Leaked email shows that Harvey Weinstein colluded with Clinton campaign manager Robby Mook in an effort to "silence" Erica Garner's #BLM message with "Sandy Hook".

Garner died of heart failure last week, aged 27.




THE INTERCEPT:


HACKED EMAILS SHOW that movie mogul Harvey Weinstein, a longtime ally of Hillary Clinton and a major fundraiser for her 2016 campaign, urged her campaign team to silence rival Bernie Sanders’s message against police shootings of African-Americans. He suggested countering it with “the Sandy Hook issue” — a reference to Sanders’s opposition to lawsuits against gun manufacturers.
The emails were released by the group DCLeaks, which in the past has shared hacked emails from U.S. political and military figures. The U.S. Intelligence Community announced Friday that it is “confident that the Russian Government directed the recent compromises of e-mails” that were made public “on sites like DCLeaks.com and WikiLeaks and by the Guccifer 2.0 online persona.”
The Weinstein emails were among a large number of messages DCLeaks made public on Thursday, from the gmail account of Capricia Marshall, a close Clinton confidant who worked for her in the White House and the State Department, and worked on her 2008 campaign.
In an April 10  email sent to Clinton campaign manager Robby Mook, just days before the New York primary, Weinstein invited Mook to meet up. He pointed to a Sanders ad featuring Erica Garner —  the daughter of Eric Garner, who was killed by New York City police officers —  as well as growing support for Sanders among Latino activist leaders. “I’m probably telling you what you know already, but that needs to be silenced, probably with the Sandy Hook issue,” he wrote:

"Get Paid to Write at Home!


Mook wrote back replying to Weinstein’s offer to meet up and discuss strategy: “Are you kidding?  Let’s do it!  I’m here all week.  This is all hands on deck–it’s must win! Would tomorrow or Tuesday work?”
