Washington (CNN) An email released by WikiLeaks on Wednesday appears to show a senior Justice Department official sending information about the State Department's review of Hillary Clinton's emails to her presidential campaign -- a move that comes as the Justice Department is under increased scrutiny for its handling of the email investigation.
Assistant Attorney General for Legislative Affairs Peter Kadzik, who essentially serves as the Justice Department's lobbyist to Congress, sent the email in question to Clinton campaign chairman John Podesta from a private Gmail account on May 19 last year with the subject line, "Heads up." "There is a (House Judiciary Committee) oversight hearing today where the head of our Civil Division will testify," he wrote. "Likely to get questions on State Department emails." "Another filing in the (Freedom of Information Act) case went in last night or will go in this am that indicates it will be awhile (2016) before the State Department posts the emails," he added.
CNN cannot independently verify the authenticity of any of the emails, and the Clinton campaign has so far declined to verify individual emails.
