    WikiLeaks: John Podesta Emails (74)
    21717

    US journalist Brent Budowsky recommended Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton to use alleged good relations between Republican candidate Donald Trump and Russian President Vladimir Putin against Trump during the election campaign, the WikiLeaks whistleblowing website revealed on Saturday.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) – On Saturday, WikiLeaks uploaded the 15th batch of Podesta’s emails on its website. The latest release brings the number of emails leaked so far by the whistleblowing site to over 26,000.

    “Best approach is to slaughter Donald for his bromance with Putin, but not go too far betting on Putin re Syria,” Budowsky wrote on December 12, 2015, to Clinton’s campaign chairman John Podesta.

    WikiLeaks released the first batch of emails on October 8. On October 20, the whistleblowing site also published a bunch of letters sent to or by Barack Obama before he became US president.

    Earlier, Wikileaks said that US presidential candidates Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump have mentioned "Russia" and "Putin" at the debates more often than any other subject.

    According to WikiLeaks statistics published on its Twitter account, "Russia/Putin" was mentioned 178 times in total over the course of the presidential debates this year.
