Eric Garner’s daughter BLASTS Hillary after Wikileaks emails reveal…

Despite Hillary Clinton’s attempts to pander to those with views about police racism in line with the Black Lives Matter crowd, most are seeing right through her.

We’ve learned from a leaked transcript of a speech of hers before a group of Brazilian bankers that she believes it’s important for politicians to have both a public and private stance on the issues, and that’s hardly all we learned from the ongoing Wikileaks dump.

We also learned that Hillary’s campaign tried to figure out how to exploit the death of Eric Garner for political gain. Garner was killed by police after he was put in a choke-hold back in July of 2014. Officers were attempting to arrest Garner for selling untaxed cigarettes. Back in March, Hillary Clinton and her team published an op-ed on gun violence in the New York Daily News. Meanwhile, her team faced a question: should they include a reference to Eric Garner?

“I know we have Erica Garner issues, but we don’t want to mention Eric at all? I can see her coming after us for leaving him out of the piece,” Clinton spokesman Nick Merrill wrote in an email from March. Erica Garner is Eric’s daughter. Another Clinton adviser, Karen Finney, responded by noting that it wouldn’t make sense to include Garner, as he was killed by police, not gun violence.

As you’d imagine, Garner’s family isn’t happy that the Clinton camp was conspiring to exploit their father’s death for political gain. As Fox News reported: The Hillary Clinton campaign came under fire from Erica Garner on Thursday, the daughter of Eric Garner who was killed by a police officer in New York City, after the latest batch of emails released by WikiLeaks revealed how the Democratic presidential nominee talked about her father’s death.

In a series of tweets, Garner expressed anger at the information that poured out from the email release.

“I’m troubled by the revelation that you and this campaign actually discussed ‘using’ Eric Garner … Why would you want to ‘use my dad?” she said. “These people will co opt anything to push their agenda. Police violence is not the same as gun violence.

“I’m very interested to know exactly what @CoreyCiorciari meant when he said ‘I know we have an Erica Garner problem’ in the #PodestaEmails19,” she added.

Garner also tweeted out links to hacked emails from Clinton campaign chairman John Podesta that show staffers trying to figure out how to word an editorial on gun violence that would later run in the New York Daily News.

She’s still firing off a number of criticisms of Hillary on Twitter.

What other issues is Hillary pandering on, and what other tragedies is she exploiting? Any that she believes will get her elected.
