Facebook COO Sheryl Sandberg told Hillary Clinton’s campaign chairman John Podesta in June 2015 that she wants Clinton to “win badly” and that she is there to “help” as best she can, a leaked email reveals.
“Thank you – means a lot to me that you reached out. And I like that you are praying for Dave. I have to believe in heaven now. And I still want HRC to win badly. I am still here to help as I can. She came over and was magical with my kids,” Sandberg sent to Podesta in response to an email of his wishing condolences following the death of her husband.
In another email contained in the WikiLeaks release, this one from August, Sandberg asks Podesta if he’d be willing to meet with Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg.She wrote that Zuckerberg “is particularly interested in meeting people who could help him understand how to move the needle on the specific public policy issues he cares most about. He wants to meet folks who can inform his understanding about effective political operations to advance public policy goals on social oriented objectives (like immigration, education or basic scientific research).”
Sandberg has donated tens of thousands to Democrats. In 2016 alone, the Facebook executive donated $270,800 alone to Democratic candidates and party committee, that includes $2,700 to Clinton.
The Wall Street Journal recently reported Facebook employees pushed Zuckerberg to classify some of Donald Trump’s posts as hate speech and remove them. (RELATED: Facebook’s News Content Staff Was Filled With Liberals)
