Hillary Clinton’s aides helping her during her unsuccessful presidential bid in 2008 have reportedly kept a list of so-called traitors, which is outlined in a new book.
Her team is now rumored to have created an Excel spreadsheet of those who betrayed her during that time, even rating the Democrats in Congress on a number scale of 1-7 (7 being the worst).
This new information was mentioned in the book HRC: State Secrets and the Rebirth of Hillary Clinton, by The Hill’s Amie Parnes and Politico’s Jonathan Allen.
Those who made the political “hit list” include John Kerry, Jay Rockefeller, Bob Casey and Patrick Leahy, Fox News reports.
“We wanted to have a record of who endorsed us and who didn’t, and of those who endorsed us, who went the extra mile and who was just kind of there,” said a member of Hillary’s campaign team. “And of those who didn’t endorse us, those who understandably didn’t endorse us because they are [Congressional Black Caucus] members or Illinois members. And then, of course, those who endorsed him but really should have been with her … that burned her.”
The politicians who scored a 7 on the list were mostly people who backed President Obama instead of Clinton.
