Ex-Bill Clinton lawyer would advise Hillary against running in 2020

Lanny Davis said on Wednesday he would advise Hillary Clinton against launching another presidential bid. 

“She has so much to give in public service, and for her sake and her family’s sake, she has so much to give in public service, I hope she doesn’t put herself through it again,” the former special counsel to President Bill Clinton told Hill TV’s Krystall Ball and Buck Sexton on “Rising.”

Davis, also a Hill opinion contributor, added that he does not know whether Hillary Clinton is actually considering another run. 

His comments come after writer Michael Goodwin floated the idea that Clinton could be gearing up for a presidential run in 2020 on Saturday in the New York Post

Clinton has been one of the Trump administration’s most vocal critics since she suffered a surprising defeat to Trump in 2016. 

She recently slammed the White House’s zero tolerance policy that separated families at the U.S.-Mexico border, saying fundamental rights “are under assault like never before.” 

Davis was hired to join the legal team of President Trump’s former fixer, Michael Cohen, last week.
