(Before It's News)

This is one of today’s huge’s Wikileaks bombshells.

The deck is stacked against us. The individual, the common man, the everyday American (who Hillary hates) cannot get a fair shot. It’s the new America – more like the old country — with an aristocracy reigning over the untouchables (or is that nonredeemable and deplorables).

WikiLeaks: State Dept Coordinated Email Release With Clinton Campaign,” By Kevin Daley, Daily Caller, October 11, 2016:

The Department of State provided a detailed readout of official email traffic it was about to release in response to Freedom of Information Act requests to Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign.

The emails concerned speeches former President Bill Clinton gave abroad, and did not include any traffic from Hillary Clinton, according to new emails released by WikiLeaks.

“All — DOS is soon releasing another round of documents and email traffic (not hers) in response to Judicial Watch’s FOIA request on DOS’s process for reviewing WJC’s speaking engagements,” Heather Samuelson wrote March 17, 2015. Samuelson has been a Clinton aide since the early 2000s and served as White House liaison during Hillary Clinton’s tenure as secretary of state. Maura Pally and Craig Minassian of the Clinton Foundation; Philippe Reines, a longtime Clinton adviser; press secretary Nick Merrill; communications director Jennifer Palmieri; Cheryl Mills, Clinton’s chief of staff at State; and Tina Flournoy, President Clinton’s former chief of staff, are included on the email.

“It’s 116 pages with approx. 50 sponsor/subsponsor requests,” the email continues. “No objections by DOS in this batch, but some lengthy internal discussions among DOS officials that I highlighted below.”

The State Department advised that it is standard practice to share documents subject to FOIA requests with outside organizations, if those organizations have equities in the requested materials.

“The State Department does not comment on alleged leaked documents,” State Department spokesman John Kirby told The Daily Caller News Foundation. “But generally speaking, when processing documents for release through the Freedom of Information Act, it is standard practice for the State Department to refer documents to private companies and other outside organizations – including the Clinton Foundation – if the Department believes proprietary information may be contained in the documents.”

“Outside entities are routinely given a chance to review documents and provide input to the Department about proprietary information that may need to be protected from public release,” he added.

The email also includes several items flagged by department officials which may have been of interest to the Clinton campaign. This includes an invitation former President Clinton to speak at a climate change conference in Turkey, for which he would have been compensated by the Turkish government, and another speaking engagement paid for by the Canadian government. The former president declined the former invitation, but accepted the latter.

“Jen — happy to give you more background on prior releases since it’s your first go around,” Samuelson wrote to close out the email, in reference to Palmieri. (RELATED: White House Coordinated With Clinton Team On Email Fallout Talking Points)

The revelation comes one day after The Daily Caller learned the Clinton campaign coordinated with the White House on talking points concerning the fallout surrounding Clinton’s use of a private email server during her tenure as Secretary of State.
