Emails Reveal Relationship Between Google and Clinton Campaign

21

New emails surfaced on Wikileaks which reveal the close relationship between Google and members of Hillary Clinton’s campaign staff.

It seems that there are three outcomes of Hillary Clinton becoming president of the United States (assuming that President Barack Obama doesn’t quietly pardon her right before the end of his presidency):

1. Hillary Clinton’s Presidency Will Be Shaped By Scandal

Revelations that both Facebook and Google have been working with the democrats and Hillary Clinton should worry people. Social media has immense power over psychology and voting by picking and choosing the stories which go “trending” and making Republican voters feel like they are in the minority, despite always being known as the silent majority. This election has brought a lot of attention to voter fraud, the rigging of elections, and has been a complete distraction from the issues. Should Hillary Clinton be elected President of the United States, her term is likely to be quite similar to the end of her husband, Bill Clinton’s. Indictments, congressional hearings, and distrust by the public. Should Hillary Clinton be impeached, what would a presidency under her Vice Presidential candidate Tim Kaine (governor of Virginia).

2. Foreign Relations Will Continue To Worsen With Russia

While I type this, our nation sits at Defcon 4, due to worsening relations with Russia and North Korea’s continued testing and launching of nuclear missiles… with fears that eventually they may successfully fire a missile which can land a blow reaching past their own borderline.

The private email correspondence was stolen from John Podesta, who works as Hillary Clinton’s campaign chair, and was subsequently published by WikiLeaks (owned by Julian Assange – who a previous email showed that Hillary Clinton wanted to drone strike). The emails contain numerous references to Google and it’s parent company Alphabet’s executive chairman, Eric Schmidt.

The emails reveal a relationship with Schmidt and Clinton dates back to at least 2008 when the emails reveal that Google loaned their jet to members of Clinton’s campaign staff on numerous instances.

Based on an email sent in February of 2015 to Podesta from Tina Flournoy — who serves as Bill Clinton’s chief of staff — Google planned to lend its company jet for a trip to Africa. Podesta wrote, “FYI. They are donating the Google plane for the Africa trip.”

It’s not clear what trip they’re talking about, but the email chain also said that Schmidt wanted to meet “WJC,” shorthand for “William Jefferson Clinton.” Given the timing, they may be talking about Bill Clinton’s nine-day trip in May 2015 to Tanzania, Kenya, Liberia and Morocco. The annual trek to Africa included a group of 20 donors and supporters, several of whom were “expected to give generously” to the Hillary Clinton campaign, according to Politico.

Both Podesta and Flournoy wrote that the Google plane has a bad habit of breaking down. While Podesta said it would be a “nice way to travel,” both of them mentioned issues with the plane in the past.

“Yes, until it breaks down in Ethiopia — as it did the last time we used it,” Flournoy wrote.

Podesta responded: “Funny, the only time I was on it, it broke down in Rwanda and we had to fly Ethiopian Airlines home.”

The emails also say that Schmidt had met with Hillary Clinton and spoken with Podesta.

Google did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

Schmidt’s involvement
In April 2014, Schmidt sent Hillary Clinton aide Cheryl Mills a detailed plan for the 2016 campaign, writing “If we get started soon, we will be in a very strong position to execute well for 2016.” The plan laid out ideas for the campaign, like where it should be headquartered and who should be hired.

In an email to Clinton campaign manager Robby Mook the same month, Podesta wrote that Schmidt seemed eager to be a part of an exploratory committee and “clearly wants to be head outside advisor, but didn’t seem like he wanted to push others out.” Podesta wrote that Schmidt was “ready to fund, advise recruit talent, etc.” and was “more deferential on structure than I expected.”

Podesta encouraged Mook and Mills to meet with Schmidt to discuss his involvement with the campaign. According to Podesta, Schmidt pressed Podesta to look for young coders “preferably in outer borough NYC” and thought Northern California was too expensive for any kind of Clinton campaign home base.

Schmidt publicly endorsed Clinton in June.
