The revelations keep coming from WikiLeaks’ batch of hacked emails from the account of Hillary Clinton’s campaign boss. Here are 11 things we’ve learned. Here are just a few revelations from the Podesta emails.
All are very concerning, but the “Ring China” is very telling. My instinct tells me Hillary Clinton has enemies and they are having their revenge. And it is most certainly not Donald Trump or Russia. Perhaps, China?

Mrs Clinton said in emails that she had told Chinese officials if they were not able or willing to control North Korea’s aggression then the US would be forced to put up missile defences in the region.
“So China, come on. You either control them or we’re going to have to defend against them,” she purportedly told a Goldman Sachs conference in June 2013.
She also remarked that the US would send additional warships to the region to counter the North Korean missile threat.
As secretary of state, Mrs Clinton visited China seven times and helped develop Washington’s “pivot” to Asia, which has long been viewed with suspicion by Beijing.
A 2011 exchange between between Mrs Clinton’s now-communication’s director Jennifer Palmieri and liberal think tank fellow John Halpin mocked a magazine article describing media mogul Rupert Murdoch raising his children as Catholics.
Mr Halpin, a self-described Catholic, writes that many of the “most powerful elements of the conservative movement are Catholics… they must be attracted to the systematic thought and [severely] backwards gender relations”, adding that “it’s an amazing bastardisation of the faith”.
Ms Palmieri responds that those people must think it is “the most socially acceptable politically conservative religion”. Ms Palmieri recently said she doesn’t recognise the emails, adding that “I’m a Catholic”.
