In the latest bombshell to come from the new book “Shattered: Inside Hillary Clinton’s Doomed Campaign” by Jonathan Allen and Amie Parnes, allegations surface that Hillary Clinton spied on her own staff. Back in 2008 after she lost to Barack Obama in the Democratic primary, Clinton had a staffer look through emails of other campaign workers:
“To this end, she had a trusted aide access the campaign’s server and download the emails sent and received by top staffers.
“’She believed her campaign had failed her — not the other way around — and she wanted ‘to see who was talking to who, who was leaking to who,’ said a source familiar with the operation,’ Allen and Parnes reveal in the book. “Her political director, Guy Cecil, had talked with members of the media from his campaign account. Her chief strategist, Mark Penn, was a tyrant. And far too many of her minions had fought for turf and status rather than votes.’
“Rattled by what the emails revealed, Clinton began calling meetings to evaluate what had gone wrong. The staffers had no idea she’d read their emails.“
We can only imagine how awkward that must have been.
