During the last debate, Wikileaks was brought up once. It was a question directed at Clinton regarding her open borders statement made in a speech to Brazilian bankers.




“Secretary Clinton, I want to clear up your position on this issue because in the speech you gave to a Brazilian bank for which you were paid $225,000 we have learned from the Wikileaks that you said this, and I want to quote, ‘My dream is a hemispheric common market with open trade and open borders—’” Wallace asked.


Her immediate response was not a denial. Note that. Her response was:



“If you went on to read the rest of the sentence, I was talking about energy,” Clinton


That was it. No clarification. She continues to go on a tangent condemning Wikileaks and DT and Putin. (and she claims Trump displaces blame..)

Wikileaks was not brought up again.

*The lack of denial is indicative of truth to the releases.

This week we will see the entire media universe clamoring on about something Trump said instead of worrying about the major revelations made this week.

What clarification is needed more then she was talking about energy policy? She then went on to discuss the source of the information Wikileaks and its possible link to Russian Intelligence Agencies.

Please point out policy in the quote.

She didn't discuss the possibility. She directly accused. Even went on as to say 17 intel agencies confirm, which is one man who speaks for the 17 she's referring.

Never go full Gomer.

I'll take your comment as sarcasm.

Open trade and open borders.

Energy traded doesn't have to stop at a fictional line drawn on a map to identify itself, people have to do that.

The deflection (pivot) was quick and was never revisited.
Wallace should have stuck her with this again.

Yes this. ^^^

That was another one they saw coming and she was prepped for.

The real question you should be asking is why the hell isn't Trump using the wikileaks as ammo, or the clinton foundation for that matter.

Because the Trump foundation is infinitely dodgier than the Clinton foundation, and if he talks about the Clinton foundation a lot then he has to answer a lot more questions about what the Trump foundation has been up to.




And wikileaks is pretty clearly getting their information from Russian intelligence. Trump is probably at least a little bit cautious about using illegally obtained Russian intel in his campaign. That might not look great to a lot of voters.

I found it disgusting to hear Clinton claim that the Clinton foundation spends 90% of their proceeds on charitable actions.


www.informationliberation.com...





The Clinton Foundation spent a hair under $91.3 million in 2014, the organization’s IRS filings show. But less than $5.2 million of that went to charitable grants.


Either she is really bad at maths or really bad at telling the truth. Which one seems more likely?

Did you guys take the time to look at the entire quote?


My dream is a hemispheric common market, with open trade and open borders, some time in the future with energy that is as green and sustainable as we can get it, powering growth and opportunity for every person in the hemisphere



I was talking about energy. You know, we trade more energy with our neighbors than we trade with the rest of the world combined," she said. "And I do want us to have an electric grid, an energy system that crosses borders. I think that will be great benefit to us.

I did read the quote as I imagine the moderator and Trump(possibly) did as well.

This would have been a great time to actually clarify or expound upon her words.

The point of the topic that I was trying to convey is the acknowledgment and confirmation of Wikileaks validity. There seems to be some rumors flying around that letters/emails/statements are illegitimate.

New Wikileaks tweet:


We have a suprise in store for @TimKaine and @DonnaBrazile.

There seems to be some rumors flying around that letters/emails/statements are illegitimate.


For example:


“Podesta's emails were stolen,” she added, referring to the chairman of Clinton's campaign. “You're so interested in talking about stolen material. You're like — you're like a thief that want to bring into the night the things that you found that was in this data.”

Having to answer legitimate questions from a journalist hardly qualifies as persecution. And while it is true that someone (probably the Russian government, according to U.S. intelligence officials) stole emails from the account of John Podesta, Kelly is not a “thief” simply because she wants to discuss the emails' contents.

The strange back-and-forth made it look as if Brazile had something to hide. Admitting to sharing the question (if, in fact, she did) would not have looked nearly as bad. She could have acknowledged the impropriety but pointed out that it involved a single question in a town hall — not even a head-to-head debate — and had nothing to do with Trump. Instead, she made a mildly bad situation worse.


Wa Po

Boy, I wonder what kind of surprise Kaine and Brazile will be getting?

Wow. Starting to wonder how muddy this is going to get!

Brazile was looking awfully guilty last night in her interview with Kelley. (I'll post if you havn't seen the video)
