Some emails include the mundane like “Hillary Clinton’s Chipotle Order” to the more serious like “My position on the Iran deal”.
The White House was instructing Secretary of State John Kerry to avoid questions about Clinton’s email arrangements, the Wall Street Journal reported the email leaks as saying.
The AP revealed that while Donald Trump’s campaign chair Paul Manafort worked for Ukraine’s former government, he funneled some $2.2 million in cash to two Washington lobbying firms, including the Clinton-connected Podesta Group.
Between 2012 and 2014, Manafort and his business associate Rick Gates steered at least $1.13 million in lobbying fees to the Podesta Group Inc. and another $1.07 million to Mercury LLC, AP reported on Thursday.
The money came from the European Centre for a Modern Ukraine, a nonprofit “governed by a board that initially included parliament members” from the ruling Party of Regions, according to AP.
