Lobbyist Tony Podesta on Friday downplayed the latest WikiLeaks release that showed his brother John in a conversation about poll-testing personal attacks against then-Sen. Barack Obama regarding his father's Muslim heritage.
John Podesta is now Hillary Clinton's campaign chairman. The poll question about Obama, as written in the 2008 emails, included:
" - Obama (owe-BAHM-uh)'s father was a Muslim and Obama grew up among Muslims in the world's most populous Islamic country."
But Tony Podesta told The Hill the question was never actually used.
