Rep. Barbara Lee: ‘Clear firewall’ between Congressional Black Caucus and PAC backing Clinton

Rep. Barbara Lee (D-CA) emphasized in an interview on Thursday that Hillary Clinton’s endorsement by the Congressional Black Caucus PAC does not constitute one from the caucus itself.

“The Congressional Black Caucus PAC is a PAC that supports candidates,” Lee told Democracy Now host Amy Goodman. “It raises money, and it helps candidates win elections. And there’s a clear distinction between that—as I said earlier, we have a Republican in the Congressional Black Caucus. That has nothing to do with the Congressional Black Caucus PAC.”

Lee added that she is not a member of the PAC, and repeated her assertion that “there’s a clear firewall. There’s a clear distinction.”

The congresswoman’s statement came shortly before fellow Rep. Keith Elison (D-MN) — who has endorsed Clinton’s Democratic primary opponent, Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) — responded to the PAC’s support of the former Secretary of State by stating on Twitter that caucus members were not consulted regarding the issue, as seen below:

“The point it that endorsements should be the product of a fair open process,” Ellison wrote. “Didn’t happen.”

Bernie Sanders Tweets His Gratitude to New Hampshire Voters.

Trump, Sanders Sweep to Victory in New Hampshire Primaries: NBC News
by CARRIE DANN

Republican Donald Trump and Democrat Bernie Sanders will win the New Hampshire primaries, NBC News projects, outcomes that are certain to send further shockwaves through the anxious political establishments of both parties.

Since he began to dominate the race after his entry last summer, Trump has bewildered party regulars with his bombastic style and his appeal to GOP voters disaffected with more traditional candidates. His win Tuesday, following a second-place finish in Iowa last week, seals Trump's position as a legitimate candidate for the Republican nomination and all but ensures a more prolonged primary fight as the GOP candidates turn their attention to the South Carolina primary in less than two weeks.

Establishment-minded Republicans had hoped that the state's notoriously choosy voters would coalesce around one of their preferred candidates rather than affirming Trump, but no single challenger has emerged at the head of the pack. Ohio Gov. John Kasich, Texas Sen. Ted Cruz, Florida Sen. Marco Rubio and former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush were in a fight for second place as the votes continue to come in Tuesday.

Sanders, a self-described democratic socialist who hails from neighboring Vermont, had battled fiercely with consensus front-runner Hillary Clinton this week since losing by a razor-thin margin in last week's Iowa contest. Clinton cast Sanders as an unrealistic zealot for progressive purity without adequate experience to govern a divided country, and former President Bill Clinton suggested that some of Sanders' supporters used sexist language in opposing his wife's presidential bid.

For his part, Sanders hammered Clinton for her ties to Wall Street and big business, portraying her as beholden to callous and corrupt corporate interests who disdain the middle class. A contentious head-to-head debate last week on MSNBC in New Hampshire only fueled the race further.
