Identical pro-Hillary tweets after ‘Meet the Press’ appearance just a coincidence?

This past Sunday, Demoratic presidential frontrunner Hillary Clinton was a guest on NBC’s “Meet the Press,” where she fielded questions about her chief nemesis, Bernie Sanders, and the ongoing investigation into her use of a private email server. After the interview, a video clip of which appears further down in this post, Clinton’s strategic communications adviser and senior spokesperson Karen Finney took to Twitter to observe optimistically:

There is nothing even remotely surprising about Finney’s tweet. A key part of her job description is to do damage control and put a positive spin on support-killing scandals such as Emailgate.

On the other hand, these identical or near-identical tweets that came out after Finney’s should raise some questions:

As Alex Griswold at Mediaite notes:

[A]t first it may appear that these responses were all coordinated in some fashion. However, it would be against the law for campaign officials to coordinate with a pro-Clinton Super PAC director like Brad Woodhouse.

If nothing else, the tweets reveal the extent to which “independent” and “disinterested” journalists like Hillary Rosen are in the bag for Clinton.
