    WikiLeaks: John Podesta Emails (74)

    US Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton campaign's chair John Podesta was wary of discussing confidential information with her using a private email server, emails released by WikiLeaks revealed.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) — In August 2014, Clinton who already resigned as US Secretary of State sent an email to Podesta who was still working in the Obama administration asking if he knew who was behind the attack on Islamists in Libyan Tripoli.

    "Yes and interesting but not for this channel," Podesta replied.

    It emerged last year during an FBI investigation that Clinton used a private computer server to send and receive thousands of emails involving official Department of State business, while she was US secretary of state from 2009 to 2013.

    In July 2016, FBI Director James Comey announced that although Clinton’s conduct in the matter had been reckless, it did not warrant criminal prosecution. But last week, Comey said he had re-opened the email server probe as the FBI discovered additional emails sent from Clinton’s private email server.

    WikiLeaks has recently released over 44,000 leaked emails from the account of Hillary Clinton’s campaign chairman, John Podesta. The website promised to disclose a total of 50,000 emails before the US election day on November 8.
