    WikiLeaks: John Podesta Emails (74)

    A new batch of emails from the account of US Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton’s campaign chairman John Podesta released by WikiLeaks on Sunday revealed that money of the Clinton Foundation was allegedly used to finance wedding of Clinton’s daughter Chelsea.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) – Chelsea Clinton, 36, married US investment banker Marc Mezvinsky in 2010.

    "The investigation into her getting paid for campaigning, using foundation resources for her wedding and life for a decade, taxes on money from her parents," Clinton adviser and former Clinton Foundation fundraiser Doug Band wrote to Podesta in 2012.

    He also asked Podesta to speak with Clinton.

    "I hope that you will speak to her and end this once we go down this road," Band wrote.

    The 32nd batch of emails from Podesta's account released on Sunday pushed the total number of the leaked emails to 52,481, 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.
