Activist publishes 11,000 Wikileaks Twitter direct messages

An activist has published 11,000 direct messages on Twitter between the Wikileaks account and a group of its supporters. The direct messages were published by Emma Best on her own website. Her Twitter account states that she is a journalist on the East Coast. Best has been critical of Wikileaks and has advocated for government transparency. Some of the direct messages were previously published, but this is the first time all of the direct messages have been posted.

The messages show that Wikileaks wanted the GOP to defeat Hillary Clinton during the 2016 presidential elections. "We believe it would be much better for the GOP to win," the Wikileaks account states to a supporter named "Emmy B" in one of the messages from 2015.

Why would they do that?

    Reigning anything would require taking this presidency seriously. But that would require accepting that Hillary lost! May be learn why?

    That would be anathema to the plethora of far-left people who embedded themselves into the system during Obama. They would be recognized as the root cause. They won't let it happen.

    Instead of all that, HIllary didn't lose - RUSSIA did it! We just need to keep making fun of Trump and all its supporters! Double down on the identity politics strategy! They don't want to reign in anything, they have wanted to tear the system down even before all this drama started.

    I think the news of economic betterment we hear today is because of Obama's policies, not Trumps. I also think that Trump has screwed international relations with all the countries all over the world. But Obama did fail in at least one thing - reigning in the far-leftists.

    they have wanted to tear the system down even before all this drama started.

    That is kinda how I see the parties.

    The republicans are a bunch of incompetent halfwits, trying to build something. They've got no idea what they are doing, but they try, anyway.

    The dems are busy trying to destroy what the republicans are doing. They may or may not be halfwits, but they are certainly destructive.

    Maybe that helps to explain my contempt for both parties, but the greater contempt for the D's.
