Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton has a problem with a nationwide ad a pro-Trump SuperPAC began airing this week.
The Clinton campaign reportedly pressured TV stations across the country to not air the Rebuilding America Now ad, according to the New York Post.
The ad claims Clinton went to India to make a speech that was pro-outsourcing and received a $5 million donation from Indian businessman Amar Singh later in 2008.
The Clinton campaign claims the ad is false on the grounds the donation didn’t occur in 2008 — ultimately admitting the donation did take place. The political ad “is well within the scope of important public discourse,” according to Rebuilding America Now’s legal counsel Cleta Mitchell. Mor at HaTTiP
