#Podesta15 emails reveal Clinton team conspired with media hack to invent Trump-Putin connection
"That's good, sooner it's clarified the better, and the stronger the better," Budowski replies, later adding: "Best approach is to slaughter Donald for his bromance with Putin, but not go too far betting on Putin re Syria."
Comment: What these mendacious manipulators don't realize is that Putin's popularity has gone way up since Russia intervened in Syria, so tying The Donald to it can only improve his chances of winning in November!
Here's the whole email from 'Brent' to Podesta, telling him what line to take (yes, the 'journalist' is giving the orders, not the other way around!):
#Podesta15 emails reveal Clinton team conspired with media hack to invent Trump-Putin connection https://www.sott.net/article/331848-Podesta15-emails-reveal-Clinton-team-conspired-with-media-hack-to-invent-Trump-Putin-connection
The exchange of emails between Clinton campaign chair John Podesta and Clinton ally and columnist Brent Budowski was among the batch of around 1,000 emails from Podesta's account released by WikiLeaks on Saturday.
In a December 21, 2015 email, Budowski slates Clinton's position on fighting ISIS before advising Podesta to draw Putin into her attacks on US presidential election rival Trump.
Budowski's email follows a discussion with Podesta on how to best position the former secretary of state on the issue of tackling ISIS.
Budowski warns that Clinton is not coming down strongly enough on fighting ISIS and that her support for President Barack Obama's approach is a potential "death ray to her candidacy in a general election."
