AmericanMirror: Not even an official announcement of running for president could dissuade the Clintons from speaking to Wall Street firms and accepting their big fees.
A newly released email on Friday by Wikileaks shows an internal conflict among campaign staffers over whether or not Bill Clinton should cancel a speech to Morgan Stanley just three days after Hillary announced her campaign for president.
“Morgan Stanley is coming down–so we’re good to go,” campaign manager Robby Mook wrote to Jennifer Palmieri and Huma Adbein on March 11, 2015.
“Did you ask them to do that?” Abedin wrote in reply.
“Yeah, john did,” Mook wrote back, presumably referring to campaign chairman John Podesta.
“HRC very strongly did not want him to cancel that particular speech,” Abedin responded.
“I think if John is getting involved in this scheduling matter, he must feel strongly. I will have to tell her that WJC chose to cancel it, not that we asked.” MORE
