WikiLeaks Founder: DNC email leaks are just the beginning

July 27, 2016

After an email leak that saw nearly 20,000 emails from Democratic National Convention officials go public last week, WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange warns that this is just the beginning.

Talking with CNN, Assange claims to have “a lot more material” concerning the US presidential elections, all of which may soon make its way to WikiLeaks. “This is having so much political impact in the United States,” he told CNN last night before refusing to confirm or deny that Russia was behind the leak.

In Leaked Recordings, DNC Shown Controlling Donor Access

July 27, 2016

The release of a trove of embarrassing hacked internal emails and private voice mail recordings reveal not only the unseemly dealmaking involved in recruiting high-dollar donations for political campaigns but also the role fundraising officials play in approving and denying access to President Barack Obama and other top officials. At least two former U.S. ambassadors called the Democratic National Committee to speak about personal meetings with the president, according to audio recordings of the calls included in the leaks. One is heard on a recording from May for now outgoing DNC Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz seeking to confirm plans to attend a “small dinner” with Obama. Another had a staffer call DNC fundraising officials for tickets to a St. Patrick’s Day event with the president. “We’ve received an invitation to the vice president’s breakfast but not the White House reception,” the staffer said in a February recording. Later the staffer called back to confirm that the invitation was received.

“It was conversation we were having amongst our team, and again, I’m sorry people have read them, and I’m embarrassed it’s out there,” Kaplan said.

Among the more than 19,000 emails that cybersecurity experts suspect were stolen by Russian state-sponsored hackers and published by WikiLeaks are email exchanges discussing a range of donor data and transactions. There are emails that describe a donor angling for seats next to Obama at a roundtable discussion and one about assigning seats for donors at a White House state dinner. In one, a major contributor from Maryland who had cancer was bumped from a seat next to the president because another, more prolific giver was attending the same event. “A lot of people unfortunately get sick,” wrote finance director Jordan Kaplan, who oversees DNC fundraising and was the writer of hundreds of the leaked emails. He told ABC News this week he was “embarrassed” to see the internal communication exposed to the world.

Julian Assange Timed DNC Email Release for Democratic Convention

July 27, 2016

WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange foreshadowed the release of the hacked Democratic National Committee emails more than a month before the archive of emails was published ahead of the Democratic National Convention. Assange’s comments in a June 12 interview with ITV made it clear that he intended to harm Hillary Clinton’s chance of winning the presidency, and timed the release of the emails to coincide with the start of the convention, an interview first highlighted by the New York Times. During the interview, Assange told British TV host Robert Preston that WikiLeaks had obtained “emails related to Hillary Clinton which are pending publication,” which he said were “great.”

Wikileaks posts hacked DNC voicemails

July 27, 2016

Philadelphia (CNN) Wikileaks released a series of voicemails Wednesday from the Democratic National Committee hack showing donors plying top-level officials for favors, and one donor expressing outrage that Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders had won a say in the drafting of the party’s platform. In one of the 29 voicemails released, a woman who donated $300 to Clinton called the party finance director Andrew Wright and said she was angry the party was acquiescing to Sanders by allowing liberal activist and prominent Sanders surrogate Cornel West to have one of 15 seats on the party’s platform-writing panel.

“I’m furious about what you are doing for Bernie Sanders, he’s getting way too much influence. I’m on a fixed income, I spent over $300, donated to Hillary, what I see is the DNC bending over backwards for Bernie and Bernie is the worst person in the world to even be running in the Democratic Party, because he’s not a Democrat,” said the unidentified woman in a voicemail that was sent to Wright’s DNC email account.
In another voicemail, Bill Eacho, a longtime Democratic donor and former U.S. ambassador, inquired about the details of a “small dinner with President Obama.”

DNC Walkout: Disgusted Sanders’ Supporters Exit the ‘Hillary Party’

July 27, 2016

Philadelphia was the scene of a Democratic uprising, a DNC walkout peacefully accomplished, but nevertheless, an ingrown portent perhaps of a bad moon rising over the Party one protestor/Sanders’ delegate called the “Hillary party.” An estimated 1,800 disgusted Bernie Sanders’ supporters and delegates walked out of the Democratic National Convention’s “Hillary Party” on Tuesday in Philadelphia, and that occurred, according to various media reports, soon after the non-neutral DNC’s favorite candidate, Hillary Clinton, “won” the roll call.

As writer Julie Washington put it in her Plain Dealer story of the drama which unfolded on Tuesday, while the second night of the Democratic Convention was scheduled to be about “unifying behind Hillary Clinton as the official nominee,” the Sanders’ delegates and supporters had absorbed too much already, and apparently there was no more room to squish in any more bogus unity and Party malarkey. Media pounced on the walkout story, likely because it was a narrative-thing organically sprouting and so unlike the infamous “Bernie narrative” created by Party officials.

Assange Says WikiLeaks Might Release More Documents Relating to 2016 Race

July 27, 2016

WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange refuses to say whether the Russians are behind the Democratic National Committee email hack, though signs point in the direction of a meddling Moscow that might prefer a Trump presidency. The Kremlin has denied the allegations, but whichever agents are behind the attack sound as if they have more catnip for the GOP candidate and many more headaches for Clinton.

Assange told CNN in an interview that he had “a lot more material” about the United States election campaign, in addition to the 20,000 DNC emails posted on WikiLeaks that show the Democratic National Committee strongly favored Hillary Clinton as the nominee over Bernie Sanders. He added that the Clinton campaign’s rush to put the blame on Russia raised “serious questions … about the natural instincts of Clinton that when confronted with a serious domestic political scandal she tries to blame the Russians, blame the Chinese, et cetera,” Assange said. He added that instinct could cause “problems” if she were to take office.
