Members of Hillary Clinton’s US presidential campaign discussed potential outcomes of the upcoming election in 2014, five months before Clinton announced her intention to seek the Democratic Party’s nomination, emails released by WikiLeaks on Friday showed.
WASHINGTON (Sputnik) — The email was included in the latest batch of emails from Podesta’s private account that WikiLeaks has released.
"I was just talking to Simas (who is putting together a memo for H on 2014 take-aways) and he has some really interesting stats that really illustrate how completely different 2014 will be from 2016 (and how dangerous it is to read too much into an off year)," Clinton campaign manager Robby Mook said in an email dated November 3, 2014.
Mook’s message referring to David Simas, who was at the time and remains an assistant to US President Barack Obama responsible for White House political strategy and outreach, was sent to longtime Clinton aide Cheryl Mills and campaign chairman John Podesta. It cited data on Republican victories in US states that had become battlegrounds in the 2012 election, as well as Obama's own successes there.
Amid rampant speculation that began with her loss to Obama in Democratic primary voting in 2008, Clinton officially announced her current White House bid on April 12, 2015. The nominee and former secretary of state faces Republican Donald Trump in the US election on November 8.
