Wikileaks delivered on documents concerning Hillary Clinton it had claimed for months to be harboring safely for the right moment to release — and the contents do not disappoint.

After only a cursory search using Wikileaks invaluable database, “The Podesta Emails” reveal not only direct evidence of media coordination, but an attempt to alleviate the damage expected to be wrought by the impending 2015 release of a book by Peter Schweizer titled: “Clinton Cash: The Untold Story of How and Why Foreign Governments and Businesses Helped Make Bill and Hillary Rich.”

In an email dated April 19, 2015, Clinton Foundation senior vice president of programs Maura Pally writes to White House communications director Jennifer Palmieri, under the subject heading, “FOR REVIEW: Statement for NYT story on Clinton Cash”:

“Agree. I like it, especially the ‘twisting previously known facts into absurd conspiracy theories’. I suspect we might be able to get repeat use of out of that one.”

In the lead-in to this startlingly telling detail are details concerning the upcoming New York Times articles concerning the book, as explained by Clinton press secretary Brian Mook:

“As you are all aware, Jo Becker from the NYT’s investigative unit is one of several reporters at work on stories based on material provided by the publisher of the upcoming Clinton Cash book. Jo’s story is scheduled to run in as soon as one week.

“Separately, this afternoon, Amy Chozick from the NYT called us to indicate she had obtained a copy of the book on her own and intends to file a separate story tomorrow. Her story will not unpack all of the book’s claims — she will leave that to Jo. Instead, she will do a more process-y story about the book’s existence, the fact that the publisher has approached multiple media outlets in advance of the book’s publication to spoon-feed them some of the book’s research, and also remark on the fact that Rand Paul continues to drop hints about the book’s contents such that it appears they may be some coordination with individual Republican campaigns.

“We think this story, though it was not originated by us, could end up being somewhat helpful in casting the book’s author as having a conservative agenda …”

In another document (of many) evidencing the same, dated February 2, 2015, Clinton strategist Joel Benenson exchanges concerns with Mook and a group of Clinton and White House insiders about his concern for upcoming “NYT & WSJ | Econ Stories.”

This particular thread is batted back and forth for nearly a week before the apparent publication of those articles, but not before some nitpicking by the campaign and White House staff.
