Suspended CNN Reporter Appears to Have Coordinated Tweets with State Department in 2013

Thanks to some fabulous work by American Commitment’s Phil Kerpen digging through on Tuesday e-mails from Clinton State Department staffer Philippe Reines, he found that suspended CNN global affairs correspondent Elise Labott had communicated with Reines on multiple occasions to the point of taking marching orders over what she tweeted.

Amidst the e-mails obtained by Gawker (which included Politico’s Mike Allen promising soft pieces on Chelsea Clinton), Kerpen unearthed a series of instances where Labott (in words of Kerpen) “tweet[ed] on request” for the Clinton camp, ranging from so-called acts of transparency in her State Department to when exactly Clinton would depart her post in 2013.

(Last week, Labott tweeted: “House passes bill that could limit Syrian refugees. Statue of Liberty bows head in anguish.”)

What follows are embedded tweets from Kerpen showing e-mails between Labott and Reines and subsequent tweets Kerpen found that match up these “tweets on request”:

Based on those e-mails, one can draw the conclusion that, when it comes to the relationship between the liberal media and Democratic administrations, the following saying couldn’t be any more accurate: It helps to have friends in high places.
