US State Department Backing Hillary Clinton’s Campaign
Hillary Clinton hates “everyday Americans,” according to an e-Mail obtained by WikiLeaks.
WikiLeaks posted about 1,200 more e-Mails Tuesday that it said were hacked from the personal account of Hillary Clinton’s campaign Chairman, including one showing a Clinton ally seeking to enlist supporters to squelch dissent from a leading liberal group.
The Clinton Campaign has blamed the leaks of Democratic groups’ documents on Russia, as have US intelligence agencies and has refused to confirm the authenticity of the e-Mails.
Mr. Podesta suggests that the communications may have been altered.
Further, the Obama Administration’s State Department provided Hillary Clinton’s campaign with detailed information about e-Mails it was about to release in response to Freedom of Information Act requests, according to e-Mails released by WikiLeaks.
The emails referenced speeches by former President Bill Clinton (referred to by his initials as “WJC”) and did not include emails from Hillary Clinton.
Mrs. Clinton’s aide Heather Samuelson wrote an e-Mail on 17 March 2015 about the State Department’s upcoming releases, according to the WikiLeaks hacks.
“All—DOS is soon releasing another round of documents and email traffic (not hers) in response to Judicial Watch’s FOIA request on DOS’s process for reviewing WJC’s speaking engagements. It’s 116 pages with approx. 50 sponsor/subsponsor requests. No objections by DOS in this batch, but some lengthy internal discussions among DOS officials that I highlighted below.”
State Department spokesman John Kirby said that it is “standard” to share documents that are subject to FOIA requests with outside agencies if those agencies have “propriety information” in the documents.
Bill Clinton received invitations to speak in Turkey and Canada, according to the emails. He declined the Turkey invitation and accepted the Canadian one.
In previous WikiLeaks releases, the Obama Administration is shown to have coordinated with Clinton’s Campaign on talking points regarding Mrs. Clinton’s use of a private e-Mail server.
The e-Mails WikiLeaks released apparently come from the account of Clinton Campaign Chairman John Podesta
