Katie Couric guaranteed almost 2.5 million views to Hillary Clinton's team when she requested an interview with the Democratic presidential candidate earlier this year.Couric's message was revealed on Tuesday by Wikileaks, which published another batch of leaked emails from Clinton's campaign manager John Podesta.

Couric wrote in the email that her interviews typically get 1.5 million views through Facebook and an additional 1 million from Yahoo.Couric is Yahoo's Global News Anchor and has been leading its political coverage this year.

Yahoo recently said that Couric's interviews amassed nearly 400 million views in total and her video-streams more than doubled year-over-year in 2015.

Still, it doesn't look like Couric was able to land a sit-down interview with Clinton.Here's the full text of the email Couric sent to Podesta:"Hi John, Well, I know you had a good weekend!

We've been working with the campaign folks to reschedule my interview with Secretary Clinton.

I wanted to write you about some of the metrics that we are getting and let you know through placement on Facebook we can guarantee 1.5 million views in addition to Yahoo engagement which has been close to 1 million for my political interviews.
