Secretary Clinton for the Defense

It is a ludicrous idea: that a former Secretary of State should feel impelled to come to the defense of a former ambassador (to a huge, powerful country) against the president's wimpy response to a dictator.  These are not normal times. Putin's demand was outrageous. Trump's response was, to quote Susan Rice, "Beyond outrageous."

And in true diplomatic form:

Waterloo! It's Coming!

Trump was in the UK the past few days.  Meanwhile ... back at the ranch ...

Remember this?


Well now this! 

Read: Mueller indictment against 12 Russian spies for DNC hack

It comes days before President Trump’s summit with Russian leader Vladimir Putin.

Special counsel Robert Mueller just indicted 12 Russian intelligence officers, accusing them of interfering in the 2016 US presidential election.
They are charged with hacking the computer networks of members of Hillary Clinton’s campaign, the Democratic National Committee, and the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee. They allegedly coordinated to release damaging information to sway the election under the names “DCLeaks” and “Guccifer 2.0.” However, Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein to. ld reporters that it’s unclear if their efforts changed the outcome of the election.
Read the indictments >>>>
(Proof he's an amateur or, really, a puppet.  Experienced dictators know better than to leave home while a sh*tstorm is brewing at home. Even Putin knows he is in too deep and doesn't give a fig. THAT should light a fire under some kettles.)

Hillary Clinton: What we've been up to at Onward Together


When my friend Howard Dean and I first talked about forming a new organization, it was because we were blown away by the energy and commitment shown by activists -- new and old -- in the aftermath of the 2016 election. We asked ourselves: What can we do to help them?
Onward Together was formed as a way to support and connect the groups that are doing the work that absolutely needs to be done right now -- from mobilizing voters to encouraging and training new activists to recruiting people who are ready to run for office themselves. In 2017, we partnered with 11 organizations headed up by by smart, passionate leaders. We offer funding and strategic advice, and connect them with resources.
And this spring, we finally had a chance to bring those leaders together in one place, and it was really something special.
Take a moment to watch the video we've made celebrating our first Onward Together convening.
The leaders who joined us in New York come from every background. Some of them have been doing this work for years, while some were motivated by the 2016 election. They have different interests and approaches, but all share a belief that our country can be made better by the people who love it.
I really hope you'll take a moment to watch this video, because I think you'll find these activists as inspiring as I do -- and I hope you'll learn more about a group you'd like to support yourself.
Onward!
Hillary

Hillary Clinton Welcomes Demand Justice to Onward Together

Given the news coming out of the Supreme Court this week, I wanted to introduce you to the newest group that Onward Together is partnering with.
Demand Justice organizes progressive activists and voters around protecting our federal courts. In the time since the announcement from Justice Kennedy regarding his plans to retire at the end of July, Demand Justice has motivated thousands of people across the country to make calls and join protests demanding that Senate Democrats promise not to vote to confirm any of Trump’s extreme right-wing likely nominees for Justice Kennedy’s seat on the Supreme Court.
Reproductive rights, voting rights, access to health care -- so many things we hold dear hang in the balance if the Supreme Court swings to the right. Our court system is one of the important tools we have for keeping our country just and fair. Please take a moment today to learn more about how Demand Justice plans to protect it.
Thank you,
Hillary
