A secret email address for President Barack Obama has apparently been unearthed thanks to WikiLeaks‘ ongoing Podesta emails dump. WikiLeaks tweeted about the revelation on Thursday, though the first email containing the [email protected] address dates back to Oct. 13.

Just four correspondences included the email address: one containing the contact information of a university chancellor and another figure, an unanswered email about diversity, an email about economic staffing decisions, and an email about the 2008 G20 conference.
