Wikileaks Released More Emails About Hillary (Warning: Aliens Ahead)
Things got real on an alien conspiracy theory and member from Blink-182
The Short of It:
WikiLeaks posted an additional 2,000 emails from the account of Hillary Clinton's campaign chairman, John Podesta.
The Longer Version of It:
This is the second hack in four days from WikiLeaks, which has claimed to have its hand on a trove of over 50,000 emails from Podesta. Here's a quick scan of the most interesting bits of news so you don't have to scrummage for them:
Not everyone thinks Chelsea Clinton is all that.
One 2011 email exchange revealed that a long-time aide to Bill Clinton called his daughter Chelsea Clinton a "spoiled brat" who had a "lack of focus in her life". Doug Band emailed Podesta and an aide to Hillary Clinton about a story on his consulting company, Teneo, and put Chelsea on blast.
"I don't deserve this from her and deserve a tad more respect or at least a direct dialogue for me to explain these things," Band wrote. "She is acting like a spoiled brat kid who has nothing else to do but create issues to justify what she's doing because she, as she has said, hasn't found her way and has a lack of focus in her life."
Hillary really wanted to separate herself from Russia
One email exchange highlights the way Clinton's campaign wanted to respond to the New York Times article in April 2015 that alluded to a connection between donations to the Clinton Foundation and a Russian uranium producing company, Uranium One.
"We should have surrogates attack the NY Times for writing 'thousands' of words when their own story admitted that there was no connection," Joel Benenson, CEO of the Benenson Strategy Group, wrote to Mandy Grunwald of Grunwald Communications. Grunwald responded, "Ditto here. But it still ran on the front page and he's still getting air time all over the place."
Podesta and Blink-182 have something in common (yes. Blink 1-82)
DeLonge, singer of that band you loved in the 90s, emailed Podesta multiple times on his interest in aliens and belief that documents surrounding Area 51 and other alien hotsites should be less classified.
"I think you will find them very interesting, as they were principal leadership relating to our sensitive topic. Both were in charge of most fragile divisions, as it relates to Classified Science and DOD topics. Other words, these are A-Level officials. Worth our time, and as well the investment to bring all the way out to you," DeLonge wrote to Podesta in one of the various emails in their encounters.
