WikiLeaks Exposé Shows Clinton Kept U.K. Travel Ban On Michael Savage

Popular talk show host kept out of the U.K. by then Sec. of State Clinton

In the latest drop of WikiLeaks emails there seems to be one that includes popular author and nationally syndicated talk show host Michael Savage and Hillary Clinton. The series of emails shows that Clinton, during her tenure as secretary of state and through an email from her private account, declined to fight for Savage’s request to be lifted from a travel ban to the United Kingdom.

“I have long believed that someone in the Clinton camp worked in cahoots with the socialist Labor Party government to destroy my career,” Savage told website WND.com. “These emails show that Mrs. Clinton herself had the power to appeal to the British government to remove my name from their banned list but refused to do so. Why?

“As an American citizen I appealed to Hillary Clinton as secretary of state to defend my First Amendment rights. She refused to do so. Why?”

The emails came from 2009 when Savage was banned from traveling to Britain because his “views might provoke violence,” according to the report.”

Savage’s immediate reaction upon hearing the news from the website WMD was typically wry: “Darn! And I was just planning a trip to England for their superior dental work and cuisine. Then it sank in,” he told WND, “and I said, ‘She said this is the kind of behavior we won’t tolerate? She’s linking me with mass murderers who are in prison for killing Jewish children on buses? For my speech? The country where the Magna Carta was created?’”

The ban on Savage remains and in 2013, the famed Oxford Union in England invited Savage to participate in a debate on whether or not fugitive National Security Agency leaker Edward Snowden should be called a hero. Savage replied: “While I am most honored to have been invited to speak at the Oxford Union, I am unable to enter the great nation of England.”

Below are the two emails in question that were dropped by WikiLeaks. They show that the conversation via email about Savage was written by then Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.
