WILL THEY CLAIM IT’S “DOCTORED?”
by Sharon Rondeau
Kaine is Hillary Clinton’s running-mate, and Brazile became interim DNC Chairman after Debbie Wasserman-Schultz resigned as a result of Wikileaks release of hers and others’ emails which showed favoritism of Clinton over primary contender Bernie Sanders.
Over the last 14 days, Wikileaks has been releasing thousands of emails exchanged with or sent by Clinton campaign chair John Podesta, who is also chairman of the Center for American Progress.
On Wednesday night, Fox News anchor Megyn Kelly asked Brazile how the Clinton campaign apparently obtained in advance “the exact wording of a question asked at the March 13th CNN TV1 town hall debate.”
Other revelations included in Wikileaks’ recent releases include evidence of communication between major media and the Clinton campaign; campaign staffers referring to ethnic and racial groups in what could be perceived as derogatory terms; the possibility that Clinton removed furnishings from the State Department in an unauthorized manner; and the transcripts Clinton’s Wall Street and other speeches given after she left the State Department in February 2013.
Clinton was paid in the six figures for each of the speeches but was unwilling to disclose the transcripts. In one of the speeches, Clinton is noted to have said that she favors “open trade and open borders.”
Fox News reported that Clinton was paid a total of $26.1 million for the speeches.
Early in the latest series of Wikileaks releases, Kaine suggested that the emails “could be doctored,” a claim which Wasserman-Schultz did not make.
