As part of the series of leaked emails from Clinton operative John Podesta’s account comes the revelation that Podesta had a very cozy relationship with one of the top officials at the Justice Department charged with investigating Hillary’s corruption.
Just one day after Hillary’s Beghazi testimony in front of the House one year ago, Podesta had dinner with a group of well-connected supporters, including Assistant Attorney General for Legislative Affairs Peter Kadzik.
Podesta and Kadzik were best buds – at least on e-mail. The WikiLeaks dump shows they communicated all the time, The Daily Caller points out. In one email from January, Kadzik and Podesta, who were classmates at Georgetown Law School in the 1970s, discussed plans to celebrate Podesta’s birthday. And in another sent last May, Kadzik’s son emailed Podesta asking for a job on the Clinton campaign.
At the birthday dinner was Podesta, Kadzik, some super-lobbyists and other Washington insiders.
It was a real “cozy” relationship between the Clinton campaign and State, and one that seemed to ensure that nothing much would come of any investigation of Hillary – no matter what it revealed.
“The political appointees in the Obama administration, especially in the Department of Justice, appear to be very partisan in nature and I don’t think had clean hands when it comes to the investigation of the private email server,” says Matthew Whitaker, the executive director of the Foundation for Accountability and Civic Trust, a government watchdog group.
“It’s the kind of thing the American people are frustrated about is that the politically powerful have insider access and have these kind of relationships that ultimately appear to always break to the benefit of Hillary Clinton,” he added, comparing the Podesta-Kadzik meetings to the revelation that Attorney General Loretta Lynch met in private with Bill Clinton at the airport in Phoenix days before the FBI and DOJ investigating Hillary Clinton.
If it’s anything that gets Hillary Clinton elected it is this – Americans know the fix is in and they’ve become numb to it. Like almost every politician in the past, Hillary and her team know how to work the system, who to schmooze, who to demonize and who to give money to.
This is why Donald Trump represents such a threat to the establishment. He doesn’t know – or care – how to play the game. He is the game. He’ll make his own rules and in trying to “drain the swamp,” hopefully all this crony, oligarchical capitalism will go away with it.
