Democrats like Rosa DeLauro who support the impeachment inquiry of Donald Trump, played a far different role when the U.S. House impeached Bill Clinton.
WASHINGTON – Congressional lawmakers on Wednesday were urged to take additional security precautions following reports that the U.S. Secret Service intercepted explosive devices sent to former President Barack Obama, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, and other high-profile Democrats. No member of the Connecticut congressional delegation was targeted in the attack, which Sen. Chris Murphy called “a coordinated assassination attempt against Democrats.”
WASHINGTON – Hillary Clinton spent four years in Connecticut — turbulent years caused by unrest over the Vietnam War and racial strife. But for the future first lady, senator, secretary of state and presidential nominee, they were also formative.
PHILADELPHIA — Bill Clinton ambled onto the Democratic National Convention stage Tuesday night like a man dropping in on old friends, walking from one side to the other, drinking in the applause. He came to put a fresh spin on an old story, a tale that began in Connecticut. It was about the day in 1971 he met a girl.
The morning after attracting 14,000 to the New Haven Green, U.S. Sen. Bernie Sanders of Vermont was in no mood Monday to talk about his success in reshaping the Democratic agenda or contemplating that a victory for him could be anything less than winning the presidential nomination. “We are fighting to become the nominee,” Sanders told The Mirror. “We’re going to win here in Connecticut.”
Bill Clinton praised Bernie Sanders at a campaign stop in Hartford on Monday, the day before primaries in Connecticut and four other states, saying the Vermont senator has played a positive role in broadening the Democratic base., even if it has come at the expense at times of his wife, Hillary Clinton.
STORRS – It was a wistful Bill Clinton who took the stage Thursday night to accept a human rights award, a 69-year-old grandfather with a raspy voice, weighted with regret for abuses he failed to stop as president, buoyed by hope for good works to come.
Bill Clinton is headlining a $1,000-a-ticket fundraiser for Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign Wednesday at the West Hartford home of Attorney General George Jepsen. The next evening, he will be at UConn to accept an award named for Thomas J. Dodd.
It’s not a recent decision, nor is it a surprise. But the time has come to go public: With the legislative session over, Gov. Dannel P. Malloy is endorsing Hillary Clinton for president Sunday.
With Democrats claiming momentum, Bill Clinton came to Hartford on Monday to keep the ball rolling, telling a partisan crowd that Gov. Dannel P. Malloy deserve re-election, a message President Obama intends to reinforce Wednesday night in Bridgeport at his first campaign rally of 2014.
As always, Bill Clinton made it simple. He told Gov. Dannel P. Malloy, a first-term Democrat with uncertain re-election prospects in a slowly improving economy, he had a good story to tell: Things were bad four years ago. You made them better. Just…tell…your…story.
Bill Clinton, who helped close out the 2010 campaign for Gov. Dannel P. Malloy, is coming to New Haven for what Democrats are billing as a $50-a-ticket rally at the Omni Hotel at noon Tuesday.
WASHINGTON — Congress will try to cram in as much work as possible this week before taking off for two weeks on an Easter/Passover/Spring break.
