An email exchange between Democrat presidential nominee Hillary Clinton’s lawyer, David Kendall, and Eric Tucker of The Associated Press strongly indicated that the two colluded to ensure that the media were reporting news favorable to Clinton.
In the August 2015 email provided by WikiLeaks, Tucker asked Kendall for comment about the FBI reportedly taking possession of a thumb drive that was once in the Clinton camp’s possession.
According to Tucker, he “would gladly accept” being steered away from the potentially damaging story, if that wa what Kendall wanted.
“Hi David,” Tucker began, “We have been told, and we are preparing to report, that the FBI has taken possession of the thumb drive that was once in your possession.”
It is not uncommon for the media to contact someone for their opinion about a fact or issue before putting a story out; speaking with a primary source is just part of prepping a story. However, Tucker went well beyond that.
“This is what we have been informed, and we wanted to see whether there was any sort of comment that could be provided,” he continued. “If you wanted to steer us away and say that we are misinformed, then I would gladly accept that as well.”
He offered Kendall the chance to deny the report even before it came out. He offered to allow AP to be discouraged from reporting what it had learned.
He did add that “we have solid reason to believe this. We’d welcome any comment you can offer. Thanks very much.”
“It’s getting out.”
If the FBI had their hands on a thumb drive of GOP nominee Donald Trump, do you think his camp would be contacted?
