A leaked email from Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clintonâ€™s campaign Chairman John Podesta referenced a 2015 BuzzFeed article in which Sen. Mark Kirk predicted nuclear war in the Middle East in the wake of the Iran nuclear deal.
Podesta’s email, which was released Friday by WikiLeaks along with a cache of documents from the Clinton campaign chair, was in response to a message from John Anzalone of Anzalone Liszt Grove Research that bore the subject line, “you call it.” In his email, Anzalone included a link to the BuzzFeed article and a quote from Kirk.
â€œThis agreement condemns the next generation to cleaning up a nuclear war in the Persian Gulf,â€ Kirk told BuzzFeed at the time. â€œThis is the greatest appeasement since Chamberlain gave Czechoslovakia to Hitler.â€
â€œYup,â€ Podesta said in response to the email.
Quite an admission.
