Mark Cuban says hacked Clinton campaign emails show a 'positive organization'
Billionaire Mark Cuban says the findings that have emerged from the hacked emails of Hillary Clinton's campaign chair John Podesta are examples of a "positive organization."
Talking with AOL on Wednesday, Cuban said the main reason for his lack of concern over the slew of emails released by WikiLeaks recently is due large in part because "none are from her."
"Nothing that I saw doesn't exemplify a positive organization," said Cuban.
Despite Donald Trump praising the leaks as evidence that Hillary Clinton is "corrupt," Cuban says they merely reveal the workings of a large campaign with multiple perspectives, and for Cuban "that's the only way to become smarter."
WikiLeaks has so far released 13 batches of hacked emails, which according to U.S. intelligence agencies, were obtained by the Russian government in an attempt to interfere with the 2016 presidential election. Multiple controversies regarding the Clinton campaign have come to light through these emails including transcripts of Clinton's paid speeches to top bankers where she is quoted as stating the importance of having "both a public and a private" position on policies.
Another batch of emails sparked controversy over the Clinton campaign categorizing potential vice presidential picks by gender and race.
Cuban expressed the importance of having differing points of view within a campaign, saying, "You want disagreements, you don't want people who only agree with you," said Cuban. "You want people that will put up ideas and share them. You don't expect them to become public."
Cuban admitted there are people working for him that he doesn't always agree with. "Some I disagree with vehemently, but I want those positions in." Cuban said.
The billionaire added that a diversity of voices is a "big difference" between Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton.
