Clinton Adviser On Paid Goldman Sachs Speeches: ‘It’s Pretty Bad’

DC: Leaked emails reveal one of Hillary Clinton’s longtime advisers privately acknowledging just how damaging Clinton’s paid speeches to Goldman Sachs could be to her campaign.

In January 2016, a handful of Clinton insiders — including campaign chair John Podesta and press secretary Brian Fallon — exchanged emails about the speeches, for which Hillary was paid $675,000 in 2013.

“It’s pretty bad,” Clinton adviser Mandy Grunwald said. “She is critical to some extent of what led to the crash but the more memorable stuff is totally accommodationist.”

The transcripts of Clinton’s private, paid speeches were among thousands of documents from Podesta’s personal email account released by WikiLeaks. Critics of WikiLeaks have accused the organization of acting as a front for Russian hackers.  more here

  1. I’m liking this: several times now I’ve heard essentially the same comment, and from more than one Dem. To paraphrase, “I’ve sure noticed that all the Clinton people are indignantly talking about Russian hackers, and interfering with the election, and how Wikileaks is untrustworthy as well as a Putin tool, but in all that blather no one is saying that the emails are fake. No one is denying that they are the real deal.”

  2. The Russian hackers. Not even logical. Hell, if Putin wanted to know anything, anything at all, all he would have to do is donate to the Clinton Foundation.
