WASHINGTON (AP) - The latest batch of hacked emails from Hillary Clinton's campaign highlights her staff's shock and anger after news broke that she used a private email server as secretary of state.

The emails were among those released Thursday by Wikileaks. The group has been releasing thousands of stolen emails from Clinton's campaign chairman, John Podesta.

In one email, Neera Tanden, now a member of Clinton's transition team, questioned whether the person who told Clinton she could use private email has "been drawn and quartered."

In another, Podesta asks campaign manager Robby Mook if he had "any idea of the depth of this story." Mook replied: "Nope." He said that email issue had been raised before, but they "were told that everything was taken care of."
