A bombshell rocked the presidential campaign Friday, and reporters flying with Hillary Clinton were in the dark because the plane’s wifi was reportedly out.
Of note as we wait for Clinton: plane had no wi-fi today. One adviser after we landed: "We're learning about this just like you all are." pic.twitter.com/CjsH71LJNo

One advisor, whom Mattingly did not name, used the patented Obama/Clinton line, “We’re learning about this just like you all are.”
They were referring to the revelation that the FBI was reopening its probe into Hillary’s private email server.
Mattingly phoned into CNN en route to Clinton’s campaign event in Cedar Rapids.

The campaign was “caught off guard” by the news “to say the least,” Mattingly reported.
“When we landed we were all finding out about this at the same time, and that apparently includes Hillary Clinton and her advisors.”
But the Wall Street Journal’s Byron Tau reports Clinton’s campaign plane has wifi:
