    what is your interpretation of the following email from podesta re: a 2015 cnbc interview in which sanders stated “When you hustle money like that, you don’t sit in restaurants like this” and “That type of wealth has the potential to isolate you from the reality of the world.”

    podesta: This isn’t in keeping w the agreement. Since we clearly have some
    leverage, would be good to flag this for him. I could send a signal via
    Welch–or did you establish a direct line w him?

      Very interesting indeed. Agreement?
