    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.

    http://www.p2016.org/clinton/clintonorg.html

    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

      7. 1080 *** Holy Crap! I think I found the Goldman Sachs Speeches!

      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.”

      https://wikileaks.org/podesta-emails/emailid/54520

       

      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.”
        Palmieri: “I think this is a great way to do a reset with the press – tell them a big, elaborate lie.”

I think people need to see the softer side of Hillary.”

          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.

        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

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.

        https://wikileaks.org/podesta-emails/emailid/55311
        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……

          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!

        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.

Not asking for anything from you people just some guidance. If Hillary wants my support I will give it to her but she has to call herself.

      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.”

      57184 – Brent Budowski ingratiates himself some more: “My column in The Hill tomorrow that will be public tonight has a working title Hillary has big dreams, too. You should like it. I make a brief reference to her campaign going too negative in NH, hinting briefly it came from consultants, but otherwise it is 95% positive, mentions the WJC three minute video and her “imagine” speech as how she should proceed, says she has big dreams too and should tell America about them…. 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.”

It was not easy, but it was the right thing to do.

        I understand that TPP requires you to make similar tough decisions.

        Just a few – there are more bits of interest.
        “Defer to Maya and Karen if we keep, but can we say African American instead of Black?”
        “Perhaps I’m overly sensitive but should we change calling out black men at the beginning? I know we don’t want to ignore that this is a big deal in the AfAm community, but it feels to me like she is singling them out which could be taken very badly. Defer to group but it stood out when I read it.”

        58192 RE: DRAFT Hardhats for Hillary “talker…when you could make out – what he was saying, anyway.  I worry about this. It’s ok for a Bostonian to make a little fun of him, but I’m not sure she should do this.”

        58206 No you can’t steal anymore people from the WH.

        Well, that is a shame. Especially because this doesn’t just hamstring us,
        but also punishes Alex – this would have been a (well deserved) raise and
        step up for him. I assume this is dead indefinitely/forever, but let me
        know if anything changes. And thanks for checking.

        58381 Pierre Juneau to Podesta.

        I just wanted to share a thought that I just had as I am listening to (President) Hillary Clinton on uniting the country.

        A Phoenix cannot fly with only its left wing, nor can a Phoenix fly with only its right wing.

        It takes both the left and right wings to heal for the Phoenix to fly, to rise out of the ashes.

        RE: Ellison
        John says she should call Chu and say she would like to come again to
        meet w the caucus. Chu went above and beyond in the mtg we just had.
        I think it’s also worth her calling Keith Ellison. More likely than
        not that he goes to Bernie but Nydia and Mikulski and Klobo all said
        he’s on the fence. If we steal him from Bernie it’s a huge deal–and
        at the very least we could pacify him if he does go to Bernie. She
        should just say what a pleasure it was yesterday and she really wants
        his support.
        Thoughts?

The trades are also hearing that HRC will put out a statement stating that she encouraged Obama to take this position. Politically with the building trades, this would be a very dangerous posture. Just curious what your thoughts will be if the situation goes this way on Monday.

        John,

        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
        something wrong.

        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

        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.

        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.”

      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?”

      59140 – From: [email protected]

      145. 1172 – tidbits

      59158 – Podesta to cbutts.obama08@gmail.com – Oct 2008 – “Subject: Should we add no paid speeches to ethics form?”

      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.”

      59221 – Neera Tanden: “I have to be at cap at 3 though for that crazy Lade De Rothschild person”

      59229 – Jim Steyer: “Hey John, We know you’re a true master of cuisine and we have appreciated that for years … But walnut sauce for the pasta? Mary, plz tell us the straight story, was the sauce actually very tasty?”

      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!

            154. Wow, you are truly amazing!

            First you let me lure you into reading these things and now you want to help with the data.

            You’re fantastic!

            I’m waiting for a resolution from the 3 M’s on the vehicle that will become the center for wiki information for JPR.

            Soon as I know, I’l make sure to get back in touch.

            We didn’t get our asses kicked because of the spectacular work of members like you.

      156. Cataloging the WikiLeaks material…

      We have a tremendous trove of original source material.  It really needs to be organized in some fashion to make it readily searchable.

      Is anyone working on this or have any ideas about how to approach this?

        157. It's in the formative stage.
