Insiders within Hillary Clinton’s campaign knew they were in big trouble over her use of a private email server.
An email released by WikiLeaks, from Clinton campaign chair John Podesta’s email account, reveals that Clinton’s team was worried about a new CNN poll between Clinton and Bernie Sanders.
They were also wondering who gave Hillary permission to use a private email account?
On Friday, July 24, 2015, campaign policy director Neera Tanden wrote to Podesta, “I’m doing jake tapper and they have a national poll coming out. They wouldn’t tell me results but if I had to guess it – discerning from our prep call -will show Bernie doing pretty well w Hillary and doing as well against Jeb or close to it.”
Podesta wrote back, “Can you imagine what the Republicans would do to him if he were the nominee?”
Tanden responded, “Well, let’s see what the poll actually says. Let’s hope the Democratic party is not suicidal.”
The next day she sent Podesta another stunning admission:
“Do we actually know who told Hillary she could use a private email? And has that person been drawn and quartered? Like whole thing is f******g insane.”
In a later email exchange between Tanden and Podesta on September 15, 2015, Tanden wrote about Clinton, “It worries me more that she doesn’t seem to know what planet we are all living in at the moment.”
