Hillary Clinton

Welcome to the Real Brooklyn Hillary Before Gentrification 
Real Brooklyn Cool
Clinton Said to Rent Brooklyn Space for Campaign Headquarters (NYT) It’s official: Hillary Rodham Clinton has chosen a campaign headquarters in Brooklyn. All that’s left is for her to say what she is running for. * Hillary Clinton Campaign Signs Lease in Brooklyn Heights (DNAINFO) *De Blasio declares he will seek reelection for second term in 2017 (NYDN) Less than a year and a half into his mayoralty, Mayor de Blasio made it clear Thursday he would seek reelection for a second term in 2017. De Blasio made the impromptu declaration at a news conference when asked if his interest in national politics — including planned trips to Iowa and Nebraska later this month — indicated he’s eyeing national office. “I intend to run for reelection of mayor of New York City. That’s the only thing I’m running for,” de Blasio said.* Hillary Clinton’s campaign signs lease for Brooklyn Heights(NYDN)* Business Owners in Brooklyn Heights Start Subtle Lobbying of Clinton Campaign (NYT) As the presumptive Democratic candidate for president moves into Brooklyn Heights, the neighborhood merchants are rolling out the welcome mat.

Can Hillary Find Ways to Stop Brooklyn's Gentrification Pushing the Poor and Middle Class Out of the Borough
Errol Louis writes in the Daily News that it would be a“shame” if Clinton travels the country claiming a connection to “Brooklyn’s dynamism” and diversity without seriously engaging its activists:

De Blasio will create liberal 'contract' to influence 2016  (CrainsNY)* De Blasio convened a group of progressive leaders at Gracie Mansion to announce a new national effort to force his signature issue of income inequality into the upcoming presidential campaign. The group, which included Connecticut Gov. Dannel Malloy and Sen. Sherrod Brown of Ohio, will gather again in May to draft a “template” that the mayor likened to the Contract with America that Republicans used to great effect in 1994.* De Blasio DIps Toe Into Presidential Politics With Meetingof Liberals via @Dnainfo

Meet Hillary Advance Man On Income Inequality for 2016 
DE BLASIO’S 2016 PUSH -- Washington Post’s Dan Balz: “New York Mayor Bill de Blasio plans to host a meeting of leading progressive elected officials and activists at Gracie Mansion on Thursday with the explicit goal of forcing the issue of income inequality to the forefront of the national political debate and the 2016 elections. … De Blasio: ‘As a Democrat, I am very disappointed that my party has not spoken with a clearer voice on this issue. … On presidential candidates … I think many of us feel profound dissatisfaction at the state of the debate in general. I cannot identify any declared candidate who is presenting a holistic vision here.’ … “De Blasio said Thursday’s gathering will include about 12 to 15 people from around the country. He said a list of names will be made available after the meeting. Among those expected to attend are Connecticut Gov. Dannel P. Malloy (D), Ohio Sen. Sherrod Brown (D) and Nobel Prize-winning author Toni Morrison. One person who will not be there is Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.), a leading advocate for a more robust set of politics to reduce the power of big banks and financial institutions, and address the needs of middle class families. De Blasio said a scheduling conflict will prevent Warren from attending.” * De Blasio plans to launch a national campaign on income inequality to help spur what he described as a “progressive” version of the Republicans’ 1990s-era Contract with America, theJournal writes

Obama adviser behind leak of Hillary Clinton’s email scandal(NYP) Obama senior adviser Valerie Jarrett leaked to the press details of Hillary Clinton’s use of a private e-mail address during her time as secretary of state, sources tell me. But she did so through people outside the administration, so the story couldn’t be traced to her or the White House. In addition, at Jarrett’s behest, the State Department was ordered to launch a series of investigations into Hillary’s conduct at Foggy Bottom, including the use of her expense account, the disbursement of funds, her contact with foreign leaders and her possible collusion with the Clinton Foundation. Six separate probes into Hillary’s performance have been ­going on at the State Department. I’m told that the e-mail scandal was timed to come out just as Hillary was on the verge of formally announcing that she was running for president — and that there’s more to come. **Members of Bill Clinton’s camp say the former president suspects the White House is the source of the leak and is furious. * Michelle Obamablocked from releasing video commenting on the 2011 shooting of Gabby Giffords:book (NYDN)
