New Wikileaks e-mails have revealed that the Democratic National Committee colluded with CNN to setup the questions that would be asked of Donald Trump and Ted Cruz on two separate occasions.
One e-mail from Wikileaks on April 25th, 2016 from Democratic National Committee research director Lauren Dillon, lets other committee members know that they need “Trump Questions for CNN” according to the subject header, and the e-mail body states…
“Wolf Blitzer is interviewing Trump on Tues ahead of his foreign policy address on Wed. Please send me thoughts by 10:30 AM tomorrow.”
CNN journalist Wolf Blitzer, or someone close to him, was keeping the Democratic National Committee in the loop when interviewing Trump so that the DNC could coordinate what sort of questions could be asked.
A second e-mail on April 28th, 2016 from Lauren Dillon lets other Democratic Committee members know that “Cruz [is] on CNN”, writing…
“CNN is looking for questions. Please send some topical/interesting ones. Maybe a couple on Fiorina. Someone please take point and send them all together by 3pm.”
The “Fiorina” query relates to Carly Fiorina, who was named as Cruz’ VP pick a day before on April 27th, according to a report by CNN.
CNN was apparently working very closely with the DNC in keeping them in the loop on their coverage of Republican primary candidates.
In another e-mail on May 8th, 2016, there’s a “CNN [Statue of the Union]” e-mail from Lauren Dillon to other members of the DNC, this time informing them about an interview CNN conducted with Sarah Palin, writing…
“Not for sharing before it airs obviously but Palin is asked about Paul Ryan distancing himself from Trump and said he is trying to prep to run in 2020 and he is going to lose like Eric Cantor and she endorses his primary opponent. She also disagrees with Trump on changing the abortion piece of the platform.”
Apparently CNN let the DNC in on interviews and other moves made by the Republicans so the Democratic National Committee was always one step ahead. This kind of media collusion happened frequently, with The Guardian and Huffington Post working closely with the Clinton campaign, along with other e-mails showing CNN and the Associated Press working and colluding with Clinton’s campaign to run hit-pieces on Sanders and discredit other nominees. There was even a Politico writer who was found to have been colluding with Clinton’s campaign, referring to himself as a “hack”.
Following the Wikileaks and Project Veritas videos implicating the DNC in a scandal to invoke violence at Trump rallies, CNN and interim chair for the DNC, Donna Brazile, parted ways. But the new leaks now reveal why CNN and the DNC were so interconnected.
This is just further proof that mainstream news media have been working closely with a specific party to stack the election in the favor of Clinton.
