While the media has been turning Donald Trump’s off-color remarks from a decade ago into a three-ring circus, you may have missed some of the key revelations that came out about Hillary Clinton in the latest WikiLeaks release.

WikiLeaks released more than 2000 emails exchanged between Hillary Clinton and her various campaign staff members.

From these emails we learn many things about the Democratic nominee for president.

For instance, she has big concerns about Syrian refugees. She has acknowledged that the hundreds of thousands of refugees pouring into Jordan likely contain a high number of jihadists.

Despite that concern, she’s advocated taking in 65,000 refugees from war-torn Syrian. That’s a far sight higher than Obama’s goal of welcoming 10,000 from that country.

Another interesting tidbit is Hillary’s praise of big Wall Street banks. Despite criticizing these banks publicly and calling for more regulations on them, in private speeches she credits these bankers with propping up the economy and promises they’ll have substantial influence on economic and financially policies.

My favorite thing from this latest batch of emails is Hillary Clinton’s blatant acknowledgement that she has a public stance and a private stance on the issues. The public stance is for the general public, like you and me. The private stance is for the insiders and influencers. Hillary doesn’t want us common folk to know about her private stance on policies because it would “make us nervous.”
