So much for a ‘fair’ Democratic Party primary, right? The Clinton campaign sent internal e-mails, leaked by Wikileaks, that showed they were handpicking Democratic National Committee staffers while the primaries were going on.
No wonder Bernie Sanders worried them, huh?
Here’s what one of the e-mails said:
Madame Secretary et al,I had a good conversation with Simas today. Few things to report:1. He said Debbie and Amy are supportive of bringing someone in to fill a general election planning/preparation role.2. We agreed that Jen O’Malley Dillon would be a very strong candidate. She has the experience/relationships/gravitas to navigate the building. It’s also completely credible for the WH to say that she’s their pick. We agreed she should be our first choice for now unless we think of someone better.3. He is meeting with Amy Dacey again on Wednesday and is going to report back. I will come back at that point with thoughts on what’s most useful to raise at the meeting with Debbie. Ideally, Simas can tee Jen up by then and you can reinforce in the meeting how urgent it is that she be brought on board and empowered to get to work.
