There are multiple new stories evidencing in the latest WikiLeaks release. Many of those stories surround collusion between U.S. Media and the Hillary Clinton campaign.
Within the most stark of the email releases highlighting the collusion, is an email showing CNN’s Donna Brazile giving Hillary Clinton a head’s up to the questions which were going to be posed in a CNN Town Hall debate hosted by Jake Tapper and Roland Martin.
On March 12th 2016 Donna Brazile emailed the Clinton team with the subject heading: From time to time I get the questions in advance” (link)
The text of the question is this:
The next day, March 13th, Jake Tapper and Roland Martin were conducting the town hall debate between Clinton and Sanders in Ohio. Roland Martin advised producers at CNN of the question he was going to ask Hillary Clinton:
19 states and the District of Columbia have banned the death penalty. 31 states, including Ohio, still have the death penalty. According to the National Coalition to Abolish the Death Penalty, since 1973, 156 people have been on death row and later set free. Since 1976, 1,414 people have been executed in the U.S. That’s 11% of Americans who were sentenced to die, but later exonerated and freed. Should Ohio and the 30 other states join the current list and abolish the death penalty?
Everything about that Roland Martin question is 100% identical to the question Donna Brazile gave to Hillary Clinton’s team as a heads’ up. Even the punctuation and capitalization are identical.
Here’s the way it played out on TV. The Roland Martin “Death Penalty” question is @1:03:22 (video prompted):
The Roland Martin question exactly phrased from the advanced notification given to Hillary Clinton, to tee up Ricky Jackson in the audience:
[Video 01:03:22] …”Secretary Clinton, since 1976, we have executed 1,414 people in this country. Since 1973, 156 who were convicted have been exonerated from the death row. This gentleman here is one of them. This is Ricky Jackson, wrongfully convicted of murder in 1975, he spent 39 years in prison. He is undecided. Ricky, what is your question?”
There is absolutely ZERO DOUBT Donna Brazile, working for CNN, gave Hillary Clinton the exact question that would be asked by Roland Martin. ZERO DOUBT.
CNN Producers had to pre-arrange for Mr. Ricky Jackson to be in the audience, so it would be obtuse in the extreme to think CNN was not a part of this “Death Penalty Question” set-up and arrangement.
Even the insufferable hard core leftists have to admit this was a completely manufactured narrative from start to finish.
