Hillary Clinton’s campaign is pressuring TV stations across the country to stop airing an anti-Clinton political ad sponsored by the pro-Trump super-PAC Rebuilding America Now.
The campaign claims the ad, titled “Outsourcing,” is “directly contracted [sic; contradicted?] by evidence in the public record.”
The ad claims Clinton went to India and talked up outsourcing — and then received a donation from Indian politician Amar Singh of up to $5 million in 2008.
The Clinton campaign contends that the donation was made in a different year.
A lawyer for Rebuilding America Now, Cleta Mitchell, said the political ad “is well within the scope of important public discourse.”
