Welcome back to the Podesta Emails series. We continue to looks at the latest batch of Emails dumped by Wikileaks found on Podesta’s email account.
The emails found on the address date back to Clinton’s 2008 presidential campaign and expose some of the corrupt doings and very questionable statements and actions the Clinton campaign and staff members had between 2008 and March of 2016.
Be notified that we have a LOT more dumps coming in the following days, and potentially more information coming in November.
Without further ado, let’s get right into it.
Third Party Server
This first email shows the discussion about the Email scandal that had long been plaguing the campaign and the discussion about what to do with the emails.
The campaign was worried about the scandal potentially doing major damage to the Hillary campaign and wanted to try and potentially give evidence to a third party company to try and potentially alter data before turning it over to the FBI.
It is not clear why this suggestion was made, but there are some factors that could unveil reasons why.
Here are some examples:
- Email server contained classified info
- The Server had been exposed to hackers in China, according to the Washington Examiner.
- Emails revealing “quid pro quo” deals with Moroccan King and the FBI (http://nypost.com/2016/10/17/state-department-brokered-deal-with-fbi-to-declassify-clinton-emails/)
- Allegations of Bribery
And other major factors.
The campaign was very worried that if the server was tunred over as is, it could devestate the Clinton campaign.
They also liked to joke about the server a lot, not such a big deal, huh? (see the link below)
Bernie is a F-er
This email is pretty obvious of the Clinton’s campaign on Bernie sanders and his supporters to “the revolution”
The person at the center of this is Faiz Shakir, the Former vice president for the soros-backed group, Center for American Progress, who had defected to the Bernie Campaign instead of the Hillary campaign.
In the email, Neera Tanden, the Domestic Policy advisor for Soros-funded Center for American Progress, called Bernie Supporters, “freaks after Hillary…like his spawn.”
Podesta replied that the decision was not sitting well with him and gave him “a hard time” after the decision.
To which Tanden replied, “He’s a f-er”, expressing anger at the defection to the Bernie campaign and not joining the Clinton campaign.
This is just one of many times the Clinton Campaign had slammed advisors of the Bernie campaign.
In this email, Kaine had known in advance that he was going to be the VP pick for Hillary should she win, sealing a lie that he only knew 48 hours prior to the formal announcement Before the Democratic National Convention.
A conversation between Clinton campaign chairman John Podesta and political consultant Erick Mullen leaked by WikiLeaks suggests that Tim Kaine — and Hillary Clinton — lied to the American people about the Virginia senator’s selection as Clinton’s running mate.
In the email, Mullen complains to Podesta that attorney Bob Glennon “won’t stop assuring Sens Brown and Heitkamp (at dinner now) that HRC has personally told Tim Kaine he’s the veep.” The email was sent on July 15, 2015 — over one full year before the campaign’s official announcement…
…Kaine suggested at one point that he only knew of his selection 48 hours before the official announcement. But the email released by WikiLeaks suggests otherwise — yet more evidence of the Clinton campaign’s pathological predilection for lying to Americans.
The Lost Phone:
In a politico article in 2014, the article states:
In the month since he returned as a senior counselor, Podesta has quickly picked up the kind of long-term, big-picture strategic thinking that this White House has always talked about priding itself on but struggled to do in its 2013 year of hell. Still frantically trying to turn things around, Podesta brings what it needed: fresh but experienced perspective, and the clout that comes from having the confidence of the president, despite coming from outside an Obama inner circle that’s resistant to newcomers.
Podesta’s a big proponent of the executive action strategy that the president announced in his State of the Union would define his 2014, and he has become the nexus of thinking through everything from the legal questions to involving Cabinet secretaries in their development and implementation. He’s become the point man on data and privacy as part of the NSA reforms and implementing the president’s environmental regulations.
He identified the need to give early West Wing attention to the California drought, which is already among the worst the state has seen and is expected to intensify in the coming months. He consolidated the response among several federal departments and agencies, including the Council on Environmental Quality, Agriculture, Interior, and the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy. Podesta has talked with Gov. Jerry Brown, who received a call last week from Obama, and members of the California congressional delegation.
As Counselor to President Obama, he surely must have a good communication with the President via email about serious matters, in legislation and other issues.
However, Podesta lost his phone back in July 2015, potentially putting classified data or sensitive info in jeopardy.
If the article is any indication, Podesta discussed relatively private matters via email with the President.
Losing a phone is one thing. Losing a phone with the President’s info and statements on it? That is not good. Very careless!
We still have more on the 15th batch of emails coming soon, So…
