Here Is John Podesta in His Own Words Reacting to the WikiLeaks Mess 18.10.2016 Mother Jones
This story was originally published by Grist and is reproduced here as part of the Climate Desk collaboration. Last week couldn't have been an easy one for Clinton campaign chief John Podesta. On the one hand, his candidate continued to increase her polling lead over Republican Donald Trump. But on the other, he had to watch a steady drip of revelations from his hacked campaign emails as they were posted online by WikiLeaks.

"She's put out an extremely robust agenda that goes beyond what President Obama has pledged," he told Grist. (The interview was scheduled before the first of the WikiLeaks releases and not in response to them.) "These are big, bold plans," Podesta said. "It would exceed the goals that the United States took on in the Paris negotiations." For the most part, Podesta's hacked ...
