Hillary For America Statement On U.S. Government Formally Naming Russia Responsible For Election-Related Hacks

 

John Podesta, Chair of Hillary of America, released the following statement Friday in response to the U.S. government formally naming the Russian government as responsible for recent hacks intended to interfere with the U.S. presidential election:

“The world now knows, beyond the shadow of any doubt, that the hack of the Democratic National Committee was carried out by the Russian government in a clear attempt to interfere with the integrity of our elections. The only remaining question is why Donald Trump continues to make apologies for the Russians. Trump’s initial reaction to the hack in July was to invite further intrusions by the Russians. Even after he was reportedly briefed on the very findings that were just announced publicly by U.S. government officials, he stood on a debate stage one week ago and played dumb about Russia’s role in this hack. He has repeatedly praised Vladimir Putin, outlined a list of pro-Putin policies, and has done hundreds of millions of dollars of business with Russian interests. Even his own running mate has criticized Putin yet Trump continues to refuse. It should concern every American that Russia is willing to engage in such hostile acts in order to help Donald Trump become President of the United States. But even worse, Trump’s own actions suggests he welcomes the help. If he wants to reassure American voters, he must not only acknowledge and condemn Russia’s role in this outrageous intrusion against U.S. interests, but he must finally disclose the full extent of his ties to Russia and divest any Russian-linked assets.”

PRESS RELEASE

October 7, 2016

Clarity Around Obvious Leadership

 

FRESNO—It is unfortunate that the media coverage of this presidential election has focused on dueling negatives. Almost a decade of inaction in Congress has pushed down public approval of our government to abysmal levels, and no experienced politician has been able to avoid being tarred by that brush.

The “alternative” choice is Donald Trump, a human avatar of the kind of profit-hungry and merciless big business that destroyed the world economy back in 2008. Frustrated voters might listen to the media and think that both choices are equally bad. However, if you look past the headlines, there is one strong, steady candidate who can do the job (Hillary Clinton) and one who is an inexperienced, unbalanced swindler who threatens all the principles our country holds dear (Trump).

Regardless of your personal opinions of Clinton, it cannot be denied that she has been the target of a constant stream of partisan political attacks for almost three decades. Ever since she became the chief advocate of the attempted Democratic healthcare reform plan in 1993, she has been accused of everything under the sun and hauled in front of countless hearings to smile at her detractors and answer their questions. Despite the endless accusations and name calling, she stoically addresses each and every concern.

The repeated Benghazi and State Department e-mail investigations have been an attempt to turn Clinton’s incredible strength in understanding our military and international security into a perceived weakness. However, she has withstood these attacks with confidence and expertise, whereas Trump has repeatedly broken down over jabs as small as quoting his insults about a beauty pageant winner.

“Temperament matters. Experience matters. Knowledge matters. Diplomacy matters. The U.S. President has the most critical and influential leadership role on the planet,” says Michael D. Evans, chair of the Fresno County Democratic Party. “We cannot put our children and grandchildren at risk by entrusting our future to a cocky and unbalanced amateur.”

The Fresno County Democratic Party is united behind Hillary Clinton for President. The official Coordinated Campaign headquarters is at 1035 U Street in downtown Fresno. To volunteer or for more information, contact 559-495-0606 or fresnocountydemocrats@yahoo.com.

Statement from Hillary Clinton on Hurricane Matthew

 

As the people of Florida and the Southeast and others prepare for and deal with the aftermath of Hurricane Matthew, Hillary Clinton released the following statement:

“My thoughts and prayers are with everyone in the path of Hurricane Matthew, and my heart is broken for the victims and their families in Haiti, Cuba, the Caribbean, and Florida.

“This is a serious storm, and it has already caused serious damage.  If you get an evacuation order, please follow it immediately.  Bring any important documents, medicines, and your pets with you.  Listen carefully to instructions from local and national officials.  And if you’re not sure what to do, please visit ready.gov for tips on staying safe.

“To all our local campaign staff, volunteers, and supporters: Please take care of yourselves and your neighbors – nothing is more important than that.  To our extraordinary first responders and everyone working to prepare for and respond to the storm: We’re so grateful for your courage and sacrifice, especially in times like these.

“And to the people of Florida and the Southeast, and everyone in the eye of the storm: Stay safe, and know that America is with you.  In times of disaster, we pull together.  We’ll have your back every step of the way – today, and in the weeks and months to come.”
