Leaked Hillary Clinton Emails: Could Bernie Sanders Have Won Primary If Leak Occurred Earlier?
Democracy Now! on Oct 12, 2016
http://democracynow.org – On Friday, WikiLeaks began releasing thousands of John Podesta’s emails, including excerpts of Hillary Clinton’s paid remarks to Wall Street firms. The emails showed Clinton’s closed-door remarks were starkly at odds with many of her public positions. In one speech to a housing trade group in 2013, Clinton spoke of needing “both a public and a private position” when crafting laws. In other speeches, Clinton largely absolved Wall Street firms for the crash of 2008 and said financial reform “really has to come from the industry itself.” The leaked emails also show Clinton openly boasted about her support of fracking while secretary of state. In a speech to Deutsche Bank in 2013, she said, “I’ve promoted fracking in other places around the world.” We speak to Lee Fang of The Intercept, co-author of the recent piece, “Memo Shows What Major Donors Like Goldman Sachs Want from Democratic Party.”

WikiLeaks released two batches of emails from Hillary Clinton’s campaign manager John Podesta, bringing the total number of Podesta emails released to five batches of over 7,000 emails. The emails show Clinton’s close Wall Street ties, her campaign tactics against Bernie Sanders and her collusion with the media. The White House is considering a ‘proportional response’ against Russia for their alleged involvement in the hacks. RT America’s Alexey Yaroshevsky has the report.
