Clinton's Keystone Defense Continues To Unravel

- July 30, 2015

Dan Merica Tweeted That Clinton Claimed She "Did Not Work On" The Trans-Pacific Partnership. DAN MERICA: "Clinton to me on why she comments on TPP but not Keystone: 'I did not work on TPP. I advocated for a multi-national trade agreement...'" (Dan Merica, Twitter Feed, 7/30/15)

BUT CLINTON WAS HEAVILY INVOLVED IN WORKING ON TPP

Clinton Took "A Leading Part In Drafting The Trans-Pacific Partnership." "She's pressed the case for U.S. business in Cambodia, Singapore, Vietnam, Indonesia, and other countries in China's shadow. She's also taken a leading part in drafting the Trans-Pacific Partnership, a free trade pact that would give U.S. companies a leg up on their Chinese competitors." (Elizabeth Dwoskin and Indira Laksmanan, "How Hillary Clinton Created A U.S. Business-Promotion Machine," Bloomberg, 1/10/13)

National Security Advisor Susan Rice Said That "Negotiating" The Trans-Pacific Partnership Was One Of Clinton's "Biggest Achievements" While Secretary Of State. " In an interview on Bloomberg TV Thursday, National Security Adviser Susan Rice said that negotiating the TPP was one of Clinton's biggest achievements while at the State Department. Less than a week earlier in Iowa, Clinton said that the president should listen to his allies in Congress, such as House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, when approaching the deal. Pelosi has been a strong ally of Obama on just about everything throughout his presidency, but recently she opposed Obama and the so-called fast track authority for trade deals."

Clinton Is "Still Trying To Have It Both Ways On Trade" As She Is "Unwilling To Fully Abandon" The Deal "She Helped Negotiate." "Hillary Clinton is still trying to have it both ways on trade: supportive of organized labor but unwilling to fully abandon a deal she helped negotiate. Clinton would only think about voting for a bill giving Obama fast-track authority to negotiate a Pacific trade deal if she was sure a related bill helping affected workers would also pass, a campaign spokesman said Thursday." (Jonathan Allen, "Clinton Tries To Have It Both Ways On Trade," Vox, 6/19/15)

Clinton's New Position On Trade "Contrasts Sharply" With Her "Previous Support" For The Trade Deal "She Helped Negotiate." Clinton's statement Thursday contrasts sharply with her previous support for Obama's trade agenda. After all, as his secretary of state, she helped negotiate the deal in the Pacific that Obama hopes to conclude." (Max Ehrenfreund, "Hillary Clinton Takes A Stand On Trade," The Washington Post, 6/19/15)
