The steady drip-drip-drip of private emails among Clinton staff insiders being made public continued today, with the latest one demonstrating the significant ideological rift on the Left – and it further validates the mistrust some Democrats have with their presidential nominee.
In an exchange between Clinton campaign leadership and the President of the inappropriately-named Center for American Progress (CAP), “longtime Hillary Clinton aide Jake Sullivan likened supporters of a $15 minimum wage to Soviet-era communists in an email released by WikiLeaks on Monday.”
The email chain is nominally about how the campaign feels about the “Progressive Agenda” being pushed during the spring by folks like NY City Mayor (and former Clinton Senate campaign manager) Bill Di Blasio. The informal back-and-forth shows how little regard the campaign insiders have for not only Di Blasio, but also for the contents of his agenda.
As described by the Daily Caller, the conclusion of the string includes this comment by the CAP President: “And when you say Red Army, you mean the base of the Democratic party, right?”
One has to wonder, with more embarrassing email revelations like this promised by WikiLeaks to come in the next few weeks, just how hard will Clinton’s “Red Army” base fight for her leading up to election day?
