Clintons ‘Quietly’ Involved in Biden Campaign, ‘Engagement’ with Washington

Speculation has surged that Bill and Hillary Clinton are “quietly” working behind the political scenes as the 2024 presidential election nears.

The rumors followed a report published in New York Magazine, which cited sources close to the Clintons. According to the report, the Clintons are “quietly and steadily increasing their engagement with Washington as the election season heats up.”

The Clintons have convened “groups of friends and political allies for private dinners to talk through the coming election season and to drum up badly needed support for Democratic candidates, starting with the president,” the report said, discussing the personal dinner meetings the former president and secretary of state have held in their D.C. and New York residences.

Hillary Clinton “deepened her connection” to Vice President Kamala Harris, the report added, as Clinton has given advice to Harris for appearances, and conferences. Clinton has also visited Harris at her home.

The speculation may not come as a surprise to many, as Clinton allies are entrenched within the Democratic system. Minyon Morre, a former aide to Bill and Hillary, chairs the Democratic Convention. Two Biden aides, Bruce Reed and Steve Richetti, were previously Clinton staffers. Other Biden associates, including John Podesta, Neera Tanden, and Dennis Cheng, were also involved with the Clintons.

One Washington, D.C. Democrat told the outlet that the political environment is “a lot more Clintonesque than Obama era,” while political consultant James Carville said the Clintons’ possible engagement in politics would be “stunning” if it “weren’t true.”

Due to Hillary Clinton’s influence over the Biden administration, Trump advisor Jason Miller wrote on X, “Crooked has been warming up in the bullpen this entire time!”

American Faith reported that Clinton hosted a fundraising event for President Joe Biden in November, raising $1 million for his re-election campaign.

NBC News wrote at the time that “Clinton’s role is only expected to grow in the new year, but for now, she is filling a space that at a later point in the campaign season former President Barack Obama will join. Obama’s habit is to plunge in closer to Election Day — a reality that rankles some Democratic strategists who say the party sorely needs him right now.”

A forthcoming Biden fundraiser is closely connected with both Barack Obama and Bill Clinton. “The plan underscores the belief among Biden allies that the party needs an all-hands-on-deck approach to help him win a second term,” a report explained.

“There is real focus and urgency around making sure we beat Trump,” a Biden adviser shared with NBC. “Everyone is all in. And this kind of event early on is just the latest demonstration of that.”

The Democratic push for Biden comes as Donald Trump defeated Nikki Haley in more than a dozen states on Super Tuesday, gaining significant ground toward the 2024 Republican nomination. 

“President Trump dominated Super Tuesday in convincing fashion in ways that have never been done,” a Trump campaign spokesperson said. “There is no doubt— President Trump is the nominee and he will go on to defeat Crooked Joe Biden.”
