‘This is great’: Hillary staffers excited about how a black teen being murdered could help her agenda

Newly released emails from Wikileaks show Hillary Clinton staffers debating how they can best use the death of a black man to further their agenda.

The email began as a request for an essay by Clinton from Marie Claire who was partnering with Harvard University on a study about women and guns but it quickly devolved into brainstorming ideas on how to push the campaign’s anti-gun and racial narratives.

The team began discussing an article published in “The Guardian” where the mother of Jordan Davis, a black teenager murdered by a white man for playing music loud, called the killing a “legal lynching” despite the fact that the murderer, Michael David Dunn, was convicted and sentenced to life in prison.

“You know where I stand on this. It can be racially motivated and gun violence should still very much be part of the discussion,” Clinton policy advisor Corey Ciorciari wrote in the Jan. 2016 email. “Even more so here given that Jordan’s mom is one of the leading gun violence prevention proponents in the country.”

De’Ara Balenger, the director of engagement for “Hillary for America” could hardly contain her excitement.

“This is great,” she wrote. “The only flag here is that Jordan Davis was killed by a white man, so arguably – this crime was racially motivated, which takes this outside the discussion of gun violence. Was there another mother in the Chicago meeting where the shooting was NOT racially motivated? If yes, we should use that story instead of Jordan Davis.
