After Her 2008 Primary Loss to Obama, Hillary Clinton Spied On Her Own Staff to Find the Traitors and Leakers

No wonder she's paranoid about email security. She's pawed through other people's emails to find dirt.

This was reported in “Shattered: Inside Hillary Clinton’s Doomed Campaign by Jonathan Allen and Amie Parnes, which I guess I have to read.

She wanted to know what went wrong, so...

To this end, she had a trusted aide access the campaign's server and download the emails sent and received by top staffers.

"She believed her campaign had failed her -- not the other way around -- and she wanted 'to see who was talking to who, who was leaking to who,' said a source familiar with the operation," Allen and Parnes reveal in the book...

Rattled by what the emails revealed, Clinton began calling meetings to evaluate what had gone wrong. The staffers had no idea she'd read their emails.

"I was struck by how good of a sense she had before I walked in there of the problems that were going on," one aide is quoted as saying.

Two of Hillary's top staffers were not invited to join the Obama Administration, possibly because Hillary had decided they couldn't be trusted.

Would-be Hillary Clinton Ad Scripter and self-taught Master of All Things Espionage-y Louise Mensch could not be reached for lunatic gibberings.
