Starbucks CEO Howard Schultz – who confidently predicted last month that Hillary Clinton would clobber Donald Trump – last year complained her campaign was "old style" and "stale," a hacked email released by WikiLeaks shows.

The brutal assessment was contained in a July 6, 2015 email from Schultz to top Clinton aide Cheryl Mills, part of a trove of emails stolen from the gmail account of Clinton campaign chairman John Podesta and released by the hacker activist WikiLeaks.

"From the outside looking in, I see an old style start to the campaign that feels stale with very few signs of the kind of freshness and transparency that the American people (especially millennials) will need to trust and ultimately elect HRC as President," Schultz wrote.

"It's also becoming very apparent and concerning that the media is not on her side. This will get only worse and not bode well for her as time goes on."

"She desperately needs the people on her side," he said. "And, although it’s early, the imprinting process has begun… And, I don't like how it feels."

His bruising critique also complained, "The campaign feels 'yesterday.' It’s too packaged and prescribed. The American people are longing for truth and someone to believe in."

"Reboot the look of it all and the overriding message before its to late [sic]," Schultz urged. "The answer is not in the polls, it’s in her heart and her conscience. When she begins to truly trust herself and find her inner voice, and has the courage and conviction to share it with the world, things will change and change rapidly."

"Encourage her to be herself. And, to embrace her core purpose and reason for being," he added.

Schultz endorsed Clinton in September.

The hacked email was flagged by the Washington Free Beacon.
