Hillary Clinton reportedly helped protect a senior adviser to her 2008 presidential campaign after accusations that he repeatedly sexually harassed a young subordinate.

The New York Times reported Friday on the incident, revealing how Clinton allegedly intervened to help keep the adviser, Burns Strider, on board.

According to the Times, the complaint was made by a 30-year-old Clinton staffer who shared an office with Strider. She reportedly told a campaign official that Strider had rubbed her shoulders inappropriately, kissed her on the forehead and sent suggestive emails.

Clinton’s 2008 campaign manager, Patti Solis Doyle, reportedly recommended Clinton fire him. But sources told The Times he was kept on the campaign at Clinton's request.

Instead, Strider was ordered to receive counseling and lost several weeks of pay, while the young woman was shifted to a new role.

An FBI informant involved in the controversial Uranium One deal has told congressional committees that Moscow paid millions to a U.S. lobbying firm in a bid to influence then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton by helping former President Bill Clinton’s charities during the Obama administration. The Hill first reported late Wednesday that informant Douglas Campbell gave a 10-page statement to the Senate Judiciary Committee, House Intelligence Committee and House Oversight and Government Reform Committee, and was interviewed for several hours behind closed doors by committee staff. :cuss: Campbell said Russian executives told him that Moscow was hiring APCO Worldwide in an effort to influence the Obama administration and Hillary Clinton. Campbell said Russian nuclear officials “told me at various times that they expected APCO to apply a portion of the $3 million annual lobbying fee it was receiving from the Russians to provide in-kind support for the Clinton’s Global Initiative. The contract called for four payments of $750,000 over twelve months,” Campbell said in the statement. “APCO was expected to give assistance free of charge to the Clinton Global Initiative as part of their effort to create a favorable environment to ensure the Obama administration made affirmative decisions on everything from Uranium One to the US-Russia Civilian Nuclear Cooperation agreement.”

Not a surprise. I’d bet the same people were making generous donations to the bush family too, only difference if they were out of power

Is that a joke? Half of those people I never heard of and more than half of the complaint seem out of a episode of Person of Interest.

The only complaint that I didn’t know about was the phishing of Bernie Sanders donors, only reason I believe this I remember reports of hinky Hillary fund raising that had to be refunded to the donors credit cards. Very close to a scam where they tried to keep charging low dollar amounts every month and not be noticed on the billing statement.

No idea. It may be thrown out of court. I know it's not the first fraud lawsuit to be filed against the DNC.

imo they loaded it with as many charges in hopes of finding standing to proceed. Might backfire.
Other odd thing is if those phishing fraud charges are true wouldn’t the FBI be investigating? Although given the people hired to maintain the DNC and congressional computer system they seem crooked as can be.

Best thing for the democrats would be to let the suit happen and purge the old guard. Donna Brazile has the right idea, but the party seems stuck rehashing 2016.
