As the latest round of Podesta Wikileaks emails are still being sifted through, the amount of corruption, intimidation and conspiracies coming to light is staggering.
Recall that in August, right before the Democratic National Convention, Wikileaks also exposed emails from the DNC proving that they colluded with the Clinton campaign in order to get her elected while suppressing her challenger Bernie Sanders.
Now, thanks to the Wikileaks Podesta emails, we see just far they were willing to go in order to “punish” Democratic Super Delegates who decided to throw their support behind Sanders, rather than blindly following orders to get behind Clinton’s candidacy.
This latest email, with the subject “Disappointed”, was originally written by Former Clinton Foundation Director, Darnell Strom, to Representative Tulsi Gabbard, a Democrat for Hawaii’s 2nd congressional district. Gabbard was also a Super Delegate for the DNC this year and elected to support Bernie Sanders over Hillary Clinton. Apparently that was a mistake in the eyes of Clinton allies, and Gabbard had to punished.
Darnell Strom writes a strongly worded, and condescending email to Tulsi Gabbard stating that he was “disappointed” to see her resign her position with the DNC to support Bernie Sanders. He continues by saying how “impressed” he was with her intellect, passion and commitment to “getting things done on behalf of the American people”, while also throwing in several statement admonishing Sander’s history with the Democratic party.
Strom also referenced Michael Knives, a Hollywood CAA agent who is known for making donations and throwing major fundraisers for Democratic candidates. Strom bluntly states that “Hillary Clinton will be our party’s nominee” and by Gabbard supporting Sander’s “sinking ship” she is being “disrespectful to Hillary Clinton”.
Finally, Gabbard’s punishment for her support of Sanders is the pulling of any fundraising activities as Strom states, “we no longer trust your judgment so will not be raising money for your campaign“.
The message is clear. Support the will of Hillary Clinton, or incur her wraith and pay a severe price.
The email can be found on Wikileaks at this link.

We were very disappointed to hear that you would resign your position with the DNC so you could endorse Bernie Sanders, a man who has never been a Democrat before. When we met over dinner a couple of years ago I was so impressed by your intellect, your passion, and commitment to getting things done on behalf of the American people. For you to endorse a man who has spent almost 40 years in public office with very few accomplishments, doesn’t fall in line with what we previously thought of you. Hillary Clinton will be our party’s nominee and you standing on ceremony to support the sinking Bernie Sanders ship is disrespectful to Hillary Clinton. A woman who has spent the vast majority of her life in public service and working on behalf of women, families, and the underserved.
You have called both myself and Michael Kives before about helping your campaign raise money, we no longer trust your judgement so will not be raising money for your campaign.

This email goes to show the appalling lack of respect that Clinton’s allies have for Democracy, free will and a delegates choice to support a candidate of their choosing. Anyone who dared to go against the will of the Clintons will endure serious consequences and their political careers made significantly more difficult. This likely isn’t the only Super Delegate to receive such a strongly worded email, as I can only imagine anyone who strayed from the Democratic party’s decision that Hillary Clinton will be their nominee would endure similar misfortunes.
If Hillary Clinton is allowed in the White House, expect similar threats, bullying and blackmail tactics to prevent anyone (even elected officials) from getting in the way of her desires.
This is corruption beyond corruption.
