Politico: Media Hack Working With Clinton

(Before It's News) Thank GOD for Julian Assange and WikiLeaks. I had no idea how important that group was, until now.

The American people have been duped for decades. We suspected what was happening, but now it’s been verified. And thankfully we have a presidential candidate in Trump who is willing to withstand the barrage that occurs when liars are exposed. Politico and other media outlets are part of the cabal working against truth; against the American people.

We learn from an email released by Wikileaks that Glenn Thrush, the top political correspondent for Politico colluded with Clinton campaign chief John Podesta.  He actually sent part of an article to Podesta to be “cleared” for publication.

According to Breitbart:

The exchange between Thrush and Podesta was revealed by Wikileaks (Podesta Email 12681). In the email, Thrush sends several paragraphs about Hillary’s fundraising operation and leads into the article by admitting, “Because I have become a hack I will send u the whole section that pertains to u.” After asking Podesta not to “share or tell anyone I did this,” Thrush seeks Podesta’s approval on the article by saying, “Tell me if I f**ked up anything.”

Shortly afterward, Podesta replies to Thrush with his approval, saying on the record, “no problems here.”

So we are clear, the media who supposedly watches out for the public against unscrupulous politicians is actually vetting their materials with unscrupulous politicians.

Then it gets worse, as the Breitbart article suggests:

The long article “Podesta signed off on” was published on May 1 and titled. “Hillary’s big-money dilemma: How the Clinton campaign’s go-small political message is butting up against 2016’s big bucks reality.” The article never directly quotes Podesta or makes mention that one of the authors had spoken with Podesta. Instead, it cites “people close to the campaign” for the information about Podesta that Podesta provided.

Thrush told Podesta he was sending the information “to make sure I’m not fucking anything up?”

In short, Thrush writes a piece about Hillary Clinton’s dilemma of getting mostly big money donors, while pretending to be for the “little guy.” Thrush wants to make sure, as he puts it that he’s not “fucking anything up.”

We recently wrote about how the Clinton campaign attempts to skew the numbers with small dollar donors, as Trump has over 2,600,000 donations under $200. Clinton’s money is mostly from Wall Street, fat cat millionaires and billionaires, corrupt governments, labor unions, and so on. Clinton has been bought and paid for.

And what we see here by way of WikiLeaks is Politico’s attempt to provide cover.
