Another Clinton Insider At Odds With Hillary Clinton On Trade


For the second time in two days, another top Clinton ally, former Secretary of State Madeleine Albright, is breaking with Secretary Clinton on the trade deal she not long ago referred to as the “gold standard.” This once again highlights Secretary Clinton’s flip-flop on the Trans-Pacific Partnership for what it is: a cynical political ploy designed to fend off socialist Senator Bernie Sanders. Madeleine Albright joins Clinton moneyman, Terry McAuliffe, on a growing list of Clinton allies who have broken with Secretary Clinton on trade.

Albright will join President Obama at the White House to help sell TPP to the American people. She will be part of a bipartisan group that includes James Baker, Brent Scowcroft, and Mike Mullen, who will highlight the national security benefits that come with approving the Trans-Pacific Partnership.
