John Podesta lost his cell phone getting out of a cab, the latest dump of WikiLeaks' "The Podesta Emails" indicates. Podesta, the chairman for Hillary Clinton's campaign, appears to have sent an email to Eryn Sepp on July 19, 2015, in which he asks for help finding his lost phone.

"[I] lost my phone this am. It must have fallen off my belt getting in or out of the cab. I used Diamond and had a 4:45 pick up at Brandywine. Can you call Diamond Cab and see if the cab driver found it. They should be able to figure it out given the pickup. The receipt says #Diamond 444 C502," Podesta appears to have written, according to the allegedly leaked email in WikiLeaks' Podesta files.

Readers have speculated that this incident might have been the way whoever delivered the Podesta files to WikiLeaks was able to access Podesta's emails.

"Milia, I know you are with friends/family, but if you see this before Eryn, can you try to call Diamond Cab. I don't have a phone obviously, and want to try to get to the cabbie as early as possible. Thanks John."

"Lifesaver. Thanks. If you can retrieve, i'll get it at Cap on Tuesday am. Maybe one of their cabbies can bring to 1333 H on Monday and you can do a street handoff," Podesta seemingly wrote to Sepp in an email, featured on WikiLeaks website. "They can charge you the cab fare and tip and I can reimburse you on Tuesday. Thanks!"

Sepp seemingly asked Fisher to check Podesta's Gmail, according to an email in the WikiLeaks files.

"Added to my version of John's contacts but not sure it will update in his gmail. Can you check?"

Another leaked email shows that Podesta had the email address "podesta@georgetown.edu" and that Sepp seemed to have access to that email account. In February 2015, Podesta was locked out of his Georgetown University email account. According to the leaked documents, Podesta asked Sepp to get the issue straightened out.

"Will do," Sepp responded, according to the WikiLeaks document. "That's weird. We definitely followed their instructions."

"Do a lot of undercover Russian agents drive taxis?"

"Though CAP is still having issues with my email and computer, yours is good to go," Sepp allegedly emailed Podesta in February 2015. Then, Sepp informs Podesta of his new username and password.

It's almost unbelievable.
