Gawker posted a piece Tuesday about what looks like a very cozy email relationship between Politico White House correspondent Mike Allen and Philippe Reines, who served as an aide to Hillary Clinton while she was Secretary of State.

American Commitment president Phil Kerpen did some digging of his own and seems to have uncovered a similar relationship between Reines and CNN’s Elise Labott — who was just suspended by the network over an opinionated tweet about the Statue of Liberty “bowing its head in anguish” over the House vote on Syrian refugees.
