The CNN reporter who scored Hillary Clinton's first national interview since launching her presidential campaign also attended the wedding of a Clinton aide two weeks ago.

Reported by the Weekly Standard at the end of June, CNN senior political correspondent Brianna Keilar and six other prominent political reporters attended the wedding of Adam Parkhomenko, director of grassroots engagement for Clinton's campaign and co-founder of Ready for Hillary, and former Ready for Hillary staff member Kirby Hoag. The ceremony was said to be off the record.

CNN announced Monday that its exclusive interview will take place in Iowa City and air Tuesday on "The Situation Room" at 5 p.m. and again on "Anderson Cooper 360" at 8 p.m.

The news of Clinton's first national interview comes just two days after her campaign staff literally corralled reporters with a rope to keep them at bay during an Independence Day event.

After some media outlets began to draw a link between Keilar's appearance at the wedding and the upcoming interview, Seth Bringman, former communications director for Ready for Hillary, took to Twitter to defend the reporter, trading tweets with Mediaite's Andrew Kirell.
