    WikiLeaks: John Podesta Emails (74)

    WikiLeaks released the 31st batch of leaked emails from the account of US Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton’s campaign chairman John Podesta.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) — The new email disclosure bumped up the total number of the leaked emails to 50,408, which is even more than 50,000 that WikiLeaks promised to publish before the US presidential election on November 8.

    The whistleblower website published the first batch of emails on October 8.

    The previously published emails gave insight into the early stages of mapping out Clinton's presidential campaign strategy. The letters revealed, for example, that Clinton reversed her position on free trade agreements from enthusiastic support to strong opposition, as trade deals appeared to be a hot-button issue for many voters and one of the main talking points for Clinton's Democratic Party rival Senator Bernie Sanders and Republican candidate Donald Trump.

    On October 20, the whistleblowing website also published a bunch of letters sent to or by Barack Obama before he became US president.
