WIKILEAKS: Frantic John Podesta Sought Senior Health Official’s Advice on ‘Anxious’ Hillary

Hillary Clinton campaign manager John Podesta contacted Health and Human Services Secretary Sylvia Mathews Burwell — the nation’s top health official — in a frantic attempt to calm his “anxious candidate,” according to emails published by WikiLeaks.


The WikiLeaks emails have already revealed that Hillary Clinton’s top campaign aides were extremely sensitive regarding the condition of Hillary’s “head.” In one April 2015 email, top confidante Huma Abedin, the estranged wife of notorious pervert Anthony Weiner, warned colleagues that Hillary was “still not perfect in her head” and would be unable to go off-script at an upcoming campaign rally.

In another email from August 2015, top campaign aides, including Podesta, were discussing the best way to approach Clinton regarding a sensitive campaign-related issue. Communications aide Jennifer Palmieri told Podesta he should call Hillary and “sober her up some.”

Hillary’s love of drinking is well documented, but this email was sent at around 4:30 in the afternoon.
