John Harwood, a journalist for CNBC and The New York Times, asked Clinton campaign chairman John Podesta what he should ask then-Republican presidential candidate Jeb Bush in an interview, according to a new email released by WikiLeaks on Sunday.

The email from September 21, 2015 had the subject line, “what should I ask Jeb…”

In the body of the email, Harwood wrote,  “…in Speakeasy interview tomorrow?”

On Sept. 25, Harwood sat down for a 10 question interview with Bush.


It’s not yet known if Podesta responded to Harwood’s question.
