Twitter users voiced outrage after the Biden White House announced Friday that former Clinton campaign manager and Obama counselor John Podesta will assume the role of senior advisor to the President for clean energy innovation and implementation. 

"We are fortunate that John Podesta will lead our continued innovation and implementation. His deep roots in climate and clean energy policy and experience at senior levels of government mean we can truly hit the ground running to take advantage of the massive clean energy opportunities in front of us," President Biden said in a statement tacked onto the press release.

The move elicited shockwaves from conservative voices on Twitter, reinvigorating critiques of Podesta's leaked emails from a 2016 WikiLeaks release and pointing to alleged corruption within the Biden administration.
