There’s evidence that presidential candidate (((Bernie Sanders))) may have been controlled opposition, and it’s quite compelling.
Late Friday, Wikileaks tweeted:

The statement Sanders made that caught Clinton’s ire was pretty tame in the greater scheme of things. He criticized Clinton for “living large” and being disconnected from working people. If that statement was over the line to Mook, then that indicates how restrained he expected Sanders to be as controlled opposition. But Sanders never touched on the deeper unbridled corruption of the Clinton Foundation, play for play. Sanders dismissed the larger issue of HRC’s email server abuses, saying Americans are just tired of hearing about it.
It also indicates just how weak HRC was as a candidate in that she barely prevailed over her weak-punching, controlled opposition. Sanders:
Theoretically you can be a multi-billionaire and in fact be very concerned about the issues of working people. Theoretically that’s true. When you hustle money like that, you don’t sit in restaurants like this. You sit in restaurants where you spend, I don’t know what they spend, hundreds of dollars for dinner and so forth. That’s the world you are accustomed to. And that’s the worldview that you adopt. I’m not going to condemn Hillary and Bill Clinton because they’ve made a lot of money. That type of wealth has the potential to isolate you from the reality of the world.
