WikiLeaks: Team Hillary Feared Clinton-Cosby Comparisons

By  | 

Leaked email shows staff fretting scandal questions the Democratic candidate might have to field.

Political operative Ron Klain in January sent an “urgent” email to Hillary Clinton’s campaign staff warning of possible questions she might face, including how her husband’s sexual indiscretions might compare to disgraced comedian Bill Cosby.

Klain’s insights became public Thursday thanks to the latest dump by WikiLeaks of campaign Chairman John Podesta’s hacked emails.

Klain, who served as chief of staff to Vice Presidents Al Gore and Joe Biden, wrote that the campaign needed to set aside time to discuss the political questions, which now seem to be really owning the coverage.

Klain had several under the heading “WJC Issues.”

One was particularly harsh: “How is what Bill Clinton did different from what Bill Cosby did?”

Cosby’s career and reputation, of course, went up in flames after a steady stream of women came forward to accuse the one-time “America’s Favorite Dad” of drugging them and then sexually assaulting them. A trail of allegations of sexual impropriety — from consensual affairs to forced sex — also has followed Bill Clinton.

Non-Bill questions that Klain warned the candidate should be ready for included why she was slipping in the polls, her email server scandal and whether voters could trust her.

Surprisingly, GOP presidential candidate Donald Trump has refrained from comparing Clinton to his ex- pal Bill Cosby, something DNC insiders say is a welcome sigh of relief.
