BOMBSHELL: Leaked Email Reveals The Disturbing Thing Hillary Wanted Done To Trey Gowdy
Hillary Clinton didn’t make it to the Democrat presidential nomination without knowing how to attack her adversaries before they could hurt her too badly.
So when Republican congressional investigators were hunting down the truth about the Benghazi terrorist attacks that killed four Americans in 2012, the staff loyal to the woman whose unfettered ambition might carry them all the way to the White House had to strike.
And for Hillary’s minions, no target was more tempting — or more timely — than Trey Gowdy, chairman of the House Select Committee on Benghazi.
According to an email uncovered by the Daily Caller that was part of a trove of hacked documents published by the WikiLeaks site, Clinton’s aides had been instructed to find some way to discredit the South Carolina congressman in public – especially before he used a Sunday morning news show last year to launch a blistering series of attacks that turned out to be right on the money.
In an email apparently written at Clinton’s behest, communications director Jennifer Palmieri sought ideas from Clinton’s inner circle on how best to try to undermine Gowdy before he appeared on “Face the Nation” in June, 2015, to discuss the House Select Committee on Benghazi’s investigation of the former secretary of state.
Dated June 27, 2015, the list of Palmieri’s recipients reads like a who’s who of the Clinton email scandal, including campaign chairman John Podesta, Clinton chief of staff Cheryl Mills, and spokesman Brian Fallon.
The main topic seems to be Gowdy’s interrogation of Sidney Blumenthal, Clinton’s shady foreign policy adviser whose work behind the scenes was partially revealed at the time by Gowdy’s release of about 60 emails related to Benghazi.
It was enough to get Hillary’s attention, and cast about for ways to make Gowdy look bad before he faced the nation on TV.
Palmieri wrote, referring to Clinton campaign spokesman Nick Merrill:
HRC asked me what offense we could do today to set up Gowdy for Face The Nation tomorrow.
Nick and I thought best option would be a statement from Podesta doing some offense on how this latest obsession on Sid emails is absurd, further evidence this is partisan effort.
HRC was hoping for a video. Don’t think that is possible for tomorrow. I could see doing one for Tuesday, when we have more email news to face that could put all this in context.
In the meantime, Nick is drafting a statement that we will share with all of you. So be on the lookout for that.
A former beauty pageant contestant has come to the defense of Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump after another ex-pageant contestant attacked him for making pageant contestants feel uncomfortable by “strolling right in” to a changing room
“Our first introduction to him was when we were at the dress rehearsal and half naked changing into our bikinis,” alleged Tasha Dixon, who was Miss Arizona in 2001. “To have the owner come waltzing in, when we’re naked, or half naked, in a very physically vulnerable position and then to have the pressure of the people that worked for him telling us to go fawn all over him, go walk up to him, talk to him, get his attention.”
Dixon said Trump owned the pageant for one reason: “to utilize his power to get around beautiful women.”
