Feb. 28 (Bloomberg) –- Bloomberg’s Jonathan Allen reports on the Clinton Library releasing thousands of documents from the Clinton White House and what they could mean for Hillary Clinton in 2016. He speaks to Trish Regan and Julie Hyman on Bloomberg Television’s “Street Smart.” (Source: Bloomberg)

What in terms of these documents sticks out the most to you?

What we see is a clinton operation, their strategy for how to court members of congress using hillary clinton.

Trying to get the health care legislation done in 1993. how she lobbied members of congress.

You get a real peek inside the clinton operation at that time.

The book has a more recent peek inside how they went after other politicians.

Let's get to that.

I have a memo that came from these documents sent by chris jennings to others in the clinton administration.

They write, "we have begun a file on every member.

They include a wide array of information on the members.

Added to these files will be information and research obtained by the dnc and intergovernmental affairs." tell us the significance of this.

You specifically pointed to this as being something to reference.

There are a lot of people who would be uncomfortable with the idea that the white house is integrating the work of the health and human services apartment and the office of intergovernmental affairs.

With the democratic national committee, the party's national arm, using both to figure out how to work on lawmakers.

The dnc is fundraising, that is not something the white house -- people like to see cooperating with the white house.

In a time of security concerns surrounding the nsa and how much they know about all of us.

With this information coming to light, is this going to be a problem for her in 2016? keeping track of the members, i don't think that in particular is a problem.

The computer systems they have back then were like commodore 64s. i do think people will look at how they operate, how they work people, how she works people, as part of the idea of how she would make decisions, how she would govern.

Is she running in 2016? i think so.

99.99%. 99.99%. there you go.

Jonathan allen, thank you very much.
