WikiLeaks: State Dept. Told Clinton What Emails it Was About to Release

Keep ’em coming Wikileaks. In new emails released by Wikileaks, the State Department provided Hillary Clinton’s campaign with detailed information about emails it was about to release in response to Freedom of Information Act requests.

The emails referenced speeches by former President Bill Clinton (referred to by his initials as “WJC”) and did not include emails from Hillary Clinton. Clinton aide Heather Samuelson wrote an email March 17, 2015 about the State Department’s upcoming releases, according to the WikiLeaks hacks.

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

State Department spokesman John Kirby said that it is standard to share documents that are subject to FOIA requests with outside agencies if those agencies have “propriety information” in the documents.

Bill Clinton received invitations to speak in Turkey and Canada, according to the emails. He declined the Turkey invitation and accepted the Canadian one.

The Daily Caller reported that in previous WikiLeaks releases, the Obama administration is shown to have coordinated with Clinton’s campaign on talking points regarding Clinton’s use of a private email server.

The Washington Post editorial board looked at the WikiLeaks emails and praised the Democratic candidate for how she appears in them.

 “The Hillary Clinton that emerges is a knowledgeable, balanced political veteran with sound policy instincts and a mature sense of how to sustain a decent, stable democracy,” the board wrote.

The emails WikiLeaks released apparently come from the account of Clinton campaign chairman John Podesta. Clinton spokesman Brian Fallon slammed the WikiLeaks on Twitter.

Fallon is referencing charges that Russia helped with WikiLeaks’ hacks, according to The New York Times.
