WikiLeaks Releases New Clinton Campaign Emails

(NEWSER) – WikiLeaks has released a second batch of emails allegedly from Hillary Clinton’s campaign chief John Podesta. Unlike the first group of leaked emails—which included excerpts from Hillary Clinton’s sought-after Wall Street speeches— no showstopping info has yet surfaced from this batch of some 2,000 emails (though one of them does feature a long-time Bill Clinton aide calling Chelsea Clinton a “spoiled brat” who lacked focus in 2011). The emails were mostly sent during 2015, when the Clinton campaign was gearing up and struggling to find ways to compete with primary challenger Bernie Sanders, CNN reports. One of the emails is a 71-page opposition research file on Sander titled “Sanders Hits,” Fox News reports.

While media outlets continue to comb the newly-released documents for interesting scoops, the Clinton campaign reiterated its implication that WikiLeaks is deeply tied to the Russian government. The Russians, the campaign argues, are desperately trying to get Donald Trump elected. Clinton spokesperson Glen Caplin told Fox, “The timing shows you that even Putin knows Trump had a bad weekend and a bad debate.” WikiLeaks claims to be in possession of more than 50,000 of Podesta’s emails, so observers can more than likely expect to see more of these releases in the weeks leading up to the election… see more
