Nearly 70 email exchanges between Hillary Clinton and her daughter reveal Chelsea used a fake identity when corresponding with her mother.

The 67 emails released by Wikileaks shows the Democratic nominee discussing various topics with her daughter.

One particular email from 2011 shows Clinton writing to "Diane Reynolds," her daughter's alter-ego. The subject line reads: "WHAT'S NEW TODAY?"

The then secretary of state wrote, "I'm sitting in the Libya mtg, wondering what other shoe will drop." Only a few months later, on September 11, 2012, Islamic militants attacked the American compound in Benghazi, Libya, killing four Americans.

Another email deals with Benghazi. Clinton wrote to her daughter's alias, "Two of our officers were killed in Benghazi by an Al Queda-like group: The Ambassador, whom I handpicked and a young communications officer on temporary duty w a wife and two young children."

Why exactly Chelsea decided to write her mother using a code name remains unclear.
