Hillary Clinton’s campaign chairman, John Podesta, wrote in an email after Syed Farook was identified as one of the San Bernardino that it would have better if he had a traditional American name.
Better if a guy named Sayeed Farouk [sic] was reporting that a guy named Christopher Hayes was the shooter,” Podesta said in a December 2, 2015 email to Clinton campaign spokeswoman Karen Finney.
The exchange in question was revealed in newly released emails by Wikileaks.
This was in regards to MSNBC host Christopher Hayes, who had identified Syed Farook as the terrorist in a Twitter post.
