WASHINGTON (AP) — A hacked email shows Hillary Clinton’s aides lamenting last year that she was not more forthcoming about her use of a private email server.

The March 2015 exchange between Clinton campaign chairman John Podesta and political operative Neera Tanden was among more than 1,300 stolen emails released Tuesday by the WikiLeaks organization.

The day after The New York Times first reported that the former secretary of state had used a private email address, Podesta wrote that Clinton lawyer David Kendall and chief-of-staff Cheryl Mills had not been forthcoming on the facts.

Tanden described the problem as “a Cheryl special” and said Clinton’s team was crazy not to have gone public about the issue months earlier. She then suggested the answer was that “They wanted to get away with it.”
