Rep. Keith Ellison, former Bernie supporter, to spin for Clinton at debate
September 26, 2016 — 7:07am
WASHINGTON -- Rep. Keith Ellison will be in Hillary Clinton's spin room at Hofstra University tonight.
Ellison, a former Bernie Sanders supporter, will travel to New York to be apart of the mob of Clinton supporters who "spin" her win to reporters before and after the debate. Those in the spin room also take down high moments for Donald Trump and "fact-check" whatever he says, spinning one-liners into positive moments for Clinton.
Trump was known during the GOP primary debates to visit the spin room himself and promote his appearance to reporters, though it is highly unlikely he will do that tonight.
Rep. Erik Paulsen called for an independent investigation into Russia's interference in the presidential election following President Trump's firing of FBI Director James Comey, going further than many GOP lawmakers in the aftermath of a move that has roiled the Capitol over the last day.
