PodestaLeaks Readers Thread # 11 We're getting our asses handed to us……
Wikileaks is throwing out emails like confetti. We were caught up at 9 pm my time Sunday night and then they dumped new DNC emails and new Podesta emails. They dumped again Monday night. This Readers Thread starts with page 1079 and will continue till too cumbersome.
You guys are real champs, so let’s see if we can get caught up.
Wikileaks is going to dump new emails every day till the election and we need you to volunteer to read some and report any that are super interesting or Earth shaking. If and when wikileaks changes to a new set of leaked documents, we will immediately change to that leaked information and start a new thread.
Land of Enchantment found the following link that can help you navigate through the names in the campaign so you can see whos who.
Use it. I certainly get lost in the darkness of this foul mess…..
New method for going thru this pile of crap:
There are 50 documents per page. Please do one page at a time.
Go to the bottom of this thread and find which page the last reader is going to, and then reply to the thread the number of the page you intend to read. I’m going to start this with page 501.
Click on the link at the bottom of this post to get to the wikileaks Podesta emails.
Scroll up till you see the page number bar. The search has sorted the emails from first out to last out by ID number
and has placed them 50 documents per page of output. We will use both the page number and document ID number.
Click to forward thru the pages until you reach the one you will start on.
DO NOT READ EVERY DOCUMENT!!!!
First look at the date, if the document date is before January 2015 ignore it.
Next look at the Subject line, if it’s something stupid like a Safeway ad, ignore the document.
Next look at who the email is from. Again, if it’s clear that the sender isn’t connected to the campaign, ignore the document.
When you find one you need to read, click on it and it will load it up in your browser.
First look to see if the document has any attachments, sometimes they are the important part.
Scan the document. If it is really hot, make a note of the content and check if the attachments, if there are any, are also hot. The document ID is the last five numbers in the URL at the top of your browser. Note the document ID so we can go directly to it in a search later on. The URL should look something like this:
https://www.wikileaks.com/podesta-emails/emailid/24290. So the document ID number is 24290.
Hit the back button to go back to the page of documents you were on and continue.
Once you have finished the pages you signed up for, reply to your post and either tell us you found nothing of interest, or the document ID and something about the content.
This method makes going thru the emails real fast because there will usually be only a few of any real interest per page.
Good luck. If you need to hurl, be sure to get to the bathroom first…..

Re: TWEETS: Bill de Blasio on HRC speech / Bernie
https://wikileaks.org/podesta-emails/emailid/25264 (This is older, but it talks about her paid speeches to banks) so, I am adding
Roy-Don’t be surprised if I write a column soon that Hillary is going to blow it, and is repeating her mistakes of 2008, with stories about her “shadow campaign” of consultants milking her for a lot of money, while she gives paid speeches to banks, while she acts like an incumbent, and says virtually nothing important about what Democrats stand for, while the most admired person in the world is the pope for saying the kind of things she should be saying but isn’t about economic fairness. This has got to be the worst pre-campaign in my memory. Imagine running as the candidate for the Democratic nomination as the
>>> candidate of banks, consultants and insiders. Unbelievable.
https://wikileaks.org/podesta-emails/emailid/25301 Ok, this is a gem. Not happy about Faiz advising Bernie! Boohoo!!! Neera has choice words as does JDP

I have no doubt he’ll take a hard left to the center for the huge independent vote.

I seriously doubt he’ll attack Hillary the way he did his primary opponents. In my opinion Hillary needs to present a bright, positive vision for> tomorrow. * Don’t throttle the message with too much reality. * For God’s sake don’t triangulate! * Speak to B students from Iowa State University of both sexes and all ages.

Don’t have MS word, so I can’t open the 3 attachments
54520: 2016-01-23 RE: Goldman Sachs paid speeches with quotes from her speeches
“The 3 (I misspoke about 5 earlier) speeches to Goldman are attached with
some parts highlighted. Below are some of the more noteworthy quotes.”
54486: “Terry O’Sullivan asked her to call Nikki and me to stress how important it was for their GOTV success in Iowa that HRC hadn’t taken a position on the Bakken pipeline (her comments on Maddow didn’t get noticed), and that they are extremely nervous about her getting pressured to come out against the NED pipeline this week in NH. I told her I would pass the information along (and included you Milia
because she said Terry might be calling John). FYI, the points we currently have in her book on this are good and one goal of the building efficiency release was to have something affirmative to talk about/pivot to if asked about NED.”

54861 – Philippe Reines & Podesta going back-and-forth about who leaked an upcoming interview with Andrea Mitchell about emails. Seems much ado about nothing to me, but they’re pretty steamed about it!
54885 – a big elaborate lie
Mook: “Linking us regarding John’s well-sourced decoy leak of April 20 launch date. Would be good to do this soon since I’m nervous about our planning circle widening. Maybe we could have some fun too and say it will be a speech somewhere. Really catch people off guard.”

27. funny one from an angry donor
Does Podesta merit SS protection??? Reid called me tonight to let me know that the small Congressional group that USSS consults on candidate protection is going to green light protection for Carson based on threat assesment by the Service. Reid is pressing to upgrade your protection at the same time.
Center for American Progress Email retention/deletion… Beginning on June 16, all email older than two years that is not designated for preservation will be automatically and permanently deleted….
Clinton Foundation News & Guidance – a bunch of tweets to celebrate International Women’s Day with nothing of substance.
Funny one, pissed off donor. I guess that I just need to figure-out how to > route their entreaties to “Trash” in my G-mail. I’m giving her my money, > but they just don’t stop, and they never even say “Thanks”.

Won’t have any more Clinton campaign donations to worry about. Of course, Hill might need to reach out to solicit monies for attorney fees real soon.
The crowd at the Trump celebration tonight was chanting, “Jail her! Jail her!”"Let us not seek the Republican answer nor the Democratic answer but the right answer." John F. Kennedy America is the only country that has real lemons in its furniture polish, and artificial lemon flavoring in its lemonade!

29. lying democrats
https://wikileaks.org/podesta-emails/emailid/55201 Stop feeding the beast…. Having raised money for free for the Clinton Foundation, having offered to raise it for free whatn I helped “Ready for Hillary’s (but the lawyers woundn’t let me) and then having offered to raise funds for Priorities for free, I find this story of me trying to make money off her candidacy super upsetting and a lie. Mary Pat Bonner
2015-02-26 Subject: Haiti Donation Statement Draft All – not surprisingly, we’ve received a number of follow up questions asking for confirmation of the Algeria donation. We could let it sit or confirm for other outlets with the following draft statement: “Immediately following the devastating earthquake in Haiti January 12, 2010, the Embassy of Algeria made an unsolicited donation of $500K to Clinton Foundation Haiti Relief fund. As the Clinton Foundation did with all donations it received for Haiti, the entire amount of Algeria’s contribution was distributed as aid. This donation was disclosed publicly on our website, however, the State Department should have also been formally informed. This was a one-time, specific donation for Haiti relief and Algeria had not donated to the Clinton Foundation before and has not since.”
Hah. Another lying democrat. According to Murphy’s web page he’s not a “political insider”.
Schedule a call next week? Need to discuss Germany as well. [email protected] John, We hope and trust all is well. Just to let you know, our New Jersey political deliberations continue, quietly and intently. We have begun to hire advisers. As there is no sense as to when the election will be (impeached? Resign to run for president? Neither?), we are likely to establish a policy-oriented c4 aimed at growing the NJ economy from $500 to $600 billion in 5 years. We are hoping that a platform like this will give us visibility, credentials, etc. Not only are we consulting top thinkers in NJ but are trying to vacuum up ideas from elsewhere (Neera and team are graciously hosting me for a brainstorming in early April. All in all, I would describe us as “VERY serious but not yet committed.” Would love to talk sometime. Miss you. Best to Mary and team. PM
A new book on the hidden lives of presidents, claims that former US President Bill Clinton has had a mistress codenamed ‘Energizer’. One woman on the suspect list is socialite Julie McMahon.
Subject: Susan Collins Said no. She was terribly flattered, etc., but she’s one year into a 5-year commitment as dean at Univ of Michigan, just moved her family back from DC to Michigan and regrets that this is the wrong time to take on something like this. I didn’t let her say no during the first call, but after consulting with her husband and thinking about it, she called back. She, of course, would like to be helpful from where she is, etc. John, I don’t how you want to go back to him on things like this. I don’t think there is another candidate of color who folks would be comfortable putting up as Chair, though either Ceci or Peter (as a stretch) could be a Member.
Attachment… not sure what its about but…
Hello John, Elisabeth might be appalled if she knew I was sending you this draft, but it’s a good start. I’m sending you the draft (repeat: draft) because this is a big idea and one where we want to lean on your experience and advice.

From:[email protected] To: [email protected], [email protected] 2008-08-31
Subject: Re: Vetting …I have gone through the 2004 list and have prioritized 29 of the 52 completed then as names that are coming up in our process as well. (See Sheet #1.) The remaining names from 2004 (Sheet #3) are names I’m recommending not sending to vetting now, but which we can send later as we see if they rise to the top of slates to be considered. I have also sent the names of the Transition Board to vetting (Sheet #2). (FYI, Chris Edley asked that his name not be submitted to the vetting process.)…
From:[email protected] Gentleman- I spoke today with Michael Polsky CEO of in Invenergy. He says john knows him. He wants to do a clean tech fundraiser for HRC in Chicago whenever you can. He only asks that John also attends (he knows where the real power is). I assume you know how to reach him. If not have someone call me.

33. hedge fund guy and Siegelman
From:[email protected] BTW be very very very careful about HRC saying how she is all-in with Pelosi. Nancy’s game from the beginning was to be in on the fixed game. She lost control of her caucus 2/3 or whom were pissed off at the deal she cut, so she changed tactics…. …but there are reasons Democrats have been lobotomized in the House and if Hillary goes into the election with negative ratings and lower trust she may back into the presidency if the Republicans are bad enough, maybe not, but Dems don’t have a snowballs chance in hell of taking back the House….would be lucky with a 25% chance to get back the Senate……and Hillary winning this way may be like Krushchev’s line about the living may envy dead and HRC may not be thrilled spending precious years on her hands and knees moving further right under Speaker Boehner and Majority Leader McConnell……
Subject: Tom Steyer (a hedge fund manager) John, We are offering Tom a 3pm meeting with WJC on February 16th. Would you like to come up for it? Also, do you know if they are mainly going to pitch WJC on the Center for the Next Generation that Jim Steyer referenced, or if Tom is also interested in talking about how he can support the Clinton Foundation? Thanks! Dennis
Subject: Fwd: Don Siegelman case This is the random shit that happens to me running in NYC. You looking at the Siegelman case….
The Crone (2603 posts) (Reply to arikara - post #33) November 9, 2016 at 1:16 am
35. The Jack Brown request for
clemency for Siegelman found this wording of Jack Brown to be spot on:
It would be timely to issue a pardon before the accumulation of evidence of prosecutorial and judicial misconduct explodes under the Obama administration. The grotesque railroading of a Progressive and good man who Rove could not legitimately defeat at the polls is clearly a scandalous black mark in the history of American justice. Better to rectify it before it’s too late.
Jack Brown sounds like he realizes some shit is about to hit the fan. And tonight – it did!

We were aware they had filed a lawsuit, but the video was taped before a judge found in their favor. 3) Are the people featured in the video going to have other roles on the Clinton campaign? Will there be other videos of them?

56260 – What might this be about??
Mook to Podesta: “few things as FYIs: > 1. Really good brainstorm on speech today. I think we have a lot more clarity on the core idea. > 2. Contract negotiations are coming to a crescendo…I’m going to hold a hard line that we’re prepared to walk if people won’t accept the final offer. I talked with HRC and she was ok with offering win bonuses as a final sweetener, which I’m fine with (since they won’t be our problem!). > 3. We are finishing up the next round of TV scripts for the opening spot and should have something for you to review early next week (honestly, I haven’t been very engaged myself!).
56278 – Talking about a Politico article saying “The Clintons – stung by her narrow victory in Iowa and the overwhelming support under-50 voters – had been planning to reassess staffing at the campaign’s Brooklyn headquarters after the first four primaries, but they have become increasingly caustic in their criticism of aides and demanded the reassessment sooner, one source told POLITICO.”
Palmieri wrote: “I talked to HRC and she said she did not know where that would have come from. Said we have to get better but not this. Asked me if I thought it came from people on the call this am. We both agreed that it was not in their interest to do so. She then offered that maybe it was donors. I am telling press otr that it is not true, unfounded. But honestly don’t know what I should say.”
56286 – Brent Budowski (HRC Journalist Tool) forwards one of his articles (“Hillary Battles the GOP Hate Machine”) to Podesta, saying: “John, this one is worth posting on Facebook etc. and using for fundraising, it is one of the most aggressive and uncompromising support for them….Brent”
56298 – Jesse Ferguson wrote: “Politico (Debenedetti) doing a story about HRC rhetoric on 1%. He’s concluding that HRC is not following Elizabeth Warren but has been populist for a long time (thanks to research doc here). He’s also called some Wall Street folks. Some of have said they’re not worried about her position – some gone so far as to say that she’s just saying this in the campaign, but won’t govern this way.“

65. 1119 items of note
56481 – Neera Tanden to Podesta: “I mean you and I have discussed how the press is psychotic a million times. But you have never blamed Hillaryland. I mean that is ridiculous. The press is psychotic!!! But I will tweet now w/o actually saying they are psychotic.”
56482 – Commenting on Joel Benenson’s quotes in this article http://www.politico.com/story/2016/03/hillary-clinton-bernie-sanders-trade-220985, Neera Tanden wrote: “Is Joel off reservation? Does he not get that this story makes Hillary seem politically craven at best or a liar at worse? Or if this is campaign position, can I object? Hard to say she believes what she says when Joel is spinning that she doesn’t mean what she is out there saying. Her language was pretty tough last week. Sanders or trump can move on this.”
56489 – Damage control about Clintons’ DOMA
56492 – [email protected] to John Podesta: “Last night was fun. Still in torture chamber”
56494 – March 2008 – [email protected] wrote to Podesta, Begala: “Michael Vachon had me come up to New York today to sit with George Soros and show him our ads. He liked them…a lot. And he REALLY liked McSame. I thought I’d be skewered for name puns but he thought it was sticky. Since he is a right-wing punching bag he just wanted to make sure he was OK with anything he was accused of funding.”
McSame ad was paid for by Campaign to Defend America PAC. So… is this collusion with a PAC?
56500 – Karen Tumulty of Washington Post to Podesta: “mitt romney – If jeb was trying to send him a signal, it does not seem to have worked.”
56510 – Total suck-up journalist Brent Budowski to Podesta: “I expect to be named the next U.S. Ambassador to France. Just kidding, I don’t want anything, that’s part of my charm. But it is good. Working title is Big Truths About Hillary (though still negotiating fie points with editors)……a very strong statement on her behalf….I have a line about her praising the pope and about refugees and immigration that will be memorable…..”

56595 – Joel Johnson (Gawker journalist) to Palmieri: “I know you can’t look past Bernie and March primaries — but who is in charge of the Trump swift boat project? Needs to be ready, funded and unleashed when we decide — but not a half assed scramble.”
56612 – Regarding HRC statement on TPP/TPA, [email protected] wrote: “I think our test for her public statement needs to be: could a regular person watching the Ed Show walk away understanding if she’s for or against. I kinda get the feeling she’s against, but it’s a long statement and there are many qualifiers. So from my narrow Iowa/progressive lense…I think this pisses off both sides. I’d strengthen, shorten and make it clearer. I know she hates that but this sounds like she’s trying to have it both ways.”

56681 – Podesta: “I only cook for Hillary.”
56691 – Iowa Health Speech – Megan Rooney: ” H had some concerns about how hard the draft went after industry. So we’ve softened a bit.”
Mandy Grunwald: “you’re missing the outrage that taxpayers are helping to pay for those ads we all hate. On innovation — boy I think you’ve gone too far in sucking up to these companies. Remember Joel and Anzo’s polling shows that people think these guys are bigger villains than Wall Street bankers.”
Rooney: “she was concerned about how hard the speech came down on those industries in the earlier draft and asked for the innovation stuff to be added.”
Jim Margolis: “I don’t have a problem on the innovation… I think its fine to throw them a bone there.”

Julien Studley is a real estate broker who died in Oct 2015. What is “find Jacob” a euphemism for?? Does anyone know who [email protected] is? I run into that address a lot.
56702 – big discussion about how HRC should address the Glass Steagall issue – one comment…
Gene Sperling: “I agree with Gary that we should not flip flop on Glass Steagall because one, it is make-believe to think it caused the crisis in any way; 2) because it is make believe, it is crazy for her to buy into the idea that it was her husband as opposed to a Republican Administration bore the regulatory responsibility for the worst financial crisis in our life time.”

56726 – March 2015 – Podesta to Joe Lockhart at Glover Park Group (public relations, advertising, marketing, government relations and policy counsel, crisis management and opinion research): “This one seems bad. Agree? Foundation stuff struck me as more interesting to press than public. Emails strike me as a good piece of yarn to pull on. Thoughts?”

Podesta: “It always amazes me that people like Sid either completely lack self awareness or self respect. Maybe both.”
56901 – Jake Sullivan: “I just saw Sandy Berger. He has a letter supporting TPA that has been signed by all national security advisors, secdefs, and secstates (save Baker and Kissinger). The question is whether HRC will sign it. … I see two options: stay off the letter, or sign the letter with a few tweaks and say that she supports TPA but will withhold judgment on TPP until she sees what’s in the final agreement.”
56909 – Ira Shapiro: “I am a strong Hillary supporter, and a veteran of many campaigns…. I find the number of e-mails that I get, on a daily basis, from the campaign to be way over the top—even borderline harassment. Nothing changes my view that it is crucially important to make Hillary our next president. But I mention it because if I’m feeling that the e-mails are excessive, probably others are as well.”

I did see a brief snippet on CNN that an unnamed aide is telling CNN that she is going to more aggressively negative against Bernie. I ignored that in my column but obviously believe that would be a big big mistake.”

58786 John Harwood – But was his campaign really more expansive than that of the black guy who won VA and NC and IN, 50%+ of popular vote (twice) and 365 EVs in 2008? https://wikileaks.org/podesta-emails/emailid/58786

With all due respect, and reluctantly to do this in front of HRC except
for wanting to defend myself against being labeled as a cancer – but the
conclusion that it is ME that has to stop “this” is really unfair. This
has happened too much over the last six weeks to chalk it up to the press
guessing correctly. They don’t even get facts correctly. Cnn guessed Andrea
Mitchell? Come on. That flies in the face of common sense.
Not to mention I’m following up on a topic last night where you yourself
felt it enough of a problem to have warned the Secretary her people yap. I
didn’t whip you up. You took that into consideration when discussing a 24
hour delay. That never should have been a factor.
Lastly, if you think I’m the only one on this chain bothered by this – and
not because I whipped them up – then I have a bridge to nowhere to sell
you. When I had dinner with Jim Margolis weeks ago, he broached with me
that he is shocked by what he’s reading, is sure it’s close, and fears HRC
is looking at him and the rest of them funny. I think that’s a problem when
her team is looking funny at each other.
And for anyone to be justifiably upset to not be read in earlier on our
current challenge, and then wonder why it’s difficult to speak freely about
something so sensitive in large in expanded settings, is a lack of
self-awareness. This topic’s a unique doozy, but it’s not the last delicate
one. That someone yapped about the lamest 10% of our conversations is
better than the most sensitive 10% is besides the point. But either way
we’re going to have to agree to disagree on whether 10% is just the price
of doing business.
Again, with all due respect, your reaction to me is unfair in that’s it’s
stronger than any admonition anyone else has received who is actually doing
I agree though that being at each others’ throats will get us nowhere, and
if you want me to keep it to myself, ok, done. But it’s the underlying
problem that’s going to be the problem, not me stating the obvious.
With that, I’m going to sit queitly in the corner until Cheryl calls me to
admonish me for sending this reply and digging myself into an even deeper
hole with you than I already was.
For those keeping score, that will be two more admonishment than the
culprit(s) have received.

You got to stop this. The press is trading in rumors that can easily
originate in their own newsrooms. If someone wanted to leak juicy tidbits,
they have a lot more to work with than our press planning. If we are going
to be at each others throats before we start, we are going nowhere.

Wow – nothing…well except a cryptic email I couldn’t make sense of.
58839 debsfine to Podesta
Just spoke briefly. 15 mins. Was a good very frank convo. He wants to get
more info from Cheryl and Robby re level of position envisioned and meet
next week with me in person. Agreed if it’s mid level doesn’t make sense.
I’m totally open to model of reporting to him — I don’t have a personal
agenda here and want to do what’s best for the operation — just wouldn’t
make sense if it’s more junior. That said, I really think they should have
someone senior in house. There’s a lot of crap that comes up.

143. 1170 – a few things
59049 – Attachment regarding Clinton Foundation: “Foundation will adjust its policies during the period of Secretary Clinton’s run for office as follows…”
59051 – Feb 2014 – [email protected] to Thomas Nides: “NYT Confidentially: Rumors around that the NYT is digging into Clinton/Bill Clinton and ready to pop something. Do you know what this is about?”
59056 – Mandy Grunwald, regarding an op-ed about Flint: “Somewhere we should also be clear that this happens in poor white communities too — just not with the same force and frequency.”
59079 – Steve Bachar (lawyer): “Want to give you quick feedback from the ground and a suggestion. Neither of which I want to put in email.”
Calico (389 posts) (Reply to original post) November 14, 2016 at 3:51 am
144. 1171 – tidbits
59099 – Dec 2014 – In response to an article “MoveOn.org Looks to Nudge Elizabeth Warren Into 2016 Presidential Race” (text of which is in the email), Philippe Reines wrote: “This is more than a little annoying. Making noise is one thing. Spending seven figures is another. She voted for the war, you punished her already, get over it. I don’t know who funds them, but don’t we have Hollywood friends with ties to MoveOn who can tell them to cool it?”
Mook: “It’s very annoying but I would be very careful about appearing to push back. It could only feed the fire.”
59127 – Suggestion that Hillary use Charleston shooting as photo op
N. Tanden: “if it can be done in the right way, I think she should consider going. Will get people out of cautious criticism. And it’s like something Obama won’t do. And I think people will remember it.”
59134 – Pressuring union leaders – [email protected]: “Subject: Labor president messaging on healthcare — WJC asked again today that we have labor presidents send an open letter to their members that they should choose HRC … I know there has been pushback in the past but could we put the ask in again?”

59171 – Comments on draft of an op-ed on Wall Street
Podesta: “I am worried that there is not enough love here for Obama. Implicitly critical. We are skating on thin ice after TPP, syria, Cadillac tax, immigration. Need to beef up credit.”
Mandy Grunwald: “I am concerned about the Glass Steagall paragraph… Three things will antagonize: 1) saying she respects those who support it, is kind of patronizing; 2) calling it “old” is an insult to the work done on the new version and 3) saying it will have unintended economic consequences will annoy.”
59186 – This gave me a real laugh!
Lynn Forester de Rothschild – May 2015 – “Subject: FW: POLITICO Playbook… the opposition is trying to undercut Hillary’s reputation for honesty (the number one characteristic people look for in a President according to most polls)…..and also to benefit from an attack on wealth… I am sure we need to fight back against both of these attacks.”

147. 1174 – one thing
59250 – March 2015 – Dan Schwerin: “All, I want to share our draft letter on trade. As you’ll recall, the idea here is to use this to lay out her thinking on TPA & TPP ahead of action on the Hill and a joint letter by all the former Secretaries of State and Defense. This draft assumes that she’s ultimately going to support both TPA and TPP. It focuses on what needs to happen to produce a positive result with TPP, and casts support for TPA as one of those steps. It also says that we should walk away if the final agreement doesn’t meet the test of creating more jobs than it displaces, helping the middle class, and strengthening our national security. We’ve tried to speak directly to the most prominent concerns expressed by Labor and Hill Dems, including Warren. Of course, if we go ahead with a meeting with HRC to lay out the pros and cons and then come to a different conclusion, this letter would change dramatically.”
Woohoo! Done with this batch!
