Clinton attack featuring Miss Universe was months in the making, email shows

Clinton - Miss UniverseThe Clinton campaign’s recent attacks on Donald Trump for his comments about a beauty queen’s weight problems were months in the making, according to an opposition research report uncovered in emails released by WikiLeaks on Sunday.

Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton invoked those comments during the first presidential debate on Sept. 26. Near the end of the showdown, during a sustained riff about the Republican nominee’s past remarks about women, Clinton cited the case of Miss Universe 1996 Alicia Machado.

“And one of the worst things he said was about a woman in a beauty contest,” Clinton said. “He loves beauty contests, supporting them and hanging around them. And he called this woman ‘Miss Piggy.’ Then he called her ‘Miss Housekeeping,’ because she was Latina. Donald, she has a name.”

Trump responded: “Where did you find this?”

The answer is: in a 157-page opposition research file that Clinton’s campaign had been using since at least Dec. 19, 2015, the day research director Tony Carrk emailed it – and research files on Sens. Ted Cruz and Marco Rubio – to Clinton Campaign Chairman John Podesta. Podesta’s emails were subsequently hacked and more than 25,000 of them have been released so far by anti-secrecy group WikiLeaks.

    We can’t arrest Hillary is same reasons we can’t arrest Obama after 1-22-2017 #1 Can’t arrest them for so called political crimes,in eyes of the constitution it not treason#2 If we did there will be riots in every major cities across the country.#3 we will never convicte them, it will a hung jury

    • Lady_Lbrty

      What are you talking about? Both can absolutely be charged. And no there wouldn’t be “riots if Obama was arrested. Even if there were, it’s NO reason to allow him to get away with what he’s done.

      We have to take the bad with the good! Justice needs to be served and being in fear of riots is just that….Fear! We have no time for cowards!

      • dan miller

    We, the deplorables know she’s guilty but they treat us like we’re stupid. We’re not stupid and obviously much smarter than those that are expected to do their job and don’t. Wouldn’t you think they would be totally humiliated to be acting so ignorant in front of the world.
