something that needs to be cut off, then it should be cut off.

Hall praised him for being one "of the few lawmakers" saying this.
