Wikileaks Releases Thousands Of Hacked Emails From Clinton Campaign, Hints Bernie Sanders Was Right About Hillary’s Involvement With Big Banks
The October Surprise extravaganza continues, this time, it’s Hillary Clinton is the one dealing with an eye-opening debacle. WikiLeaks has released more than 2,000 emails from Clinton’s campaign chairman, John Podesta. On Friday night, WikiLeaks announced that it had obtained well over 50,000 emails from the personal inbox of Podesta.
Podesta confirmed the breach but questioned the authenticity of the emails.
Included in the leaks are excerpts from transcripts of closed-door speeches Clinton gave to Wall Street companies after leaving the State Department. These are the same speeches that Bernie Sanders urged Clinton to release during the Democratic primary, but she refused to do so. If they are genuine they would validate Sanders’ suspicions that Hillary is subservient to powerful Wall Street firms.
The excerpts from paid speeches to Goldman Sachs, Deutsche Bank, Morgan Stanley, and other giant financial groups shed a possible light on Clinton’s relationship with big banks behind closed doors.
About a week after Sanders raised the issue of Hillary being influenced by Wall Street in a January debate, Clinton’s campaign’s head of research, Tony Carrk, sent around excerpts from her speeches that were possibly damaging to Podesta and other top campaign officials.
The memo highlights potentially politically damaging quotes from each paid speech with headlines such as, “CLINTON ADMITS SHE IS OUT OF TOUCH,” “CLINTON SAYS YOU NEED TO HAVE A PRIVATE AND PUBLIC POSITION ON POLICY,” and “CLINTON REMARKS ARE PRO KEYSTONE AND PRO TRADE.”
