    World-known billionaire investor George Soros invited John Podesta, Democratic Party's presidential nominee Hillary Clinton’s campaign chair, to spend a weekend at his residence in Southampton in August 2015, emails released by WikiLeaks on Tuesday showed.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) — Earlier in the day, WikiLeaks published the 35th batch of emails from the hacked account of Podesta.

    "Dear Mr. Podesta… Please let me know if you are available to join Mr. and Mrs. Soros one weekend at their residence in Southampton. Weekends that would work well for a visit are August 7th-10th or August 28th-31st," the email sent to Podesta by Jacqueline Carozza, Assistant to George Soros, on July 21, 2015 said.

    This is not the first appearance of Soros in Podesta's emails, since the whistleblower website started publishing them on October 8. Members of Clinton’s campaign were tailoring some of her appearances to the preferences of Soros.

    In October 2014, Robert Mook, Clinton’s campaign strategist, in his email to the two other campaign members, Huma Abedin and Podesta, said that he would ensure such appearances "for political reasons (ie to make Soros happy)" and Abedin responded to Mook that Podesta agreed with him.
