Accuracy in Media

Does declining to comment mean that the e-mails were in fact real?

In a purportedly hacked email released on the Wikileaks website,Hillary Clinton’s campaign chairman John Podesta appears to write to Hillary Clinton and a top aide urging Clinton to call prominent Latino politicians, including former New Mexico Gov. Bill Richardson and former Energy Secretary Federico Pena to ask for their support.

The subject line of the purported email reads: “Needy Latinos and 1 easy call.”

The Clinton camp and Podesta declined comment. Richardson did not immediately comment.

Also, Podesta called Bill Richardson a not-so-nice name:

It also highlights tension and seemingly bad blood between Richardson and the Clinton team. Podesta says that people have reminded him: “Richardson is still on TV a lot, especially on Univision and Telemundo and, notwithstanding the fact that he can be a d—, it was worth getting him in a good place.”
