The emails currently roiling the US presidential campaign are part of some unknown digital collection amassed by the troublesome Anthony Weiner, but if your purpose is to understand the clique of people who dominate Washington today, the emails that really matter are the ones being slowly released by WikiLeaks from the hacked account of Hillary Clinton’s campaign chair John Podesta. They are last week’s scandal in a year running over with scandals, but in truth their significance goes far beyond mere scandal: they are a window into the soul of the Democratic party and into the dreams and thoughts of the class to whom the party answers.
You will never get a clearer view into exactly what the (D)emocratic party is all about, than you are getting right now: Debbie Wasserman-Schultz, Huma Abedin, Cheryl Mills, John Podesta, Donna Brazile, Terri McAuliffe, and of course the candidate herself, Hillary Clinton.
They are all filthier than a 6-year old coming out of a mud pit; there is not a crime that they have not committed; nor a pillar of our Nation upon which they have not publicly urinated, at this point. And they have been doing it this way for at least the last 50 years.
It’s isn’t just what they do, IT’S WHO THEY ARE.
…and they know that they are being exposed. They know that their days of power and grandeur are coming to an end. And they are afraid, very afraid of the consequences.
They should be.
