Wikileaks has released its third batch of hacked emails from John Podesta, Chairman of the Clinton Campaign. In this email, the campaign talks about setting up a meeting between VP Joe Biden and Hillary Clinton so that Hillary can tell Biden she is running for president. The concern is the meeting will be leaked, but the team decides the leak is less brutal than if Biden learns that Hillary and her assistant, Huma Abedin, have been secretly meeting with Biden staffers to steal them for her campaign.

To understand the flow, the emails needs to be read from the bottom up.  So scroll down and read upwards.

John was a proponent.
Fine to do – manage for the leak

Yeah…all the more reason to just move forward. I don’t want to speak for John, but I believe he was a proponent of moving forward last time we discussed.

Part of our challenge is we are interviewing people in his office and I am concerned he finds out and additionally feels like we are taking people from under him.

My gut is to push forward…I worry the later we wait the more possibility there is that he’ll get offended. I’d rather have it leak and him feel respected than delay and he feel more pressure to run. But I don’t know the guy at all…

Biden’s office is saying he can meet next week. Just confirming you are all still on board with her seeing him knowing it will leak etc?
