In an email recently released by Wikileaks, Reuters reporter Mark Hosenball told Hillary Clinton campaign chairman John Podesta that he had “a rather interesting document which outlines in detail the principal current objectives of the House Benghazi Committee.”  Hosenball also said he was willing to show it to Clinton campaign operatives.

“I have run across a rather interesting document which outlines in detail the principal current objectives of the House Benghazi Committee, and was wondering if you might have a minute or two to discuss this,” he said in the April 2015 email.

“If you are anywhere near 1333 H in next day or two I might even show the document to you (I’m out on Thursday, however) though I am reluctant to hand out copies at this stage,” he added (Emphasis added).

“It is a document which raises some questions about the bona fides of the committee’s investigation, rather than about anything specific a certain former SecState might have done. If this is something that you would not want to get involved in, if you had any alternative ideas as to who I ought to speak to I would welcome them. Hope all is well etc. All best & regards mh”

Will Donald Trump win the 2024 election?

“That’s in a different lane with Kendall and Cheryl. Mind if I share this email with them?” Podesta asked, referring to Clinton aide Cheryl Mills and attorney David Kendall.

“Please do,” Hosenball said in response.  “I put in a call to Kendall yesterday but they said he was out of town til Weds or Thurs. I would love to talk to one or both of them about this. Many tks for any encouragement you could offer to that end. Rgds mh”

Podesta then forwarded the information to Mills and Kendall.

Hosenball did not specifically reveal what information the document contained, nor did he say how he got the document.  The email chain also does not say what the Democrats intended to do with the document once they saw it.

Nevertheless, the email raises serious questions.  What, exactly, did Clinton know and when did she know it?  And how did a Reuters reporter acquire what presumably was a sensitive document?

Hosenball still writes for Reuters, and his work can be seen here.  This is just the latest example of allegedly “objective” journalists — now known here as Clinton propagandists or operatives of the Democrat-media complex — working to help Democrat Hillary Clinton, perhaps the most evil person ever nominated to the White House by a major party.
