Wikileaks Has Released The Latest Batch (#PodestaEmails32) Of Hillary Clinton’s Campaign Chairman.
With the release of this latest batch of emails Wikileaks has surpassed their promises as the total number of published emails have crossed the 50,000 mark.
Today Wikileaks has released 2,074 more emails, the previous batches of emails contained information regarding Clinton’s aides problems in answering questions about the Clinton Foundation, excerpts of former president Bill Clinton’s speeches were also found in some of the emails.
Many new revelations have been made in the latest batch including an email series from 2015 which shows that one of the biggest donors of Hillary Clinton’s campaign, the billionaire Haim Saban has great influence.
Unlike most donors who donate indirectly, Saban has direct communication with Hillary Clinton’s campaign chairman John Podesta and campaign manager Robby Mook.
An email from The Hill columnist, Brent Budowsky has also been published from back in February 2012, in this mail he is giving advice to John Podesta regarding the Supreme Court deadlock.
He wrote, “If Republicans want to make the Supreme Court dysfunctional for a year, we can turn every Republican Senator into Ted Cruz and win a big Senate campaign victory in November. Everything the public hates about Washington is embodied by Republicans here.”
Another mail included in this batch was sent by the national voter outreach and mobilization director for Clinton’s campaign, Addisu Demissie to Dan Schwerin, Hillary Clinton’s speech writer. In this mail she is telling him how to handle a specific event.
Dan Schwerin also sent an email to Clinton’s aide asking for suggestion, he wrote, “ HRC is supposed to talk for 15 minutes from a podium at the top of a town hall meeting tomorrow at Olivet Institutional Baptist Church in Cleveland. The attached draft is similar to what we’ve been doing recently — breaking down barriers, jobs, schools, systemic racism, a little scripture…if folks think there should be more, please let me know.”
It is also found out that Hillary Clinton’s camp was trying to get high-ranking Muslims on board with Hillary Clinton. For this purpose a major law firm partner, Kamran Bajwa was chosen as it is clear from his email sent to John Podesta in which he explains his efforts to convince Muslim-American to vote for Hillary.
One of the more interesting emails was sent by Doug Band, a Clinton adviser to John Podesta in which he made allegations that Chelsea Clinton used Foundation money for her wedding.
He wrote, “The investigation into her getting paid for campaigning, using foundation resources for her wedding and life for a decade, taxes on money from her parents”.
Although the number of emails have crossed the 50,000 mark but it is expected that Wikileaks will continue to publish more emails before the US presidential elections.
