“Putting politics before principle, these Democrats are ‘Ready for Hillary’ regardless of how untrustworthy and reckless she’s found by voters or even the FBI,” said Emily Davis, Communications Director for Congressional Leadership Fund. “Democrats proudly embracing Hillary Clinton will have to explain to voters why they continue to stand by her record of scandals and dishonesty.”
