According to the reports, the WikiLeaks published seven emails including an e-mail address indicated to be that of the commander-in-chief: [email protected]
The e-mails are from 2008 before and around the time Obama was about to win the election and become America’s first African-American president. They reveal plans to form a diverse team for the Obama administration and “staffing a transition economic team”.
On the Election Day, dated November 4th, 2008, Co-chair of Obama’s transition team, John Podesta requests Obama not to accept an invitation to a G-20 summit held on November 15, on the chance that outgoing President George W Bush extends an invitation after his win.
When the G-20 gathered in Washington, Obama was absent.
The White House refused to comment. The US intelligence officials believe Russia harmonized the extensive cyber attacks into Democratic Party-related e-mails.
The Obama mails were amongst some 23,000 e-mails stolen from Podesta, who now toils as Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton’s campaign chairman.
The alleged Obama e-mails were from 2008 when the young Illinois senator was about to acquire his historic White House bid and was assembling a team. The e-mails largely address staffing a transition economic team and adding diversity to a future Obama administration.
