Podesta: Hillary Has Terrible Instincts


What kind of candidate are you when your two biggest boosters think you are incompetent?  You’d be a Hillary kind of candidate.  In recently released emails, John Podesta, Hillary’s campaign chairman and  Center for American Progress President Neera Tanden, they discussed Hillary’s “poor instinct.”  Is the presidency really where we want someone with “poor instincts”?  Or do they support her because of her ability to raise money and fool idiotic voters?

Podesta wrote to Tanden:

“We’ve taken on a lot of water that won’t be easy to pump out of the boat. Most of that has to do with terrible decisions made pre-campaign, but a lot has to do with her instincts.”

Tanden replied:

“You know I’m not a sycophant to you by any means. But the thing that makes me most confident she will prevail is that you are there.  Almost no one knows better [than] me that her instincts can be terrible.”

From The Washington Times:

Ms. Tanden has been tight-lipped about the stolen emails, a tiny fraction of the 50,000 WikiLeaks plans to release before the Nov. 8 presidential election. She declined to discuss the matter during an Oct. 20 CNN interview with Chris Cuomo by citing Russian state actors blamed for the theft, and declined to comment for a Washington Post story titled “WikiLeaks reveals fears and frustrations inside Clinton world” published Wednesday.

Other observations by Mrs. Clinton’s adviser to make headlines include a March 2015 exchange with Mr. Podestawhere she addressed the former secretary of state’s secret email server scandal.

“Why didn’t they get this stuff out like 18 months ago? So crazy,” Ms. Tanden wrote March 2, 2015. “I guess I know the answer. They wanted to get away with it.”

Fox News’ Bill O’Reilly has called the email thread between Mr. Podesta and Ms. Tanden a “smoking gun” that FBI Director James Comey ignored during his investigation into Mrs. Clinton’s handling of the nation’s most secretive intelligence documents.
