Huma Abedin convinced Clinton campaign manager, Robby Mook, that they should lie to Hillary if necessary to stop her self destructive behavior. That’s the newest from the Wikileaks email hacks.
At issue was Hillary’s refusal to say no to Bill Clinton doing speeches for big banks. Hillary really wanted him to give a speech to their favorite Wall Street cronies including Morgan Stanley.
However, Huma and Robby believed that Hillary’s money grubbing with wall street banks was a huge threat to the campaign. Now that Hillary was running for president, they needed to stop kissing the ass of wall street.
I think we need a paradigm shift in how this world operates we have to convince HRC and probably WJC that her meeting with 200 people doesn’t help her.
Unfortunately for Huma and Robby, even Bill Clinton didn’t understand why licking the boots of the big banks during a campaign roll out was a terrible idea. Here’s Robby expressing more concern:
WJC (Bill Clinton) speeches Yes the issue is that if we’re announcing on the 12th/13th and he’s speaking to a wall street bank on the 15th, that’s begging for a bad rollout.
Huma finally came up with a solution:
Ok HRC very strongly did not want him to cancel that particular speech. I think if John (Podesta) is getting involved in this scheduling matter, he must feel strongly. I will have to tell her that WJC chose to cancel it, not that we asked
WHOA! Huma decides they have to lie to Hillary and tell her that it was Bill’s idea to cancel the speech when it was actually their request. They have to convince Hillary that Bill is refusing to suck-up to wall street, otherwise she will demand that he does it.
Huma is really earning her paycheck here. She knows exactly how stubborn and out-of-touch with reality Hillary is. In the end Huma and Robby prevailed, Bill Clinton canceled the speech.
