Hacked email shows co­or­di­na­tion be­tween Clin­ton camp and State Depart­ment

Jamaica Gleaner - - INTERNATIONAL NEWS -

A NEWLY re­leased hacked email from the Clin­ton cam­paign shows that a State Depart­ment aide ap­peared to co­or­di­nate with cam­paign ad­vis­ers hours be­fore Hil­lary Clin­ton’s use of pri­vate emails were first de­tailed in a news ac­count.

The email re­leased yes­ter­day by Wik­ileaks shows the aide pro­vided Clin­ton staffers with the agency’s of­fi­cial re­sponse to a New York Times re­porter. That was ahead of the news­pa­per’s March 2015 story that Clin­ton had used pri­vate email to con­duct all of her work-re­lated busi­ness as sec­re­tary of state.

Wik­ileaks has been re­leas­ing thou­sands of emails stolen from cam­paign chair­man John Podesta.

State Depart­ment spokesman John Kirby said the depart­ment would not com­ment on “al­leged leaked doc­u­ments.” But he noted that the depart­ment has had to com­mu­ni­cate with Clin­ton’s rep­re­sen­ta­tives “to en­sure ac­cu­racy”.

Mean­while, Don­ald Trump’s wife, Me­la­nia, will make a rare pub­lic ap­pear­ance, de­liv­er­ing a get-out-the


vote speech in the Philadel­phia sub­urbs to­day. The speech will fo­cus on her hus­band’s vi­sion for Amer­i­can women, chil­dren and fam­i­lies.

Trump’s cam­paign said Mrs Trump will also speak about the for­mer model and im­mi­grant’s “real Amer­i­can story”. She will also talk about the “kind of ded­i­cated, strong and com­mit­ted first lady” she would be.

The visit will be Mrs Trump’s first solo ap­pear­ance of the cam­paign.
