Upcoming on Hillary Clinton's Agenda: A Clinton Foundation Fundraiser

August is the month that finds Hillary Clinton in the Hamptons at  least for part of the month.  Bill Clinton has routinely rented a mansion in East Hampton for a few weeks of the past several summers and has celebrated his birthday there.   Last year, Hillary had an especially abbreviated 10-day stay sandwiched between an extended farewell tour of Africa and a trip to the Pacific starting with the tiny Cook Islands.

According to Maggie Haberman at Politico, there is an invitation circulating indicating that once again the Clintons are planning some R & R in the Hamptons this summer.
