Newly released WikiLeaks documents show that Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel used a private email account to communicate with Hillary Clinton Campaign Chairman John Podesta in order to get one of Emanuel’s employees a job within the Clinton campaign.

The WikiLeaks documents show that Emanuel sent an email from the private email address “mayor_re@rahmemail.com” to Podesta asking him to consider one of his employees for a position in the Clinton campaign. The employee in question was Brian DeSplinter, a speechwriter and media aide in Emanuel’s office.

“Brian has been speech-writing for me for the past four years and has done a great job.
