Federal Election Commission rules explicitly state that a candidate must file campaign paperwork within 15 days of performing any campaign activities, but it appears that Clinton was unofficially campaigning for months before she announced last April 12.
While building up her staff is likely not against FEC rules, the six speeches between January and March could reasonably be construed as illegal campaign activities, especially since she was in the midst of a hiring spree.
Further adding to the speculation that Clinton was illegally campaigning during those two months is the fact that many of the firms that paid for her speeches have government contracts with the U.S. government.
Senator Bernie Sanders, has hammered away at her to release the transcripts of her speeches. What would be more damning to Clinton’s presidential hopes than for the transcripts to reveal that she was running for president — months before she ever announced?
The implications are clear: regardless of the content of the transcripts, Clinton’s activities — especially during the first two months of 2015 — leading up to her announcement leave no doubt that she had been planning to run for president for months, if not years.
McGuire is close to Clinton in other ways. In 2007 she was appointed to the Women’s Leadership Council for Team Hillary, a group of 250 women whose goal was to help Clinton reach the White House.
