Wikileaks Reveal Plot To Elevate Trump In Podesta Emails
Clinton plot to make Trump unpalatable
A new batch of emails released by Wikileaks has revealed that there was a secret plot to 'elevate' Donald Trump.
The emails outline a suspicious plot from members of the Democrats including Hillary Clinton and John Podesta.
The memos seem to be plotting the elevation of Trump in order to make him unpalatable.
Could this be a plot that actually backfired on the Clintons?
'The DailyMail reports: This memo is intended to outline the strategy and goals a potential Hillary Clinton presidential campaign would have regarding the 2016 Republican presidential field,' the email that was sent to the Democratic National Committee on April 7, 2015, began.
The Clinton Campaign allegedly discussed ways to elevate Donald Trump and other 'extreme' Republican candidates to make the party's eventual nominee 'unpalatable'
'Our hope is that the goal of a potential HRC campaign and the DNC would be one-in-the-same: to make whomever the Republicans nominate unpalatable to a majority of the electorate.'
The email then outlined three ways the party planned to reach its goal: forcing all Republican candidates into extreme positions, undermining their credibility and trust with voters, and to 'muddy the water' on any attacks made against Hillary Clinton.
Ben Carson was another former candidate named in the email, which described how the party allegedly wanted to make the eventual Republican nominee 'unpalatable'
'We don’t want to marginalize the more extreme candidates, but make them more "Pied Piper" candidates who actually represent the mainstream of the Republican Party,' the email read.
'We need to be elevating the Pied Piper candidates so that they are leaders of the pack and tell the press to them seriously.'
Saturday's release comes after Wikileaks published emails from Podesta on Friday.
One of them, sent by campaign research director Tony Carrk in January this year, points out 'flags' in Clinton's paid speeches.
'We need to be elevating the Pied Piper candidates so that they are leaders of the pack and tell the press to them seriously,' the alleged email read.

Carrk appeared to have written potential damaging headlines, forecasting how her comments could be perceived. One of these possible headlines states: 'Clinton admits she is out of touch.'
The next paragraph includes the following excerpt, from a speech Clinton gave in 2014.
'And now, obviously, I'm kind of far removed because the life I've lived and the economic, you know, fortunes that my husband and I now enjoy, but I haven't forgotten it.'

The speech, which could have been damaging to Clinton, could have been an 'October Surprise' released in time to influence the outcome of the presidential election.
But he cancelled it and instead spoke by video link in Berlin on Tuesday.
The Clinton camp refused to confirm whether the emails are authentic when speaking to Buzzfeed on Friday.
