    WikiLeaks has dumped yet another batch of tens of thousands of emails from the account of Hillary Clinton's beleaguered campaign chair, John Podesta. Yet, incredibly, Podesta appears to still be in the running to become Clinton's chief of staff, if she wins the US presidential election.

    The role is one of the most influential government positions, responsible for the day to day running of the White House, as well as for managing the president's all important relationship with Congress.

    67-year-old John Podesta is said to not be keen on reprising the gruelling role he already played for Bill Clinton two decades ago.

    If Clinton is able to change his mind, her new appointee will come with an unbelievable amount of political baggage.

    Read on to see ten of the most controversial revelations from the #PodestaEmails… so far.
