It is not controversial to say that New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio is far-left.
His policies clearly indicate as much.
Newly released emails show De Blasio trashing Hillary Clinton behind her back in the run up to the 2016 presidential election.

New York City’s prickly progressive Mayor de Blasio dissed Hillary Clinton behind her back while waiting six and a half months to endorse her for president in 2015, the New York Post reported.
His cringe-worthy digs were contained in a cache of emails dumped by City Hall last week under court order in response to a Freedom of Information suit, the Post reported.
“Do you get the feeling she needs to start learning to use short declarative sentences???” de Blasio emailed adviser John Del Cecato on June 19, 2015, about an interview where Clinton spoke about her position on the Trans-Pacific Partnership. “She’s even worse than me.”
More from New York Post:
De Blasio also praised Clinton’s opponent Sen. Bernie Sanders later that day, emailing that the liberal Vermont pol’s praise was “helpful” and “adds momentum.”
But the next day, Clinton came out against TPP, and on Oct. 11, her campaign started coordinating with de Blasio on how to roll out his endorsement.
The mayor finally backed her on Oct. 30, once he returned from a trip to Israel, and after services for slain police officer Randolph Holder and the anniversary of Hurricane Sandy.
Clinton included his endorsement in a long list of other mayors backing her, quoting him fourth on an official release, after mayors from Chicago, Philadelphia and Houston.
De Blasio’s cringe-worthy hesitation to endorse Clinton was part of an apparent attempt to boost his own relevancy in the presidential election.
In an explosive new memoir penned by Ken Starr, the former independent counsel details how he nearly brought charges of “indictment on perjury” against the twice-failed presidential candidate.
From Daily Wire:
In an explosive new memoir, former independent counsel Ken Starr revealed that he considered bringing perjury charges against Hillary Clinton after a 1995 deposition with investigators.
In Starr’s memoir, which was obtained in advance by Fox News, Starr recounts his investigation into the death of White House adviser Vince Foster and other matters related to the Whitewater investigation.
“I was upset over Mrs. Clinton’s performance, and was even considering bringing the matter before the Washington grand jury for possible indictment on perjury,” Starr wrote, according to an excerpt of “Contempt: A Memoir of the Clinton Investigation” reviewed by Fox News.
Why wasn’t Hillary forced to face the music?
Starr said that he ultimately decided not to bring charges against the then-first lady because it would be difficult to prove that she lied when she said “I don’t recall” and “I don’t remember.”
Hillary reportedly viciously bullied Vince Foster before he committed suicide, according to Free Beacon:
Hillary Clinton relentlessly browbeat her clinically depressed former law partner Vince Foster shortly before he committed suicide in 1993, according to notes from a final jailhouse interview with a former close business partner of the Clintons.
Jim McDougal, a long-time member of the Clintons’ Arkansas inner circle and a central figure in the Whitewater scandal, passed away from a heart attack in prison in 1998. But he said in a final interview before his death that Hillary Clinton had a “hard, difficult personality” and was “riding [Vince Foster] every minute” about Whitewater before Foster took his own life.
McDougal also described his ex-friend Bill as a “master con artist” who married Hillary after a “cold-blooded search” to find himself a politically beneficial wife. Bill, according to McDougal, also privately wanted to prevent Hillary from succeeding in her own political career.
McDougal, who was convicted of fraud in 1996 in connection to the controversial real estate partnership with the Clintons, sat for a number of jailhouse interviews with former Boston Globe reporter Curtis Wilkie before his death. Many of his statements were reported in his posthumous 1998 book with Wilkie, Arkansas Mischief: The Birth of a National Scandal.
