Clinton will be no different then others before her moving into the White House….

In the final sprint of her campaign, troubled by an F.B.I. inquiry and narrowing polls, Hillary Clinton has held tightly to a handful of advisers who have spent their careers protecting her interests, defending her reputation, and at times sullying it — and their own.

And if she wins on Tuesday, the most telling test of Mrs. Clinton’s transition back to power will arrive quickly: After a campaign season often defined by voters’ weariness with and distrust of her, which old hands will — or should — follow her into the Oval Office?

Almost no top adviser has been left untouched by the two central firestorms of Mrs. Clinton’s candidacy: the inquiry into her use of a private email server as secretary of state and the WikiLeaks hack of the email account of John D. Podesta, her campaign chairman.

The unvarnished view of infighting in the stolen documents is unlikely to bother Mrs. Clinton much, friends say. The political wisdom of importing excess baggage to the executive branch is another matter.

 

Huma Abedin, one of Mrs. Clinton’s most trusted advisers, in August. She has become entangled in an F.B.I. investigation of her estranged husband, Anthony D. Weiner,  and his lewd messages.

Jake Sullivan, Mrs. Clinton’s campaign policy director, has faced questions over whether he mishandled classified information in the course of his round-the-clock email traffic with Mrs. Clinton at the State Department, an issue that could shadow him as he moves into what is expected to be a key White House role, perhaps national security adviser or chief of staff.

Mr. Podesta, who has been with the Clintons since the 1990s and is a candidate for a cabinet post, has been singed by the publication of his private correspondence. So has Neera Tanden, a former domestic policy adviser to Mrs. Clinton, who took an acid pen to some of Mrs. Clinton’s closest aides in emails to Mr. Podesta, her friend.

Mrs. Clinton has plenty of other choices who have been unscathed by the email affairs, including Michèle A. Flournoy, a front-runner for defense secretary, and William J. Burns, who is on a short list for secretary of state.

But allies have long viewed Mrs. Clinton’s dependence on a small handful of aides with deep concern, lamenting the decades-old reluctance of her and her husband, former President Bill Clinton, to eject anyone from their political lives for good…

Democrats Release Cheryl Mills ‘private’ Benghazi testimony…Supporting Clinton….

The House Republicans only released part’s of the Clinton’s long time friend and legal advisor….

The Democratic House members of the House Select Committee on Benghazi, following top Democrat on the Committees Rep Cumming (D-Maryland) have released a public letter pointing to more of Mills testimony that supports Hillary Clinton in the Benghazi incident….Clinton will appear before the committee this month…The committee hearings have lasted longer than just about ANY on record and have been called political by probable incoming GOP Speaker of the House Rep Kevin McCarthy of California….

In the letter, Reps. Elijah Cumming (D-MD), Adam Smith (D-WA), Adam Schiff (D-CA), Linda Sanchez (D-CA), and Tammy Duckworth (D-IL), said that the way Republicans on the committee went about their work shows how political their investigation has been.

“Although some Republicans attempted to explain away Rep. McCarthy’s admission, it reflected exactly what has been going on within the Select Committee for the past year-and-a-half,” the letter continues. “It has held no hearings of any kind since January, and it has completely abandoned its plans to hear public testimony from top defense and intelligence officials so Republicans can focus almost exclusively on Hillary Clinton.”

The Democratic members of the panel then accused the Republican members of using “a series of selective leaks of inaccurate and incomplete information in an effort to attack Secretary Clinton with unsubstantiated or previously debunked allegations.”

In particular, the letter claims that the committee unfairly portrayed its private interview with former Clinton staffer Cheryl Mills by demanding that the interview be treated as classified information and then leaking parts of the interview to the press. The Democratic members included previously unreported excerpts of the interview with Mills in the letter, and they told Gowdy that the State Department and Mills’ lawyers have five days to identify parts of the interview that should remain private before making the entire transcript public.

Note….

Rep. McCarthy admittance that the hearings ARE political have embolden the Democrats and Clinton campaign to begin a public pushback against the Republicans in the media….

Cheryl Mills…The one person the Clinton’s really trust….

Politico does a good piece on Cheryl Mills, the lawyer that got Bill Clinton thru the impeachment , and has been a steady friend and worker for for Hillary Clinton, that can and will say no to her , if need be….

The piece was done in rsponse to the recent email dump from Hillary, that reaveals a close relationship between Clinton and Mills….

Cheryl Mills, Clinton’s 50-year-old former chief of staff at the State Department and a family attorney dating back to the early ’90s, stands out for her uniquely unvarnished communications with the boss.

She can be brusque, sometimes responding to Clinton’s questions with a simple “y,” as if she is too busy to finish typing the three-letter word.

She’s not always available, often unable to immediately take a call or email from Clinton on the weekend because she is at physical therapy, or getting home from the pool, or participating in an Easter egg hunt with her family.

And she can be irreverent, joking to Clinton in a 2009 email about Clinton’s dancing skills, “you shake your tail feathers, girl.”

When kudos are traded between Clinton and Mills, it’s more often Clinton who is complimenting her aide than the other way around. What is most striking about Mills’ correspondence compared with anything else found in Clinton’s inbox is that she appears to treat Clinton like an equal — which appears to be a rarity in Clinton’s world. That posture stands in great contrast to the sycophantic praise, or deferential pose, that many of her staff and outside allies used when communicating with Clinton.

A Hillary for President machine is rising….

Hillary Clinton has NOT delared her intension to run for President in 2016…

But that is NOT stopping a quiet but steady building of a ‘outside’ organization’s for her campaign….

Meet the shadow campaign for Hillary Rodham Clinton.

Just beneath the surface, and without evidence of direct involvement by the Clintons themselves, a Clinton machine is whirring to life. A series of self-started, independent ventures are adding up to a sweeping effort to unite all levels of the Democratic establishment behind a candidacy that backers hope and trust they’ll have a chance to support.

“We want to make sure we’re ready for her if she decides to run,” said Stephanie Schriock, president of EMILY’s List, which is running the “Madam President” event in Iowa and has similar events planned for New Hampshire and Nevada in the months to come. “We want to be prepared to do all we can to break through that glass ceiling.”

Several people close to the Clinton camp insist there is no puppet-master coordinating political efforts for the former secretary of state. That means that while some of what’s being done is for Clinton’s benefit, it’s less clear that it’s being done on her behalf.

But a series of prominent Democrats aligned with the Clintons – Harold Ickes, James Carville, Ann Lewis, Cheryl Mills, and Craig Smith among them – are acting as facilitators, channeling friends and allies toward entities that are working for a possible candidacy, according to numerous Democrats in and around the Clinton orbit.

Clinton herself is doing little publicly or privately to tip her hand about 2016. Associates say she’s mostly focused on speaking engagements and writing a memoir that will publish next year. Little news emanates from a tiny “transition office” she set up in Washington to ease her out of the State Department and on to new ventures; that office declined to comment on this topic.

Yet Clinton is not discouraging efforts to put outside campaign pieces in place early, according to those working on behalf of her possible candidacy. Her occasional public comments on the topic reinforce the notion that she’s comfortable with what’s going on.

“Let me say this, hypothetically speaking, I really do hope that we have a woman president in my lifetime,” Clinton said at a speaking engagement in Toronto in June.
