Erica Garner furious with Hillary campaign for ‘using’ her dad’s death in emails revealed by WikiLeaks

The Hillary Clinton campaign will stop at nothing — and use anyone — to grab the power of the White House, including the death of “choke-hold victim” Eric Garner.

And his daughter, Erica Garner, is pissed.

A series of emails released Thursday by WikiLeaks revealed that Clinton campaign staffers discussed the case of the late Staten Island victim of alleged police brutality and how it could be used to bolster the former secretary of State’s campaign.

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

She received her share of support on that.

The leaked emails indicated that Clinton planned to publish and op-ed on gun violence, and were wanted to use Garner’s death in it — even though he was not a gunshot victim. Clinton’s traveling press secretary Nick Merrill brought up Garner’s daughter in one email.

“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,” he wrote.

Garner wondered about this one.

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

She also tweeted that “What really pisses me off is that the Clinton camp won’t just admit these emails belong to them… Fu**ing liars.”

Given Clinton’s track record, she got a lot of support on that one.
