WikiLeaks Reveals Hillary Tried To Dramatically Alter Presidential Race To Help Her Chances
The examples of Hillary Clinton's dirty political games keep piling up as WikiLeaks continues to release e-mails from her campaign. Today we've learned the Hillary tried to dramatically alter the primary schedule of the presidential nomination race in order to help her chances at winning down the road.
According to ABC News, Hillary's future campaign manager Robby Mook revealed the scheme in a Nov. 2014 e-mail to Hillary's campaign chairman John Podesta.
Mook wrote, "The overall goal is to move the IL primary out of mid-March, where they are currently a lifeline to a moderate Republican candidate after the mostly southern Super Tuesday. IL was a key early win for Romney [in 2012]."
In other words, what Hillary's campaign feared the most was a moderate Republican presidential nominee because she felt she'd have a harder time beating him or her down the road in the general election. To throw off a moderate candidate's Super Tuesday momentum, Hillary's campaign wanted to reduce the number of primaries held that day.
The request for the move ended up coming from President Obama, a former Illinois senator, but Mook made it clear that "the key point is that this is not an Obama ask, but a Hillary ask. The Clintons won't forget what their friends have done for them."
Mook, a politically strategist at the time and former Democratic National Committee member, was then given the position of campaign manager when Hillary publicly announced her candidacy the following April. These revelations show the Hillary campaign's collusion with the White House very early on in the campaign process, which will also likely not make Bernie Sanders fans happy as more and more evidence like this comes out that his loss to Hillary was engineered from the very get-go.
