Over the weekend, Wikileaks posted a treasure trove of emails from various members of the Democrat party which has laid ruin to any hope for civility at the DNC’s convention in Philadelphia. That said, Hillary’s campaign seems to be even more concerned about what may be leaked next.
Jennifer Palmieri, Hillary’s communication director, recently told reporters:
“The WikiLeaks leak was obviously designed to hurt our convention, I don’t think they’re done. That’s how they operate. We can’t know, but it’s part of the reason that we wanted people to understand our belief that the Russians are behind this. People need to understand — when these leaks happen — what they’re designed to do.”
Palmieri added that the Clinton campaign was not worried about it’s own email security…which we’re sure the American people will find very reassuring in the wake of that pesky little FBI investigation in which we learned just how secure Hillary’s email account was.
Palmieri’s comments come as Democrats prepare to officially nominate Clinton for president, making her the first woman to be nominated for president by one of the two major political parties. Judging by yesterday’s intraparty strife, one can only imagine how raucous today’s roll-call will be.
Call us crazy, but the campaign seems to be spending way too much time spinning a narrative about Russian involvement, even going so far as to call on Hillary’s friends at the FBI to look into the issue, for this scandal to fade quietly into the night. Something tells us that Jennifer knows more than she’s letting on and that we’ll get to review some more leaked emails soon.
Alternatively, we’re sure Bill could arrange for a purely coincidental meeting with Putin on a tarmac somewhere to discuss his “grandchildren” but something tells us his audience might not be as “accommodating” as last time he tried that.
