Hillary connected many dots that I think most people, even those who have been following the revelations of Russian hacking and the 2016 election post-mortems, might have missed.
Some of the biggest points were on how the Wikileaks e-mail dumps always seemed to be timed a little too perfectly and the Trump people seemed to be aware that they were coming. Hillary concludes that it took help from Americans to weaponize the dumps. It eluded many that the Podesta e-mails were released within 1 hour of the release of the Access Hollywood tape. Nobody believes that’s a coincidence.
Also, her insights on the state of the DNC last summer were actually surprising.
“I set up my campaign and we have our own data operation. I get the nomination, so I’m now the nominee of the Democratic Party. I inherited nothing from the Democratic Party,” she said.
“I mean, it was bankrupt, it was on the verge of insolvency, its data was mediocre to poor, nonexistent, wrong,” Clinton added.
Quite damning to the legacy of Wasserman Schultz, who was, by the way, supported by Hillary. That follow up question should be interesting.
Whereas, the RNC had put millions into their data gathering after 2012 vowing to never be behind the DNC again. Add to that the work of Cambridge Analytica, which was created by the Mercers (who introduced Bannon to Trump), and Trump was handed state of the art data.
