The Hillary Clinton campaign and the pro-Clinton Super PAC Correct the Record seem to have coordinated their talking points on the Clinton email scandal.
Though political campaigns are barred from directly coordinating with Super PAC’s under Federal Election Commission (FEC) law, the Clinton campaign is apparently flouting those rules.
Here’s what Clinton campaign senior adviser and spokeswoman Karen Finney had to say Sunday after Hillary’s interview on “Meet The Press.”

What an original thought! Oh wait, here’s the head of the pro-Clinton super PAC Correct the Record, Brad Woodhouse, just minutes later:

The Clinton campaign recently claimed that it can coordinate somewhat, within the law, with Correct the Record when it comes to Internet postings. The Clinton camp thinks that it can comment on Correct the Record’s online content, such as its videos, without being guilty of illegal coordination. But the FEC has still yet to confirm that. And can the campaign and the super PAC literally use the same exact talking point, seemingly copied and pasted from one Twitter account to another?
Correct The Record describes itself as “a strategic research and rapid response team designed to defend Hillary Clinton from baseless attacks.”
Despite the Clinton camp’s apparent belief that the email scandal is over following Clinton’s appearance on a Sunday talk show, FBI investigators recently extracted never-before-seen emails from Clinton’s private server. The email scandal continues apace.
