Wikileaks: CNN and the DNC colluded on questions to be asked during Donald Trump interview

November 7, 2016

  Just last week CNN fired interim Democratic Committee Chairperson Donna Brazile after it was learned she was sending debate questions CNN intended to ask Hillary Clinton during a town hall style event in advance. As if that were not bad enough we are now learning through Wikileaks that CNN was apparently colluding with the Democratic National Committee on questions the network would ask Donald Trump during a scheduled interview.

  Here is more:

Newly released emails from WikiLeaks suggest that the Democratic National Committee colluded with CNN in devising questions in April to be asked of then-Republican primary candidate Donald Trump in an upcoming interview.

In an email to DNC colleagues on April 25 with the headline “Trump Questions for CNN,” a DNC official with the email username asked for ideas for an interview to be conducted by CNN anchor Wolf Blitzer.

The sender of the email would seem to be DNC Research Director Lauren Dillon, who was identified in previous reports of DNC emails released by WikiLeaks in July.

Several hours after the first email was sent, Dillon said in a follow-up email that the interview had been cancelled, “as of now,” but shared a list of questions thought up by the DNC that she said could be used for the next interview.

Some of the questions included: “Who helped you write the foreign policy speech you’re giving tomorrow? Which advisors specifically did you talk to? What advice did they give you? Did they give you any advice that you chose not to take?” Others explored Saudi Arabia’s alleged involvement in the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks, a pre-preemptive strike against North Korea and court martials for members of the military who didn’t follow orders.

  But that is not all: Lauren Dillon was also in contact with CNN about upcoming interviews with Ted Cruz and Carly Fiorina:

A separate email from Dillon that same day said “CNN is looking for questions” for then-GOP primary candidate Texas Sen. Ted Cruz, and “maybe a couple on” former Hewlett Packard CEO Carly Fiorina.

  CNN’s response was move along, nothing to see here because this happens all the time and is “unremarkable.” The network claims it also contacts Republicans before interviewing Democrats but that is as believable as the IRS claiming it was also targeting tax-exempt Democratic groups when there is no evidence to back it up. I am not buying what CNN is selling here…

    Yep, we could figure on that!
    Seems all the wrong people are in the positions that require ‘right’ people – we only gets what’s left!

      It makes you wonder why it is that only this type of person gets into journalism. Perhaps this is the only type of person who is allowed to succeed in the business.

        Yes, just like the entertainers or anyone really successful in this world – it requires the selling out of one’s soul to the usurper: god of this world (system).

        I guess when all you have is this world with no hope of anything beyond it you do whatever it takes to get what you can here.

        “Hope” was probably the wrong word, I probably should have said with no faith that anything lies beyond this world.

    Mao famously said “Political power grows out of the barrel of a gun”. However if Mao had only known you could setup a corrupt foundation he would have saved a lot of agravation of fighting the Nationalist.

    America’s founders were able to throw off the elites that ruled them, however in today’s America the people are so stupid it boggles the mind. How can people say Hillary is a liar and corrupt , but are still willing to vote for her.

      I don’t understand how anyone can possibly vote for her either but I guess they just don’t care. I suppose they are used to the corruption and have come to expect it but the Clinton’s go well beyond anything we have ever seen before.
