A new pro–Donald Trump superPAC, Rebuilding America Now, is out with an attack ad hitting Hillary Clinton that will begin running nationally this week.
The hard-hitting ad links Hillary Clinton's private email use to the Monica Lewinsky scandal. The ad, titled "Hillary Clinton: More of the Same," intercuts two press conferences: one with Hillary Clinton from August 2015 in which she discussed her use of a private email address and server for State Department correspondence and one with Bill Clinton in January 1998 in which he responded to allegations that he had sexual relations with Monica Lewinsky.
"We turned over everything," Hillary Clinton says in the ad. "I did not send classified material, and I did not receive any material that was marked or designated classified."
Bill Clinton says in the commercial that he "never told anybody to lie" and that "these allegations are false." He famously said at that press conference, "I did not have sexual relations with that woman," but that quote is not used in the ad.
It ends with text reading, "Same old, same old, same old, same old typical politician."
Ken McKay, a former Trump adviser now with the superPAC, tells ABC News that the group's goal is to match the spending of Hillary Clinton's superPAC, Priorities USA. (Priorities USA has $136 million reserved.)
His group is doing research and will decide whether to run the ad in battleground states where Priorities USA is on the air — including Virginia, Florida and Ohio — as well as Colorado, McKay says, and the ad will begin airing nationally this week.
McKay, the former campaign manager of Chris Christie's presidential bid, said GOP strategist Alex Castellanos, who was previously critical of Trump, is also working for the superPAC. It is backed by real estate investor and Trump friend Tom Barrack.
