Email shows MSNBC producer gushing over Clinton in segment pitch

Two 'bankers boxes' filled with Hillary Clinton's emails are missing, FBI files reveal. Fox News intelligence correspondent Catherine Herridge reports for 'On the Record'

 

A newly leaked email from the Clinton campaign appears to show an MSNBC producer fawning over Hillary Clinton, calling her an “amazing, intelligent woman” who is “smarter than most men,” in an effort to get an aide to appear on her show.

The April 2015 email, obtained by DC Leaks and reported by The Daily Caller, shows “All in with Chris Hayes” producer Sheara Braun pitching a “Hillary Clinton for Milennials” segment to the Clinton campaign in order to get an aide to appear. Braun presents the segment as one that would present Clinton controversies of the 90s in a positive light – referring to them as “crap and nonsense.”

 "The point of the segment is basically to inform young people about all of the crap and nonsense that Sec. Clinton and President Clinton (but mostly Sec. Clinton) had to face back in the 90s when President Clinton was running for office," Braun says to Clinton campaign spokeswoman Adrienne Elrod, "...everything from cookie-gate to stand-by-your-man-gate to Hillarycare."

The producer concludes the pitch for the show with a breathless expression of admiration for the Democratic nominee.

"The point isn’t to dwell on the past but the point is to talk about this amazing, intelligent woman who probably faced more nonsense back in the day because she is a woman...and she continues to have to face it," Braun says.. 

"She is smarter than most men and more qualified than most men to be president," she says. 

It was not immediately clear if an aide did appear on the segment in question.
