WikiLeaks poisons Hillary’s relationship with left

More on Hillary and Wikileaks after this article.

Politico via Drudge:
"After learning how Clinton feels about them, liberals vow to push back against her agenda and appointments."

"Donald Trump is pointing to a stream of hacked emails as proof that Hillary Clinton would be a compromised president, but a surprising number of progressives are drawing similar conclusions — albeit for totally different reasons.

"Some of the left’s most influential voices and groups are taking offense at the way they and their causes were discussed behind their backs by Clinton and some of her closest advisers in the emails, which swipe liberal heroes and causes as “puritanical,” “pompous”, “naive”, “radical” and “dumb,” calling some “freaks,” who need to “get a life.”

"There are more than personal feelings and relationships at stake, though.

"If polls hold and Clinton wins the presidency, she will need the support of the professional left to offset what’s expected to be vociferous Republican opposition to her legislative proposals and appointments.

"But among progressive operatives, goodwill for Clinton — and confidence in key advisers featured in the emails including John Podesta, Neera Tanden and Jake Sullivan — is eroding as WikiLeaks continues to release a daily stream of thousands of emailshacked from Podesta’s Gmail account that is expected to continue until Election Day." . . .
Rick Moran: Wikileaks emails reveal close cooperation between Clinton campaign and Univision  . . . "But for both Univision and Fox, there is a question of journalistic integrity. In effect, the two networks became willing partners and adjuncts to political campaigns. In that sense, at least the perception of independence was lost.
"You can bet that Wikileaks possesses emails from CNN and MSNBC employees to the Clinton campaign, making recommendations on how to attack Republicans and offering other advice. It shows just how far afield the formerly honorable profession of journalist has gone in pursuit of its own, private agenda."

Wikileaks reveals that Hillary’s such a crooked politician that she doesn’t even stay bought   . . . "King Mohammed VI of Morocco agreed to give the money to the Clinton Foundation, provided that it hold a convention in his country in May 2015 with Clinton as the keynote speaker.
"But Clinton realized that the conference, slated for a month after she announced her run for president, would hurt her candidacy." . . .
A century and a half ago, Simon Cameron, a senator who became President Lincoln’s first Secretary of War (only to resign a year later in a hailstorm of corruption scandals) defined an honest politician as “one who, when he is bought, will stay bought.”
"Even by the standards of a politician so corrupt he resigned the key cabinet position during the Civil War, Hillary fails the test."
