Top Clinton Supporter Privately Shreds Email Handling: ‘Whole Thing is F***ing Insane’

Neera TandenIn one of the hacked emails released by Wikileaks Thursday, a top Hillary Clinton ally and supporter tore into Clinton’s decision to use a private email server for government business while Secretary of State.

Center for American Progress president Neera Tanden emailed campaign chairman John Podesta in August 2015 to give him a heads-up about an upcoming CNN poll: “I’m doing [Jake Tapper] and they have a national poll coming out. They wouldn’t tell me results but if I had to guess… it will show Bernie doing pretty well w/ Hillary and doing as well against Jeb or close to it.”

Evidently Tanden’s instincts were correct, as she began venting in an email to Podesta the next day. “Do we actually know who told Hillary she could use a private email? And has that person been drawn and quartered?” she asked.

“Like whole thing is fucking insane,” she concluded.
