Only CBS News Covered Wikileaks-Clinton Advisor Emails Leak on Online Homepage

CBS News [1] ran a homepage article on the leaked e-mails related to Hillary Clinton’s campaign, ranging from John Podesta, campaign chairman, and other friends and campaign advisors such as the Center for American Progress’s President Neera Tanden, Clinton spokesperson Brian Fallon, and an e-mail correspondence with the Department of Justice over court hearings over Clinton’s secret e-mails.

…the campaign was still preoccupied with emails. In May 2015, Clinton spokesman Brian Fallon alerted other staffers that the Justice Department was proposing to publish Clinton’s work-related emails by January in response to requests by news organizations. Fallon, a former Justice Department spokesman, wrote that unspecified “DOJ folks” told him there was a court hearing planned soon in the case. The name and email address of the person who shared the information with Fallon had been deleted.

Donald Trump on Tuesday called Fallon’s email “unbelievable,” and his supporters said it showed collusion between the Obama administration and Clinton’s campaign.
