Clinton Aides Were Surprised by Private Email Server, Hacked Emails Show

Two of Hillary Clinton’s top campaign aides were surprised by the candidate’s use of a private email server during her tenure as secretary of state, hacked emails released by WikiLeaks show.

The exchange between John Podesta, Clinton’s campaign chairman, and Robby Mook, campaign manager, took place within hours of the New York Times article that broke the news of her private email account and questioned whether Clinton broke records rules.

“Did you have any idea of the depth of this story?” Podesta asked in an email to Mook in March 2015.

Mook replied, “Nope. We brought up the existence of emails in research this summer but were told that everything was taken care of.”

Hours after the exchange, the Associated Press broke the news that Clinton’s private email account was run off a private server in the basement of her New York home.

The email exchange between Podesta and Mook indicates that even Clinton’s top aides were unaware of the scale of her email practices.

On the same evening of the Podesta-Mook exchange, longtime Clinton ally Neera Tanden sent an email to Podesta expressing her frustration.

“Why didn’t they get this stuff out like 18 months ago?” wrote Tanden. “I guess I know the answer,” she added. “ They wanted to get away with it.”
