Earlier today Jennifer Palmieri, Director of Communications for Hillary Clinton’s campaign, sent a tweet imploring the public to ignore any “whopper” Wikileaks that that come out in the next few days.
Palmieri claims that if a ‘whopper’ Wikileaks comes out that it is “probably fake”. Note the keyword in this sentence is “probably”, as she is careful not to be caught in a lie down the road when she can’t dispute the validity of Wikileaks. This begs the question, what is the Clinton campaign so scared of in the Wikileaks emails that they would feel the need to send a preemptive message trying to steer attention away from it only days before the election?
Julian Assange, founder of Wikileaks, took offense to Palmieri’s accusations of fake emails being released and promptly responded.
“Biggest ‘whoppers’ are those your campaign has been telling. Wikileaks will continue its perfect record.”
Indeed, in the 10 years since Wikileaks was founded they have produced over 10 million documents, not once have they been proved wrong or have faked a single release, giving them a reputation of being 100% reliable. The same cannot be said of Hillary Clinton, her campaign and the mainstream media.
It’s also worth noting that although the Clinton campaign has tried to downplay or brush off the significance of the Podesta emails, they have yet to claim that any of them are forged.
So, what’s so damaging in the yet to be released Wikileak’s emails that Jennifer Palmieri is so worried about? Is Assange planning a pre-election day bombshell, making good on the promise that future revelations would put Hillary Clinton in jail? If Wikileaks has something explosive on Hillary Clinton, they better hurry up, as in a little over 24 hours voters will be hitting the polls.
