Wikileaks: Democrats helped Trump win primaries

Leaked Memo Shows DNC 'Elevating' Trump TWO MONTHS Before He Announced | MRCTV - Nick Kangadi:

October 10, 2016 - "WikiLeaks ...release[d] an alleged memo sent by Clinton campaign chairman John Podesta in April 2015 to the Democratic National Committee (DNC) as part of a larger release of Podesta's emails ... this past Friday (with more out on Monday) while no one in the media was – or is – paying attention.

"[T]he email in question was dated over two months prior to Donald Trump announcing his candidacy, yet he was mentioned as a candidate to 'elevate'....  This alleged email was also just a few weeks before former president Bill Clinton had a private phone conversation with Trump.... Clinton’s personal office in New York confirmed that the call occurred in late May, but an aide to Clinton said the 2016 race was never specifically discussed and that it was only a casual chat.

"In the email, the candidates were broken down into categories. The 'Pied Piper' category was for those candidates who were not considered 'establishment' Republicans [Ben Carson, Ted Cruz, and Trump]. The rest of the candidates listed represented those that were more established politicians and suited for a general election.... [O]ne sentence in particular that might raise some eyebrows as to the DNC’s influence over the GOP election process. 'We need to be elevating the Pied Piper candidates so that they are leaders of the pack and tell the press to [take] them seriously.'"

WikiLeaks Reveals DNC Elevated Trump to Help Clinton | Observer - Michael Sainato:

October 10, 2016 - "It was in the best interest of Clinton, and therefore the Democratic Party, that Trump was the Republican presidential nominee. Polls indicated Sen. Rubio, Gov. Kasich, or almost any other establishment Republican would likely beat Clinton in a general election. Even Cruz.... Clinton and Democrats expected the FBI investigation into her private email server would serve as a major obstacle to Clinton’s candidacy, and the public’s familiarity with her scandals and flip-flopping political record put her at a disadvantage against a newcomer. Donald Trump solved these problems.

"All the Clinton campaign had to do was push the mainstream media in the general direction of covering and attacking Trump as though he was the star of the Republican presidential primaries. As the presumed Democratic nominee, whomever she decided to dignify by responding to — whether the comments were directed at her or not — would be presumed to be the spokesperson, or nominee, of the Republican Party.

"'Clinton, Trump trade insults as rhetoric heats up between front-runners,' read the headline from a CNN article in September 2015. 'Hillary Clinton Seizes On Donald Trump’s Remarks to Galvanize Women,' read a New York Times headline from December. Several media outlets criticized the mainstream media obsession with Trump, but despite a few concerns that the media was propping up his legitimacy as a candidate with their constant news coverage, it continued unabatedly.

"The mainstream media was more than willing to do the Clinton campaign and DNC’s work for them by creating a narrative that the 2016 presidential elections was about Hillary Clinton vs. Donald Trump.... The media gave Clinton what she wanted; impunity for the corruption, lies, and deceitfulness rampant in her political record, and an opponent who divided his own political party while driving fear and anxiety into her own to the point where enough Democrats and voters would gladly vote for her just to avoid Trump becoming president."
