Well, It seems that the Email Scandals will not die, But this time, It’s not on Clinton Herself.
Instead, the newest Emails released by Wikileaks has a few gems that attack Bernie Sanders, Prove the Elections Were rigged for Hillary and many other topics that are sure to concern the average voter.
It seems that the DNC has been going for Hillary ever since announcing her candidacy in April of last year. This can be proven by some emails that were transmitted that show the plotting against Sanders as well as other Pro-Hillary Propaganda.
Without any further ado, let’s jump right into it.
1) Attacking Sanders’ Religion
In this email from May 2016, according to the Washington Free Beacon:
DNC CFO Brad Marshall wrote to DNC Communications Director Luis Miranda and Deputy Communications Director Mark Paustenbach about questioning Bernie Sanders’ faith. With the subject line, “No shit,” Marshall suggested finding an individual to question Sanders’ religion in Kentucky or West Virginia assuming he is an atheist.
This email was supposed to be a recruiting tool for someone to question Sanders’ faith in god before the WVA and KY primaries, which was to lower his appeal in those states.
Such a tactic wold allow for clinton to pick up a larger religious voter base in those states, which would allow for more delegates to vote for Clinton at the DNC.
The DNC is supposed to remain neutral until a candidate is formally nominated and accepts said nomination, according to party rules.
2) Counting Bernie Out Prematurely.
This first email shows Chairman Schultz, who is the DNC chairperson, referring to Campaign Manager for Sanders, Jeff Weaver, as an Ass for stating that the Bernie supporters and the Campaign would go to the DNC convention and protest the results of the primaries.
Again, the DNC is supposed to remain neutral.
Here, Wasserman states: “Spoken like someone who has never been a member of the Democratic Party and has no understanding of what we do.”
This refers to a statement made on April 24, 2016 by Bernie sanders in California, in which he proclaimed that he is proud of his campaign and what he and his supporters have done to support him in California and throughout the primaries.
Virtually, An insult to Sanders and mocking him for his lack of party affiliation.
“This is a Silly Story. He isn’t going to be president.”
If you can’t read it that well, This email shows that Schultz is mocking and insulting Sanders, as he had said that He would dispose of the DNC chair should he be elected.
Virtually, she was right, apparently from all the rigging in the primaries and slander from the DNC. We’ll get to more of that right now.
3) Clinton-Media Collusion
According to an RT Article:
A communication from late May laid out the pros and cons of DNC Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz accepting an invitation to CBS’s ‘Face the Nation’, and indicated that the DNC was plotting its moves based on what would be amenable to Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign.
“Clinton campaign is a mess, they’re afraid of their own shadow and didn’t like that we engaged,” DNC communications director Luis Miranda wrote. “But they’ll be unhappy regardless, so better to get out there and do some strong pivots and land good punches on Trump. They can’t tell us NOT to do TV right now, we shouldn’t pull ourselves out until they actually do.”
“It’s clear that Bernie messed up and that we’re on the right side of history,” Miranda wrote in another bullet point, referring to the Nevada convention.
“Let’s take this offline,” Wasserman Schultz said in response. “I basically agree with you.”…
…The DNC also appears to have made a secret “agreement” with Kenneth Vogel, an influential report for Politico.
An email from late April with the subject line “per agreement… any thoughts appreciated” shows that Vogel sent an advanced copy of a story about Hillary Clinton’s fundraising to the DNC even before his editor even saw it.
“Vogel gave me his story ahead of time/before it goes to his editors as long as I didn’t share it,” DNC press secretary Mark Paustenbach wrote to Miranda. “Let me know if you see anything that’s missing and I’ll push back.”
The Chain of emails can be found here: https://wikileaks.org/dnc-emails/emailid/8253
Virtually, the DNC chair and the DNC itself had a conversation in this email chain about an upcoming “Face the Nation” interview, in which the DNC plotted moves to shape and shift the campaign to make it look like it was going well, and that the DNC had nothing to do with the campaign and what happened in Nevada.
In reality, the DNC had been propping up the Clinton Campaign and had helped clinton win delegates in Nevada, from what appears to be confirmed in the email chain.
Here’s a few points that were offered to Schultz to pivot the topics and alter the results:
On May 19, 2016, at 1:12 PM, Miranda, Luis <MirandaL@dnc.org<mailto:MirandaL@dnc.org>> wrote:
Points to consider:
· Reince did a full Ginsburg at his lowest point. That’s what draws attention.
· We cancel on them now and things get all nice they, may not want us back till convention if at all.
· We can’t be offended about any topic or question, it’s our job to be accountable, and it looks better if we answer and pivot, than just not show up at all.
· The coverage has shifted significantly, it’s much better today (see NYT story and WaPo editorial). It’s clear that Bernie messed up and we were on the right side of history. We’re going to take hits, but Bernie defending the actions the way he’s done I think makes him look bad more than us.
· Clinton campaign is a mess, they’re afraid of their own shadow and didn’t like that we engaged. I happen to think they’re wrong and it explains why they’re hobbling along unable to close it out. But they’ll be unhappy regardless, so better to get out there and do some strong pivots and land good punches on Trump. They can’t tell us NOT to do TV right now, we shouldn’t pull ourselves out until they actually do.
· We just have to stress this isn’t DNC vs Bernie/Weaver, this is about the principle of non violence and we’re glad the Sanders camp finally separated that out. Now we need to go back to focus on …. X, y, z.
· Florida considerations…defer to you.
Virtually, the DNC was to try and manipulate the topic so that the Attention could steer away from the Nevada Debacle and be an attack Panel on Trump. These points that were offered were to be used to offset the Nevada controversy and steer negative attention away from Clinton.
4) The Hillary Victory Fund
This one is a bigger chain of emails that show, according to the Observer:
…DNC staff in damage control over allegations from the Sanders campaign, when a report—corroborated by a Politico—revealed the DNC’s joint fundraising committee with the Clinton campaign was laundering money to the Clinton campaign instead of fundraising for down-ticket Democrats. Regardless of the fundraising tactics, because both major campaigns didn’t agree to use the joint fundraising committee super-PAC with the DNC, the DNC should have recused itself from participating with just the Clinton campaign.
An email chain was discovered in the batch of 22,000 emails released. Here is the email chain excerpts:
Sanders campaigns says: “In fact we can see from her FEC-tracked disbursements exactly where the remaining money has gone. It has gone straight to advertisements and direct mail campaigns for Hillary. The money can’t eventually go to the DNC and state parties because it has already been spent.”
On May 4, 2016, at 5:41 PM, Miranda, Luis <MirandaL@dnc.org<mailto:MirandaL@dnc.org>> wrote:
Hey Brad, see below from McClatchy, Sanders is claiming the money from HVF has already been spent on ads and direct mail for Hillary and so can’t go to the DNC or state parties… Can we debunk?
Yes. We can debunk. While money has obviously been spent for fundraising costs (which is absolutely necessary in order to raise the 60 million dollars they keep referencing!) there are millions of dollars still sitting in HVF that are allocated to the DNC and the state parties (and therefore have to be transferred to the DNC and the state parties) that have not yet been distributed because the point of the party portion of HVF is to raise money to fund the general election. This isn’t right and it seems to me that we should say that. Let me reach out to see if I can get hard numbers on how much is left.
Confirmed that there is $9,250,945.99 AFTER EXPENSES in HVF that will be transferred to state parties, and $3,077,726.13 allocated for the DNC AFTER EXPENSES that will be transferred. . So they are definitely wrong and we can say that. If you want to push out those specific numbers though, you should confirm with Schwerin that HFA is comfortable.
Apparently, Clinton Money Laundering is not just contained to her and many corporations, but it is also spreading to the DNC!
According to Graham Wilson,
While money has obviously been spent for fundraising costs (which is absolutely necessary in order to raise the 60 million dollars they keep referencing!) there are millions of dollars still sitting in HVF that are allocated to the DNC and the state parties (and therefore have to be transferred to the DNC and the state parties) that have not yet been distributed because the point of the party portion of HVF is to raise money to fund the general election.
Which means that the Money that has been saved within the HVF had been allocated to the DNC for pro-Clinton advertisements.
According to politico on the same issue:
In the days before Hillary Clinton launched an unprecedented big-money fundraising vehicle with state parties last summer, she vowed “to rebuild our party from the ground up,” proclaiming “when our state parties are strong, we win. That’s what will happen.”
But less than 1 percent of the $61 million raised by that effort has stayed in the state parties’ coffers, according to a POLITICO analysis of the latest Federal Election Commission filings.
The venture, the Hillary Victory Fund, is a so-called joint fundraising committee comprised of Clinton’s presidential campaign, the Democratic National Committee and 32 state party committees. The setup allows Clinton to solicit checks of $350,000 or more from her super-rich supporters at extravagant fundraisers including a dinner at George Clooney’s house and a concert at Radio City Music Hall featuring Katy Perry and Elton John.
The victory fund has transferred $3.8 million to the state parties, but almost all of that cash ($3.3 million, or 88 percent) was quickly transferred to the DNC, usually within a day or two, by the Clinton staffer who controls the committee, POLITICO’s analysis of the FEC records found.
By contrast, the victory fund has transferred $15.4 million to Clinton’s campaign and $5.7 million to the DNC, which will work closely with Clinton’s campaign if and when she becomes the party’s nominee. And most of the $23.3 million spent directly by the victory fund has gone toward expenses that appear to have directly benefited Clinton’s campaign, including $2.8 million for “salary and overhead” and $8.6 million for web advertising that mostly looks indistinguishable from Clinton campaign ads and that has helped Clinton build a network of small donors who will be critical in a general election expected to cost each side well in excess of $1 billion.
The arrangement has sparked concerns among campaign finance watchdogs and allies of Clinton’s Democratic rival Bernie Sanders. They see it as a circumvention of campaign contribution limits by a national party apparatus intent on doing whatever it takes to help Clinton defeat Sanders during the party’s primary, and then win the White House.
So apparently, Money that had been raised for state parties had been shifted to the Clinton Campaign and expenses for the DNC to run Pro-Clinton propaganda.
These laundering operations have helped Clinton raise a massive amount of money from a small network of donors through web advertisement and operational costs so that more money could be saved for the general election.
Also, this story had some sort of “agreement” between the DNC and Vogel, which can be found here:
We are reaching the end of the first part of the Wikileaks DNC leak, but there are more gems to be uncovered.
