‘Wolf Blitzer is interviewing Trump on Tues (sic) ahead of his foreign policy address on Wed,’ Dillon wrote in the email that was entitled ‘CNN questions for Trump.’
Numerous questions were submitted by a group of DNC staffers and officials for 68-year-old Blitzer to ask the billionaire.
However, in a follow-up email, she informed the group of staffers that the Trump interview ended up being cancelled.
‘CNN said the interview was cancelled as of now but will keep the questions for the next one Good to have for others as well,’ Dillon wrote in the email.
DNC deputy communications director Christina Freundlich responded to Dillion’s email with ‘Boo’, seemingly showing that she was disappointed.
Blitzer, who has been working at CNN since 1990, did end up interviewing the real estate mogul on May 4.
That interview took place right after both Cruz and Ohio Gov. John Kasich dropped out of the Republican presidential race as candidates.
A CNN spokeswoman told the Daily Mail Online the emails are ‘completely unremarkable’.
It’s only ‘unremarkable’ if you consistently make the same request of both sides. CNN is making that claim. However, when you have over 60 ‘journalists’ attending private dinners with Hillary Clinton, and you have Hillary being fed questions in advance for the CNN debate. Never mind the constant anti-Trump rhetoric that has come from CNN since Trump announced his candidacy. Let’s also not forget that after Trump won Indiana, Hillary went on CNN and told the media to start treating Trump more harshly. Wolf Blitzer was the first to do that the next day.
