Hillary Clinton has spent most of the months since her humiliating loss to Donald Trump in the presidential election in hiding. This week, however, she resurfaced to make a chilling move…
Buzfeed reported that Clinton just hired two political operatives from her 2016 presidential campaign to help manage Onward Together, the project she founded this spring with former governor Howard Dean to fund and support a coalition of Democratic groups led by activists and organizers. Both Emmy Ruiz and Adam Parkhomenko had big roles on Clinton’s campaign. Ruiz delivered key victories as state director in Nevada during the primary and in Colorado during the general election while Parkhomenko worked in headquarters as her director of grassroots engagement before moving to the Democratic National Committee.
Dean confirmed the hires and said that they are still in the process vetting groups to add to the coalition, which already includes organizations such as Swing Left, Emerge America, and Run For Something. The rest of the team includes Dean, the former Vermont governor and DNC chair, along with Judith McHale, an undersecretary under Clinton at the State Department, and Amy Rao, a Silicon Valley businesswoman and a longtime supporter and donor.
One Democrat said that Clinton has already received at least one initial request to help New Jersey gubernatorial candidate Phil Murphy. In next year’s election, there could be other opportunities in the 23 congressional districts that Clinton carried at the top of the ticket but Republicans held down-ballot.
This came after almost two dozen Republican lawmakers called on Trump’s Justice Department to appoint a second special counsel to investigate the slew of 2016 campaign controversies involving Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama’s White House.
Fox News reported that House Judiciary Committee Chairman Bob Goodlatte, R-Va, and various GOP committee colleagues sent a letter to Attorney General Jeff Sessions and Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein warning that these questions cannot “be allowed to die on the vine” amid the Russia probe firestorm.
“The American public has a right to know the facts – all of them – surrounding the election and its aftermath,” they wrote. “We urge you to appoint a second special counsel to ensure these troubling, unanswered questions are not relegated to the dustbin of history.”
