Clinton Already Plotting For Trump

It’s tunnel-vision time for Hillary Clinton as she battles Bernie Sanders here — but she’s casting some serious side-eye in Donald Trump’s direction.

After months of laughing off Trump — and assuming his ascent would propel the Republican Party to a 1964-style wipeout — her campaign and its allies have begun to steer time and resources into framing lines of attack against the blustery billionaire, even if there’s still considerable confusion over how to attack 2016’s top-of-the-food-chain predator.

“There’s plenty of material out there,” said longtime Clinton confidant James Carville. “We just have to figure it all out.”

With her campaign intensely focused on fending off an unexpectedly strong challenge from Sanders, the man tasked with leading off an eventual anti-Trump offensive is David Brock, the former Clinton foe turned ally who spearheaded the first sharp attacks against the Vermont socialist.

In November, a subsidiary of the Democratic National Committee paid the Brock-run American Bridge $144,000 for “research services,” according to elections filings. That research was devoted almost entirely to building a “Trump Book,” a compendium of clips and other records that could be used for future attacks, a campaign official familiar with the situation told POLITICO. In early December, the Clinton campaign paid the group a further $22,000 for similar work, the official added, and another David Brock-affiliated group, Correct the Record, began a cursory vetting of Trump over the summer.

    She will have plenty of time to think of blow job Bill and Trump, while she is in jail. She can see how a real American man runs this country and how much better the world and the USA will be one he cleans up all the messes she and BO and all the other dems have caused.

    This sounds like something that the republicans pride themselves at doing.

    • PAPI, PAPI CHULO

      IF THE DEMORATS START ATTACKING, THEN IT’S EVERY DEMORAT FOR HIMSELF. MR. TRUMP SHOULD RETURN FIRE AND SHOW NO MERCY. MR. TRUMP IS PROBABLY WELL PREPARED FOR ANY AND ALL CLINTUCKER SHENANIGANS.

        I think he’s got his hands full in his own backyard, instead of being concerned about something he has no control over at the moment.

    LMAO, so they think that they can find stuff to attack Trump, or Cruz with, go ahead, good luck with that. What are they going to find?, a bunch of fluff stuff, compared to the Hilda-Beast’s “stuff” they have nothing.
    When you left-wits dish it out, you better be able to take it too, because it will come back a thousand times harder. There will be no deals, and nothing will be untouchable.

    Build the book. Remember when the election process begins expect incoming from all directions. Who brought Bill’s penis problem to light and prompted responses from young women. Look at Hillary’s crowds and Donald’s crowds.

    When asked if she is dishonest who answered DA Do you realize this is the second time this woman put people at risk? First time got 4 people killed. May I suggest you make 3 more books.

      Bill’s not running. Better find a real effective counter measure, that one is not going to cut it.
