    question get to Clinton campaign?
    [​IMG] by Brian Stelter @brianstelter October 11, 2016: 7:11 PM ET

    Interim chair of the Democratic National Committee Donna Brazile delivers remarks on the second day of the Democratic National Convention.
    How did the text of a CNN-TV One town hall question about the death penalty end up in the hands of the Clinton campaign ahead of time?
    In a hacked email published by Wikileaks, Democratic National Committee official Donna Brazile appeared to tell Clinton campaign communications director Jennifer Palmieri that "from time to time I get the questions in advance." The March 12 email foreshadowed a question asked by TV One host Roland Martin at the March 13 town hall.

    Brazile was both a DNC vice chair and CNN political commentator at the time. But CNN flatly denied any coordination. "We have never, ever given a town hall question to anyone beforehand," a CNN spokeswoman said.

    Martin did not deny sharing information with Brazile. Instead, when asked by CNNMoney, he said "my questions were shared with my executive producer and several members of my TV One team."

    When asked in a followup question if he would explicitly rule out any sharing of questions with Brazile, Martin did not respond.

    In a telephone interview on Tuesday, Brazile said she was choosing not to view any of the emails stolen by Wikileaks. "This is exactly what the Russians intended to do. And they're doing it," she said.

    Brazile emphasized that "I had no access to any questions" for any debate or town hall.

    Brazile became the interim chair of the DNC in July after Debbie Wasserman Schultz resigned. At that point, her commentator deals with CNN and ABC were suspended.

    She now leads both the organization's response to cyberattacks and its campaign efforts.

    A political commentator like Brazile would never be in the room during debate or town hall planning sessions.

    CNN reporters and producers typically prepare in what is informally known as the "cone of silence." Secrecy is prioritized and access is restricted during the prep sessions.

    But Brazile's March 12 email to Palmieri included the text of a potential question about the death penalty. A similarly-worded question was read by Martin at the town hall the next day. He introduced an exonerated former death row inmate who asked Clinton about her view on the matter.

    The town hall itself was unusual -- it was a joint production of CNN and TV One, a cable channel targeting African American viewers. Both Clinton and Bernie Sanders participated in Ohio.

    Martin moderated for TV One and Jake Tapper moderated for CNN.

    Martin said Tuesday that the questions he drafted were "designed for both candidates. It wasn't until we met on Sunday that some of the questions were kept and others discarded."

    As for the email itself, Palmieri replied by starting a new email chain to share Clinton's talking points about the topic.

    "That sequence suggests that Brazile may have been forwarding the question for her own purposes — that is, to be prepared for some panel discussion about the death penalty. If so, it shows just how faithfully a CNN contributor seeks to toe the Clinton line," Washington Post media critic Erik Wemple wrote Tuesday.

    Wemple and other journalists immediately raised questions about Brazile's complicated relationships.

    Commentators like Brazile are not journalists, but they appear on the air to share political perspectives and insights.

    New York Times reporter Nick Confessore said the email exchange is a "good argument against having campaign surrogates on staff at your network."

    Tuesday's revelation came from a trove of hacked emails published by Wikileaks. The emails came from the account of Clinton campaign chair John Podesta.

    The Clinton campaign and the DNC has strongly objected to the release of the emails and has blamed Russia for cyberattacks "aimed at interfering with our election."

    Other emails published by Wikileaks have shown more mundane interactions between campaign aides and journalists.

    In some of the emails, Clinton aides speak bluntly and negatively about journalists from CNN and other outlets.

    In a June 23, 2015 email, Podesta asks, "Why is Jake Tapper such a" and uses an explicit term for the male anatomy.

    Tapper had asked for an hour-long interview with the candidate.

    Palmieri replied and said "That is the right question."

    Tapper picked up on the email and shared it with his Twitter followers last week.

    also funny - the Clinton people are choosing not to deny wikileaks; instead they are blaming the Russians for telling Americans what Democrats are actually saying behind the scenes.


    One of Clinton's campaign managers got triggered into fighting with Wikileaks on twitter last night, saying it's all the Russians' fault. Lol, dummy. Just deny it like any smart politician would do.

    They may be feeling the heat. Flipping through I also saw a lady anchor questioning a Hillary supporter congressman about the emails and leaks.
    He stayed hard on the Russia blah blah blah... she at least asked "is it ok for a campaign to be in touch with the DOJ during an investigation ...."?

    You know that headline at the bottom of the cnn screen hat shows the current topic?

    My friend started posting memes of the Iraqi information minister with those words across the bottom.... It was fucking uncanny how much those headlines sound like propaganda when you see it that way

    She was given the question ahead of time verbatim. How you could even pretend to justify this is beyond reason.

    I dont think Assange has anything good.

    The Russians, no doubt, have her emails, and no doubt will hold them until after the election. The day after she is sworn in, they will drop them to cripple her and throw America into a fight pitting the Republican Congress against the President, and making her a lame duck from day 1, if she survives at all.

    Her impeachment will mean they dont face a strong negotiator like Trump, or a seasoned fighter like Hillary and the Clinton machine.

    Instead, the get the pathetic, over his head lunatic, President Tim Kaine.

    (Or, they just blackmail her with them to win concessions).

    Is this how you answer whether you did it or not?

    This is equivalent to putting your fingers in your ears saying, 'nah nah nah nah nah nah'.
