Hillary Clinton seems to have a history of technological scandals. Recently, it has been divulged that she did some digital snooping on her own campaign staff.
Clinton must have had a breakdown, because she had one of her staff go onto the campaign server and download all the emails sent and received by her top staffers.
This kind of distrust is definitely uncalled for when all those people working for her showed nothing but loyalty to her cause.
She was not even able to treat the people who were devoted to her well, it is no wonder than she did not win the election. Clinton was also not capable of taking any of the blame on herself, always blaming those closest to her.
After reading the emails, Clinton called meetings to evaluate what was going wrong, with the staff not knowing that she had read the emails. The staffers quickly realized she knew a little too much.
She wanted to see ‘who was talking to who’ as well as ‘who was leaking to who.‘ Clinton does not seem to handle it all that well when it is her information that is being leaked.
From NY Post:
Clinton wanted an honest assessment of what had gone wrong in her failed presidential bid against Barack Obama. To this end, she had a trusted aide access the campaign’s server and download the emails sent and received by top staffers.
“She believed her campaign had failed her — not the other way around — and she wanted ‘to see who was talking to who, who was leaking to who,’ said a source familiar with the operation,” Allen and Parnes reveal in the book. “Her political director, Guy Cecil, had talked with members of the media from his campaign account. Her chief strategist, Mark Penn, was a tyrant. And far too many of her minions had fought for turf and status rather than votes.”
Rattled by what the emails revealed, Clinton began calling meetings to evaluate what had gone wrong. The staffers had no idea she’d read their emails.
“I was struck by how good of a sense she had before I walked in there of the problems that were going on,” one aide is quoted as saying.
The email review would be just one part of a months-long postmortem project conducted that summer, and it would have lasting results: Neither Penn nor Cecil would be invited back for the 2016 “no-drama-mantra” Clinton campaign.
