With friends like these, who needs enemies?
New York’s Mayor Bill de Blasio proved to be a dubious surrogate for Hillary Clinton when he invoked her name at a contentious press conference.
The frustrated mayor attempted to deflect reporters’ questions Thursday about several investigations into his administration, according to The Washington Free Beacon. He cited the Democratic presidential nominee as an example of how probes are an inevitable part of public life.
“The next president of the United States has gone through more investigations than I can count,” he said. “And I would remind you, go to the end of the road on all those investigations, you will find positively nothing. And she’s about to be the president of the United States.”
De Blasio served as Clinton’s campaign manager in her successful bid for U.S. Senate in New York in 2000,
The Campaign for One New York, De Blasio’s political nonprofit, is being investigated for whether it illegally lobbied the city in 201, the Free Beacon reported.
