Leaked John Podesta emails show possible collusion between the State Department and the Clinton campaign during email investigation

October 12, 2016

    Earlier this week, through the Wikileaks release of John Podesta’s emails, we learned that the Department of Injustice was in contact with the Clinton campaign during the email investigation and today we have learned that the State Department was also in contact with the Clinton campaign during the investigation.

  Here is more:

A new Podesta email released by WikiLeaks today reveals further direct coordination between the State Department and the Clinton campaign during what should have been a confidential investigation.  The following email chain starts with a note from Clinton Deputy Communications Director, Kristina Schake, on April 9th, 2015 informing Mook, Palmieri, Mills, Podesta and Samuelson that “Someone here just got a tip that the State Department may be planning to release her Benghazi emails tomorrow or Monday.

The emails further reveal a continued coordination between the State Department and the Clinton campaign with Heather Samuelson providing frequent status updates over the course of the following week.

It is also extremely unclear why Samuelson would have received frequent updates from the State Department on the status of ongoing FOIA requests as she was no longer employed by the State Department in 2015.

It’s also unclear, and curious, why all of the controversial conversations, like this one, always seem to be conducted through gmail rather than official campaign email addresses.

  I think it is fairly obvious why a former State Department worker was receiving status updates from the State Department, and it is equally obvious why they were using gmail accounts, but of course these were rhetorical questions…

  There is more:

In the following email dated March 17, 2015 disclosed today by Wikileaks, we find troubling details of the internal State Department process, which somehow made its way to Samlueson with details so nuanced it may only have come as a result of direct communication between the State Department (or DOS as Samuelson calls it) as Hillary’s young confidant, and which in turn she promptly conveyed to her team, regarding the FOIA request, in what appears to be a material breach of confidentiality. This is what she said :

 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.  

There is one request where speaking fee would have been paid by Turkish govt — WJC’s office declined this.   And one speaking engagement with fee from Canadian government, which he did do.  

Let me know if you have any questions.

  But of course there is not even a smidgen of corruption here. Oh wait, that is the wrong scandal. Move along, nothing to see here…

    Setting aside whatever position one has on Trump, the thought of all of these scoundrels brought to justice is worth the price of a vote if nothing else. The thought of the Clintons rattlling around in the WH is more that I can even think about.

      Watching them finally come to justice after all these years would be so sweet!

    A theory as to why Trump is the presidential candidate against Hillary.

      Very interesting! The MSM gave Clinton a free pass on this whole Epstein deal but I didn’t know about the Trump connection. The connection seems flimsy but Hillary thought it was enough to keep this issue on the back burner. Maybe it is, we will have to wait and see.

    OT: 2 officers down in Boston, many more wounded.

    Sounds like a set up, when is this going to stop? A couple days ago, an officer ready to retire AND a young officer that had a infant,,,guess that is ok, too?

      It sounds like a setup to me as well. The man was wearing body armor when the police got there.

        Yep, I imagine all of us sit around with a vest on, daily, right? That is what the media would have us believe…nothing out of the ordinary. I cannot imagine that anyone would want to go into law enforcement without taking a good long look at what is being allowed to happen. When an officer takes that split second to question their actions (because of this craziness that is happening), most times that will be a fatal mistake….they should never have to do that.

        I have a feeling this was related to #blacklivesmatter and we are being kept in the dark about it much the way we were told Benghazi was about a video.

    Well Lou,
    It would seem that the media and the ruling classes considered it fair play to take up arms against the evil, inhuman, racist police.

      Peter, they are the first to cry out for protection and want the police there when the shat hits the fan….can they have it both ways?
      Steve, their priorities suck!
