    WikiLeaks: John Podesta Emails (74)

    US Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton’s campaign manager Robby Mook called Mayor of New York City Bill de Blasio "a terrorist" over his tweet expressing support for Clinton's rival in the Democratic Party presidential nomination Bernie Sanders, according to the emails released by WikiLeaks on Wednesday.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) — The information was revealed in a batch of emails of Clinton's campaign chairman John Podesta published by the whistleblowing website.

    ​An email with de Blasio's tweet saying "I’ve always liked what i heard from Bernie Sanders [on income inequality]" was sent out by Battleground state communications person Ian Sams on June 10, 2015 to other Clinton's campaign members, including Podesta. Mook replied to the email sending a message, "Wow. What a terrorist."

    De Blasio endorsed Clinton in late October 2015.

    WikiLeaks published the first batch of Podesta's emails on October 8.
