Fox News host Tucker Carlson suggested that an email that was hacked by WikiLeaks appears to show collusion between the Department of Justice and Hillary Clinton's staff concerning the former secretary of state's emails. Several email drops by WikiLeaks have revealed threads of messages between Clinton's campaign director John Podesta, communications director Jennifer Palmieri, and other staff that show the extent of cooperation between the Clinton campaign, the media, and the highest levels of government.
In a May 19, 2015, email Clinton staffer Brian Fallon advised of upcoming civil action by Vice News reporter Jason Leopold that caused the State Department to release tens of thousands of Clinton's emails. Fallon, a former Justice Department spokesman, wrote "DOJ folks inform me there is a status hearing in this case this morning, so we could have a window into the judge's thinking about this proposed production schedule as quickly as today."
Carlson interviewed Sheriff David Clarke of Milwaukee, Wisconsin -- an outspoken Trump supporter who has identified himself as a Democrat -- and asked for his reaction. When Carlson said that citizens do not want to believe that the justice system is corrupt, Clarke answered, "It is corrupt. It extends from the White House as well." Saying that it started years before under former Attorney General Eric Holder, who "became the only attorney general in US history to ever be found in contempt of Congress."
The corruption is so pervasive, said Clarke -- extending from the courts through the FBI, Congress and the White House, that he believes that the "American people are going to finally have to rise up with torch and pitchfork, to use a metaphor" and "take this country back." Clarke agreed that the entire American system is at risk, and that Americans must understand this in order for reform to occur.
