How cozy has Hillary Clinton gotten with billionaire donor George Soros? Cozy enough that her campaign team discussed the importance of keeping him happy at all costs, according to emails published by WikiLeaks:
The email, among thousands allegedly hacked from Clinton campaign Chairman John Podesta, reveals a discussion between several prominent figures – including campaign manager Robby Mook and Clinton aide Huma Abedin – regarding the organization “America Votes.”
“I would only do this for political reasons (ie to make Soros happy),” Mook tells Abedin. “It’s very unclear to me how much AV will matter next cycle. And I haven’t seen then [sic] adding any value this cycle. I also worry a little it will cause donor confusion vis a vis Priorities.”
America Votes is a left-wing activist organization that has received millions of dollars in funding from Soros. And even though Mook didn’t see the “value” in the organization, Clinton certainly saw the value in Soros’s money (emphasis mine):
“She is having dinner with George Soros tonight,” Abedin responds. “Do you know much about America Votes? As Greg Speed explained to me, they are the coordinated campaign for various outside groups. Soros is a big supporter of the group and hes [sic] going to ask her tonight if she will come to a fundraiser for them at his house in December. Thoughts?”
Anything to keep the puppet master happy.
