On Friday, another WikiLeaks release from the account of Hillary Clinton’s campaign chairman, John Podesta, revealed that Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel used a private email server to communicate with the Clinton campaign.
The Daily Caller reported:
Emanuel, a former House lawmaker who served early on in the Obama administration, sent an email to Podesta asking him to consider Brian DeSplinter for a position with Clinton’s campaign. Emnauel sent the email from the address “firstname.lastname@example.org.”
The email address is still active, according to Mailtester.com, and is run through Google’s Gmail service. This is unlike Clinton who used a private email server based out of her Chappaqua, New York home.
DeSplinter served as Emanuel’s speechwriter, according to the April 2015 email chain released by WikiLeaks.
“Brian has been speech-writing for me for the past four years and has done a great job. He’s a highly skilled speech writer and I know he’d be a very valuable addition to the team,” Emanuel wrote to Podesta. “Let me know if you have any questions and I hope that you can find a good position for him.”
“Dan will reach out,” Podesta responded.
“Thank you. Would mean [a lot],” Emanuel wrote back.
Emanuel has been suspected of using his personal email account to conduct official government business for quite some time, which is now bolstered by this email chain.
