Leaked: CNN asked DNC for questions to prepare for interviews with Trump, Cruz, Jeb, and more

A new email release by Wikileaks shows how deep the collusion between mainstream media and the Democrat Party runs.

The emails show a disturbing pattern among reporters actively working with the Democrat National Committee to run interference on Donald Trump by asking Democrat operatives for questions to ask the Republican presidential nominee.

Emails released Sunday showed CNN solicited the DNC to help it with questions to hit Trump and Ted Cruz with interviews they had with the network.


An email titled “Cruz on CNN” from April 28 sent by DNC research director Lauren Dillon to DNC staff read “CNN is looking for questions. Please send some topical/interesting ones.”

A previous email title “Trump Questions for CNN” sent on April 25 showed the same woman asked for questions to ask Trump in an interview he was scheduled to have with Wolf Blitzer.

“Wolf Blitzer is interviewing Trump on Tues (sic) ahead of his foreign policy address on Wed,” she wrote.

The interview was canceled but CNN planned to keep the questions they worked out for future interviews according to the email.


“CNN said the interview was canceled as of now but will keep the questions for the next one Good to have for others as well,” Dillon wrote.

Another email from April 28 showed a writer for Jake Tapper’s CNN show assured the DNC they would stay “Dem focused” in an interview with DNC spokesman Luis Miranda.

“Thanks for facilitating Luis coming on today, and bearing with us through a melee [sic] of GOP nonsense and cancellations and all that. Any particular points he’ll want to make? We’re gonna stay Dem focused…” he wrote to former DNC media booker Pablo Manriquez.

And it isn’t only CNN.


In another email CNBC’s John Harwood wrote an email to the DNC in which he asked “What Should I Ask Jeb” prior to an interview with Jeb Bush in Sept. 2015.

A writer for the Washington Post, Dana Milbank, asked the DNC to do the majority of research for a negative column she wrote on Trump.

In an email titled “research request: top 10 worst Trump quotes?” showed DNC deputy communications director Eric Walker asked for negative Trump quotes for Milbank to use in the article.

The article, which Milbank named “The ten plagues of Trump,” was published on April 22 and included 8, out of 10, quotes given to her by the DNC.
