Hillary Clinton’s campaign, which has been wobbling all summer, went on the attack yesterday in a 700-word email to her supporters.
Clinton campaign communications director Jennifer Palmieri sought to reassure supporters that the FBI investigation into Hillary’s email server is nothing to worry about, and that many of the GOP contenders have had their own “email issues.”
“Many of the Republican candidates for president have done the same things for which they’re now criticizing Hillary,” Palmieri wrote, referring to governors Walker, Bush, Perry and Jindal.
“Look, this kind of nonsense comes with the territory of running for president. We know it, Hillary knows it, and we expect it to continue from now until Election Day,” Palmieri added.
“It’s okay. We’ll be ready. We have the facts, our principles, and you on our side. And it’s vital that you read and absorb the real story so that you know what to say the next time you hear about this around the dinner table or the water cooler.”
The timing and length of the email only underscores just how concerned the Clinton campaign is after months of negative news that has sent Hillary’s poll numbers plunging, raising doubts among Democrats as to her viability as their nominee in 2016.
