Within the 22nd round of the John Podesta email dumped by WikiLeaks, one email shows Clinton campaign strategist Joel Benson and Clinton campaign chairman John Podesta discussing ‘making an example out of’ suspected campaign allies that leak information about the Clinton presidential operation.
The February 2015 email begins with Joel Benson expressing his concern over loose lips closely tied to Clinton that had talked to the press.
While citing an article in the Washington Post that covered how Hillary Clinton had recruited consumer marketing specialists onto her team of trusted political advisers and cited sources close to the would-be presidential candidate at the time, Benson says that anyone whose name that is mentioned in the news shortly after meeting with Hillary should be disconnected from the campaign.
“But this is by far the most damaging story and most damaging type of story we can have,” Benson said in the email. “The press will love writing these. I did when I was a reporter.”
“I think we need a paradigm shift in how this world operates we have to convince HRC and probably WJC that her meeting with 200 people doesn’t help her. Hiring corporate wizards has never been a successful strategy in campaigns. And anyone whose name is in the paper 48 hours after they meet with her needs to be cut off completely from her campaign,” the Clinton campaign strategist wrote to Podesta.
Clinton campaign chairman John Podesta responds by agreeing with Benson’s point and said that “we need a strategy on this that goes beyond internal discipline.”
“This story could have been written without any of these big mouths blabbing,” Podesta says of the Washington Post piece.

Benson responds to Podesta by suggesting a new alignment of the Clinton campaign culture and “a paradigm shift in the old Clinton M.O.”
“I think we have to make examples now of people who have violated the trust of HRC and the rest of the team. People going forward need to know there are stiff consequences for leaking, self-promotion, unauthorized talking with the press. No one – literally no one talked to the press in either Obama campaign without clearing it with campaign brass,” Benson says.
The rest of the discussion reads:
When connecting the Clinton campaign’s desire to ‘make an example out of’ someone who spills information to the public and the suspicious death of DNC staffer Seth Rich, who is suspected of being WikiLeaks sources in the DNC leaks that exposed a democratic conspiracy to hand Clinton the nomination, one might wonder: was Seth Rich made an example of?
Of course, ‘make an example of’ means to apply consequences in order to create a chilling effect to prevent future unwanted results.
Rich worked for the DNC as a voter database employee and had landed a job with the Hillary Clinton campaign just days before being murdered.
The 27-year old DNC staffer was shot in the back multiple times during the early morning hours of July 10th, just blocks away from his home in the Bloomingdale neighborhood of Washington DC. Police called the incident a robbery gone wrong but considering no personal belongings, such as Rich’s wallet, credit cards and cellphone, were not taken, suspicion that the killing may have been politically motivated has risen.
Rich’s murder also sparked speculation that the young DNC staffer could have been one of the latest deaths in a long string of mysterious deaths surrounding Bill and Hillary Clinton spanning more than two decades.
A month after the killing, Wikileaks offered a $20,000 reward for information leading to a conviction in the murder.
On the same day of the reward offer, Julian Assange seemingly suggested to Dutch television program Nieuwsuur that Seth Rich was the source for the Wikileaks DNC email leak.
Some believe that because of Seth Rich’s position inside the data hub of the DNC, the staffer would have been able to gain access to the sensitive emails that WikiLeaks would release shortly after his death.
Could Rich have been the democratic parties ‘example’ to send a chilling effect to all future staffers who may be considering shedding light on the corruption within the party?
As Project Veritas has recently revealed, the Clinton Campaign seems willing to go to extreme lengths to protect their operation and destroy others, even going as far as paying mentally ill individuals to create disturbances at rival party member’s political rallies.
Seth Rich’s murder is still unsolved.
