An email released by Wikileaks indicates that the Clinton campaign may have discussed purposefully destroying the emails on Hillary’s illegal private server just two days before receiving a document retention subpoena from the GOP-led House Select Committee on Benghazi.
“On another matter….and not to sound like Lanny, but we are going to have to dump all those emails so better to do so sooner than later,” campaign chairman John Podesta wrote Cheryl Mills on March 2, 2015.
“[T]hink you just got your new nick name :),” Mills wrote in response.
A post at Zero Hedge noted:
It is unclear which “Lanny” is referred to: the infamous former DOJ staffer Lanny Breuer who quit in January 2013 after telling Frontline that some banks are too big to fail, or, more likely Lanny Davis, special counsel to President Bill Clinton, and spokesperson for the President and the White House on matters concerning campaign-finance investigations and other legal issues
It is also unclear – for now – which emails Podesta is referring to in the thread, but Podesta adds: “better to do so sooner than later.” We can hope that a subsequent response, yet to be leaked by Wikileaks, will provide more color.
If the exchange is shown to disclose intent to mislead, it will negate the entire narrative prepared by Clinton that she merely deleted “personal” emails and will reveal a strategic plan to hinder the State Department and FBI “investigation.”
A few days after that exchange, Zero Hedge said, Robby Mook told Podesta: “We gotta zap Lanny out of our universe. Can’t believe he committed her to a private review of her hard drive on TV.”
“It seems the Clinton campaign was not happy with being set on a course of transparency by Bill Clinton’s special counsel,” Tyler Durden said.
Naturally, the Democrats will want to deflect from this piece of email. Maybe they’ll claim it was a Russian hacker working for the non-existent KGB posing as Podesta… Why not? After all, James Carville already invoked the agency.
