During in an interview on CNBC, Hillary Clinton’s campaign manager, Robby Mook, was asked to address a Politico report that claims progressives are targeting two possible Clinton appointees as not fit to serve in her administration.
The article claims, “Progressive operatives say they’ve targeted two potential Clinton appointments — Tom Nides as chief of staff and Lael Brainard as Treasury secretary or trade representative — to lay down early markers against Clinton. Pick them, they warn, and progressives will punish her.”
Mook laughed at the report and responded, “You know, I don’t know what to say, sometimes these, I don’t know what sources people have.”
CNBC’s Andrew Ross Sorkin pressed Mook, “My question is the business community would like to know if, in fact, business people are not going to be part of her inner circle?”
“I think Hillary will have people in her administration from across the spectrum of this country” Mook again dodged.
Mook’s answer probably is not too reassuring to progressive Bernie Sanders (I-VT) supporters who have been reluctant to back Clinton because of her close ties to Wall Street.
