From this article... Politico -John Podesta, a seasoned hand it says...
"His heritage, he once told an interviewer, also explains his hot temper and accounts for the occasional appearance of Skippy, his sarcastic and ill-humored alter ego."
So if you search wikileaks you get some good mentions of "Skippy"... one e-mail from the GiFiles might be unrelated but there are ton of off-color jokes about all kinds of conspiracy theory stuff...black magic, crucifixions, porn studio...
Then in the other Wikileaks you can find all these quotes from article that might still be online... haven't looked. But it is all about his dark side... reminiscent of the MK stuff with the dissociative disorders. I won't link them but you can find them if ya just search wikileaks for "Skippy"
Maybe this can be used to connect dot elsewhere if you have run across this name in a different context.
"A thin, stern-looking man in photographs, Mr. Podesta was given the moniker
Skippy the Evil Twin by the staff when he was in a bad mood, according to
his brother, Tony Podesta" - "Good story, but Tony needs to stop talking to the press."
"Podesta was known to politicos as
“a man of rare humor” and “a straight shooter,” but “with a low threshold
for nonsense,” which, if anyone on his staff did something stupid, provoked
a “mean, surly presence” that colleagues nicknamed “Skippy” -- to be
avoided at all costs."
"With Skippy in the White House, it’s not hard to imagine what Jewell’s 50
research projects will “discover.”
That’s orchestration worthy of a Beethoven symphony, but the fingerprints
look like Skippy’s.
It’s all performance art, like the Wizard of Oz or stage magic, dazzling by
the misdirection of attention: Listen to our wails of outrage over here
while we wreck America’s industrial strength over there."
"Anyone who has worked for Podesta in the past decade knows Skippy, who first appeared during Podesta's eventful years as chief of staff in the Clinton White House . As scandal rocked the end of that presidency, staffers knew they had better come prepared to meetings. Otherwise, nurturing mentor John would be replaced by Skippy -- Podesta's quick-tempered, edgy and sarcastic alter ego.
"You haven't seen him in this meeting, have you?" the transition co-chairman for Barack Obama says with a laugh, noting that many a reporter has met Skippy."
"This was, after all, the man whom Clinton staffers used to joke had an evil twin named Skippy to explain his flashes of imperious anger, slamming doors, slamming phones and berating staffers. He even kept a jar of Skippy peanut butter on his desk."
