Clinton supporter and lobbyist Joel Johnson wrote to her campaign chairman John Podesta in an email revealed by WikiLeaks:
Bernie needs to be ground to a pulp. We can't start believing our own primary bullshit. This is no time to run the general. Crush him as hard as you can. Other than that, hope all is well and congrats on Nevada!Podesta replied:
I agree with that in principle. Where would you stick the knife in?To which Johnson snapped back:
Obama betrayer (Wh will affirm). Hapless legislator (Senators/members will affirm). False promiser (policy elites will affirm). Can't win (black people will affirm).
