Scratching each other’s backs, huh? Here’s what LifeZette reported on the email dump:
[George] Soros dined with Clinton on Oct. 7, 2014. He wanted Clinton to attend a fundraiser for America Votes, a liberal umbrella group that assists 400 organizations, including People for the American Way and the AFL-CIO. The group’s website is currently boasting it will help win states for progressive candidates…
…The issue was discussed by campaign Chairman Podesta, top Clinton aide Huma Abedin, and Robby Mook, Clinton’s campaign manager.
In the end, it all came down to Soros and what Soros wanted.
“I would only do this for political reasons (ie to make Soros happy),” wrote Mook. “It’s very unclear to me how much AV will matter next cycle. And I haven’t seen then adding any value this cycle. I also worry a little it will cause donor confusion vis-a-vis Priorities.”
