Well, Of Course Pres. Carter Voted For Bernie! WikiLeaks Showed Jimmy Was Still Lukewarm On Clintons [Opinion]

After all these years, it turns out former President Jimmy Carter is still not the Clintons’ biggest fan.

In the Hillary Clinton email files published by WikiLeaks, one email always stood out for me. Of all the leaked emails, I found the email in which Jimmy Carter explains appropriate communication towards North Korea with Hillary Clinton among the most interesting. It’s also a part of a string of many other emails, but the most direct link to President Jimmy Carter’s directive to Hillary Clinton that I found carries the email ID 22063.

“Hillary: As I explained to you on the phone, I don’t think it is appropriate to tell them that I will come only if they agree in advance to release the women. Your response was, in effect, ‘They have already agreed.’ Is this correct? If not, I will go, by commercial airline if necessary, representing The Carter Center, and try to induce them to approve the release. JC”

The email seemed to imply that Carter felt that he needed to help explain the kind of political decorum needed when interacting with the hostile state North Korea. Seeing that email, I felt almost certain Carter would have preferred that Bernie Sanders won at the Democratic National Convention rather than Hillary Clinton.

Monday night, former president Jimmy Carter and should-have-been-president Bernie Sanders appeared together in front of over 70 human rights defenders at an event hosted by the Carter Center. It was at that event that Carter revealed, for apparently the first time, that he voted for Bernie Sanders.

On Monday evening, the world learned that without a doubt, the 39th president of the United States, Jimmy Carter, had hoped that Bernie Sanders would become No. 45, even over former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.

Carter asks a crowd, “Ya’ll see why I voted for him?”
