Billionaire socialite Lynn Forester de Rothschild advised the Hillary Clinton campaign to craft a message to address progressive heartthrob Elizabeth Warren’s “inaccurate conclusions” about economics, according to emails published by Wikileaks.
Rothschild, who married into the renowned “old money” family of French banking titans, forwarded a Wall Street Journal article about Warren’s criticism of Clinton economics to top campaign aide Cheryl Mills in January 2015, several months before Hillary formally declared for president.
“I think this blog overstates where Warren was going, but we need to craft the economic message for Hillary so that Warren’s inaccurate conclusions are addressed,” wrote the socialite. Past releases of Clinton’s private emails have shown that the socialite is a close friend of Hillary’s who enjoys a direct relationship with her.
Additional WikiLeaks emails reveal that Hillary Clinton and her top staff were constantly taking advice from wealthy donors, and courting new ones to add to the “long line of Wall Street people” clamoring for influence in Clinton World.
Morgan Stanley executive Tom Nides, for example, was denied a formal role in the campaign, presumably because of his Wall Street ties, but emails reveal that Nides routinely advised the campaign on sensitive issues, including on how to deal with Hillary’s email scandal.
Clinton confidate Neera Tanden, who has been exposed as a trash-talking potty mouth in emails published by WiklLeaks, was not a fan of Lady de Rothschild, referring to her as “crazy” in an April 2015 exchange with Clinton campaign chairman John Podesta.
