Email shows Clinton campaign walking a fine line on fundraising

Email shows Clinton campaign walking a fine line on fundraisingThe day after announcing her candidacy last year, Hillary Clinton flew off to Iowa and, standing outside a small coffee shop, was asked by a reporter about what she had already signaled would be a big issue for her: overhauling the country’s “dysfunctional” campaign finance system to curb the influence of wealthy donors and special interests. “I don’t know,” Clinton replied with a shrug, as she walked into the coffee shop to campaign. Among the nuggets from the hacked emails posted by WikiLeaks is new evidence that, from the start, Clinton and her campaign operatives were plotting to aggressively exploit the loopholes in federal campaign laws by steering large sums of unregulated cash into supposedly independent super-PACs like Priorities USA.
