A new round of WikiLeaks documents released Tuesday reveal a March 2015 exchange between Hillary Clinton’s campaign chairman and confidant Cheryl Mills on the need to “dump” emails.
Twitter’s trending news feed was dominated by #PodestaEmails25 after a new batch of stolen documents belonging to John Podesta were posted online. A March 2, 2015, discussion between Mrs. Clinton’s top advisers shows Mr. Podesta expressing a desire to “dump all those emails.”
“On another matter and not to sound like Lanny, but we are going to have to dump all those emails so better to do so sooner than later,” Mr. Podesta said after hearing about a new hire.
Mr. Podesta’s reference to “Lanny” was a reference to Lanny Davis, a well-known lawyer who served as former President Bill Clinton’s special counsel.
“Think you just got your new nick name,” Mrs. Mills replied to Mr. Podesta the following day.
