Pro-Clinton Super PAC Ready for Hillary will be walking a delicate legal tightrope in the coming months as it prepares to transfer some of its most valuable resources to Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign, campaign finance experts tell the Washington Free Beacon.
A Ready for Hillary strategy meeting at the Sheraton Hotel in New York’s Times Square late last week drew hundreds of Democratic donors, strategists and politicians, who talked transition strategy behind closed doors.
While the strategy meetings were closed to reporters, Ready for Hillary staffers and surrogates held question-and-answer sessions throughout the day with a select group of journalists. The Washington Free Beacon was not allowed to attend the briefings.
A Ready for Hillary spokesperson told the Free Beacon that the event was “not a cattle-call” and was only open to media outlets that were specifically invited.
Invited media outlets included the New York Times, USA Today, and CNN, which reported on a pro-Clinton video played at the event.
