Clinton aide releases debate prep footage

After the New York Times reported that former Federal Bureau of Investigation director James Comey tried to avoid being hugged by President Trump at an event in January, Hillary Clinton aide Philippe Reines, who played Trump during debate prep last fall, tweeted a video of Clinton trying to avoid his attempt at a Trump hug. Comey's associates told reporters that he tried to avoid directly interacting with Trump months ago, and that he did not appreciate it when the president singled him out and pulled him in for a hug during a gathering.

Though they avoided awkwardness that time, the candidates' physical interactions came to the fore in an October debate where Trump was seen stalking behind Clinton during some of her answers.

Today her former advisor Philippe Reines tweeted some behind-the-scenes footage of a debate prep session.

Reines purchased four podiums on Amazon, two for his home and two for the secret office the Clinton campaign lent him at the PerkinsCoie law firm in Washington, D.C. He searched eBay for a 2005 Donald J. Trump signature collection watch, which he purchased for $175.

Pope gives the Catholic church its two youngest Saints
Several investigations have already been carried out, the last in January 2014, but the Pope had made no announcement since. The children had been threatened by local civil authorities with death by boiling oil if they did not recant their story.

Clinton reacts by grabbing Reines' hand and then running away. But instead of going for a handshake, the man portraying Trump opens his arms wide, inviting a hug.

Comey was also unsettled by Trump's attempts to establish a personal relationship with him and feared their interactions might jeopardize the investigation into the Trump campaign's ties to Russian Federation, according to associates who spoke to the New York Times. Reines chases Clinton, jokingly hugging her as she tries to escape.

And, yes, even though that video is super blurry and apparently taken on a 10-year-old Blackberry, Reines confirmed on Twitter that is, indeed, Hillary Clinton.

In fact, during Trump's campaign he stated, "If I win, I am going to instruct my Attorney General to get a special prosecutor to look into your (Hillary Clinton) situation because there has never been so many lies, so much deception".
