HuffPost: The White House's study was done 2 1/2 months ago.

Hot Air:

Er, isn’t that at the least an admission of attempting to tamper with the Democratic primary in Pennsylvania?  If this didn’t violate the law, why did Rahm Emanuel ask Bill Clinton to make the pitch rather than do it himself?

I’m guessing this adds gasoline rather than water to the fire.

Larry Sabato at National Review Online:

The one comment on the New York Times site is pretty funny: “So Bill Clinton was the Luca Brasi of this situation…”

The key word is “unpaid.” That almost certainly gets them off the hook legally and defuses much of the controversy.

WashPost's Chris Cillizza:

"How do you make something out of nothing?," asked one such operative who was granted anonymity to speak candidly about the matter. "By acting guilty when you're innocent."

Another senior party official said that the White House "has a lot of egg on their face" and described the events as a "PR nightmare".
