Clinton Criticizes Trump, Walker

Democratic donors are calling on her to stop ignoring Sanders.

Sept. 11, 2015, 10:48 a.m.

Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton (D) took swipes at real estate mogul Donald Trump (R) and Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker (R) during her trips to Ohio and Wisconsin on Thursday.  In Columbus, Clinton said she "would love" to debate Trump, and referenced him as "one particular candidate who just seems to delight in insulting women every chance he gets." (Columbus Dispatch)

In Milwaukee, Clinton said: "It seems to me just observing him that Governor Walker thinks because he busts unions, starves universities, guts public education, demeans women, scapegoats teachers, nurses and firefighters, he's some kind of tough guy on his motorcycle. A real leader. Well, that is not leadership. It looks like he just gets his marching orders from the Koch brothers and just goes down the list." (Milwaukee Journal Sentinel)

Meanwhile, Democratic donors are urging Clinton to stop ignoring Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT). "In private conference calls and closed fundraisers, some donors are telling Clinton’s brain trust something it certainly already knows: that Sanders’ rally shows no signs of slowing. He’s thrown some spiky roadblocks into what was once seen as her glide path to the nomination. And now it’s time, they say, for a strategy shift." (Politico)

CASTING HER CANDIDACY. Clinton said Thursday that she "pleads guilty" to being a moderate. (CNN)

BENGHAZI UPDATE. Bryan Pagliano, "Clinton's former staffer who worked on her personal email server, invoked his Fifth Amendment rights today and did not answer the House Select Committee on Benghazi's questions in a closed-door deposition." Pagliano "has notified several congressional committees and federal agencies probing Clinton’s private email use and server that he will take the Fifth to any questions, citing the ongoing FBI investigation into Clinton’s server." (ABC)

THE ELLEN DEGENERES PRIMARY. "In a Thursday epis­ode of The El­len Show, El­len De­Generes all but form­ally en­dorsed ... Clin­ton for pres­id­ent. Dur­ing a brief ques­tion and an­swer with the pres­id­en­tial can­did­ate, De­Generes gushed about Clin­ton’s re­cord on wo­men’s rights and hu­man rights." (National Journal)

"The House Oversight Committee is launching an investigation into the White House security clearance process, an inquiry that promises to put a spotlight on how President Donald Trump's senior adviser and son-in-law, Jared Kushner, overcame concerns to gain access to highly classified information." Others to be investigated are former staffer Seb Gorka, National Security Adviser John Bolton, former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn, former Deputy National Security Adviser K.T. McFarland, and former White House Staff Secretary Rob Porter.

THE DETAILS

"After spending weeks on the sideline, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) has entered the shutdown fray, striking an agreement with Minority Leader Charles Schumer (D-N.Y.) to vote on competing proposals to reopen the government. The two votes will happen on Thursday...Senators will first have an opportunity to go on the record on President Trump's proposal to extend legal protections for some immigrants for three years in exchange for $5.7 billion for a border wall....If (and when) that bill fails, McConnell will move on to… a 'clean' continuing resolution to reopen the government for three weeks, with no additional border wall money."
