Mayor Rahm Emanuel has used personal email accounts to communicate with top government and political figures, including through his own custom email domain that's similar to the one Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton used on a private email server as secretary of state.
Emanuel registered his personal email domain, rahmemail.com, on May 16, 2011 — the same day he was sworn into office as Chicago's mayor, records show.
That personal account surfaced among thousands of hacked emails from Clinton campaign chairman John Podesta posted by WikiLeaks late last month. A subsequent search for the mayor's email domain in 30,000 emails released by the State Department earlier this year found that Emanuel used the same account to communicate with Clinton when she was secretary of state.
