    WikiLeaks: John Podesta Emails (74)

    The Egyptian foreign minister sought contact with the campaign of US presidential candidate Hillary Clinton as early as in September 2014, according to an email released by Wikileaks on Wednesday.

    WASHINGTON (Sputnik) —Earlier in the day, Wikileaks released the 12th batch of emails of US Democratic party presidential candidate Hillary Clinton’s campaign chairman John Podesta on its website.

    "The Egyptian FM wants to be in touch with someone who is doing Hilary's foreign policy," the September 9, 2014 email to Clinton aide John Podesta said.

    "Any chance you could suggest or point me in the direction of who he might want to talk to? As I read you were the new chairman this week thought you might have an idea."

    Moreover, the subject line of the email, "crazy question of the week," suggested that Podesta was less than enthusiastic with the prospect of contact between the Clinton campaign and Egypt’s government.
