Latest October Surprise WikiLeaks Emails: Joe Biden Mole, 'Friends Of Hillary Clinton' List, And Sanders Camp Slam

Zachary Volkert

Hillary Clinton's campaign was hit with the latest October surprise WikiLeaks emails on Wednesday morning -- the most recent batch of the trove that founder Julian Assange says will end the Democratic nominee's campaign.

Since the Wikileaks started flowing several months ago, Clinton has found herself up against the formidable foe of the words of her own campaign. Theories that the Democratic National Committee (DNC) collaborated with Hillary's people to assure that she beat out Bernie Sanders were backed up with significant evidence, and even resulted in the stepping down of DNC Chairman Debbie Wasserman Schwartz. October surprise's offering was slated to be even more damaging.

The latest collection of emails might not contain anything quite as influential as that particular WikiLeaks revelation, but it does reference the Sanders campaign in a way that is irking his supporters. October surprise's newest addition shows Clinton's chairman John Podesta talking about ways to "throw a bone" to Bernie primary voters. At one point, he suggests cutting down the number of superdelegates in an effort to placate Sanders supporters

"Why not throw Bernie a bone and reduce the super delegates in the future... his people will think they've "won" something from the Party Establishment. And it functionally doesn't make any difference anyway. They win. We don't lose. Everyone is happy."

Another fellow left-leaning politician that gets a mention in the WikiLeaks "surprise" emails is Joe Biden. The message in question -- sent last October -- doesn't reveal the exact activities of sender Ron Klein, but it does seem to indicate that he had a hand in provoking a "Biden demise," and, as no surprise, made him unwelcome with that particular camp as a result.

"Thanks for inviting me into the campaign, and for sticking with me during the Biden anxiety. You are a great friend and a great leader. It's been a little hard for me to play such a role in the Biden demise - and I am definitely dead to them -- but I'm glad to be on Team HRC, and glad that she had a great debate last night."
"We should be thoughtful about any group that wants to rent Friend of Hillary list now because there is interest. This is also probably best discussed off email."

Despite the clear swipes at his campaign unearthed by WikiLeaks, Bernie has continued with his message that the October surprise emails are secondary to what he views as the real focus of the 2016 presidential election: defeating Donald Trump.
