Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton’s campaign chairman, John Podesta, told colleagues, “We are going to have to dump all those emails," after a news report revealed the former secretary of state used a private email server to conduct government business, according to emails published Tuesday by WikiLeaks.
“Not to sound like [Clinton confidante] Lanny [Davis], but we are going to have to dump all those emails so better to do so sooner than later,” John Podesta allegedly wrote to Clinton aide Cheryl Mills in a March 2015 email.
“Think you just got your new nick name,” Mills replied.

The FBI recently uncovered emails relevant to their investigation into Clinton’s use of the private server as they conducted a probe of allegations that disgraced former Rep. Anthony Weiner (D-N.Y.) exchanged lewd messages with an underage girl.
WikiLeaks has not revealed their source for the emails, but U.S. intelligence officials believe the Russian government may be behind the leak.
The Clinton campaign did not immediately respond to TheBlaze’s request for comment.
