The Biggest Revelations About Hillary Clinton From WikiLeaks So Far
WikiLeaks has been characterized over this weeks to releases different batches of Hillary Clinton´s campaign chairman John Podesta emails, in which there has been revelations that have been awful surprises both for the American voters and for the Democratic nominee, considering that this information could harm her image. Given this fact, this has been the most notorious revelations so far.
Liberals Think She Doesn't Have Any Chances To Be President
Clinton´s campaign chairman John Podesta received an email from liberal columnist Brent Budowsky, in which he explained that the democratic candidate wouldn't have any chances of becoming president.

The issue about this comment is that Budowsky told it at the time when everyone thought that there weren't any chances for Trump to become a presidential candidate, since it was considered a joke to think that Republicans would end up choosing him as their nominee.
"Right now I am petrified that Hillary is almost totally dependent on Republicans nominating Trump. [S]he has huge endemic political weaknesses that she would be wise to rectify... even a clown like Ted Cruz would be an even money bet to beat and this scares the hell of out me...." Budowsky wrote.
Podesta Wrote That Clinton Hates "Everyday Americans"
One of the worst moments in Clinton´s public appearances was when she told during a democratic debate that she could put half of Donald Trump´s supporters into what she called, "the basket of deplorables," which caused many critics against her, arguing that none presidential candidate should despise everyone who have different political stances.
The most awful thing about this situation is that WikiLeaks later published one of Podesta´s emails, in which he described Hillary in a very horrendous way. "I know she has begun to hate everyday Americans, but I think we should use it once the first time she says I'm running for president because you and everyday Americans need a champion," Podesta wrote.
She Received Debate Questions In Advance
One of the things that many Trump´s supporters has repeatedly claimed is that the media is against him, which makes WikiLeaks actions against Hillary a move that just equilibrates the election. Although many of the media has legitimately exposed its reasons to be against the Republican candidate, taking a clear position supporting a candidate is not precisely an ethical move.
However, the most controversial case were when WikiLeaks revealed that Clinton received questions in advanced at the time when she was competing against Bernie Sanders at the Democratic Primaries. This is something that definitely broke neutrality, and show that impartiality doesn't exist in this elections , as reported by the Observer.
Close Relations With Goldman Sachs
Clinton has always claimed her position against banks, showing a similar attitude as Bernie Sanders in order to catch the leftist voters among Democrats. However, WikiLeaks revealed that far from not having any kind of connections with these finance organizations, she actually got to the point of giving three paid speeches at Goldman Sachs, which is probably one of the most unpopular banks in the U.S., being blamed for the financial crisis some years ago.
Although here comments weren't an endorse to capitalism and bank corruption, this has been one of the most important WikiLeaks revelations, considering how harmful could be for Clinton´s image, who have characterized for not be related with these groups in the elections, in order to not lose voters.
