The hits to the Democratic National Committee just keep on coming. The latest WikiLeak dump showed that the DNC tried to provide CNN anchor, Wolf Blitzer, with questions to ask Republican Nominee, Donald Trump, during an interview.
8,263 emails were released on Sunday night which included an email from a staffer for the CNN network asking DNC staffers what questions they should ask the Republican candidate.
Questions were also requested for a planned appearance by former presidential candidate Ted Cruz. In an April 28th email sent to DNC research director, Lauren Dillon, labeled “Cruz on CNN” it read, “CNN is looking for questions. Please send some topical/interesting ones.”
And mere days before that, on April 25, Dillon asked for questions from DNC officials and staffers that would be considered for a Wolf Blitzer interview with Trump.
The email read, “Wolf Blitzer is interviewing Trump on Tues (sic) ahead of his foreign policy address on Wed.” There were numerous questions that were submitted by a group of DNC staffers for 68-year-old Blitzer to ask the Republican nominee.
Christina Freundlich who is the DNC deputy communications director was disappointed when the Trump interview was canceled. The interview did finally take place with the real estate mogul on May, 4.
Freundlich previously worked for the Iowa Democratic Party but was fired when she took a smiling selfie in front of a deadly New York City fire in March 2015. She was hired as a spokeswoman for the DNC later that same year in July 2015.
Another DNC email chain appears to show that Washington Post columnist, Dana Milbank, asked for assistance from the DNC for research regarding a column he wrote about Trump in April 2016.
The column he wrote titled, “The Ten Plagues of Trump,” which featured a laundry list of things that Donald Trump deemed “outrageous.” Deputy Communications Director Eric Walker sent the email on with the caption, “Milbank doing a Passover-themed 10 plagues of Trump.”
Walker was provided with a lengthy list from staffers that they felt could help Milbank with his research. One of the “plagues” listed in the email focusing around Trump’s remarks towards Fox News anchor Megyn Kelly. “You could see there was blood coming out of her eyes, blood coming out of her wherever.”
With election day tomorrow and many still undecided on a candidate, this incriminating evidence against the Democratic party is bound to influence voters.
