    WikiLeaks: John Podesta Emails (74)
    3153

    WikiLeaks uploaded on Wednesday the 12th batch of emails of US Democratic party presidential candidate Hillary Clinton’s campaign chairman John Podesta on its website.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) – The latest release brings the number of emails leaked so far by the whistleblowing site to almost 19,000.

    WikiLeaks released the first batch of emails on October 8.

    Earlier it was reported that US Secretary of State John Kerry asked Ecuador to stop WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange from releasing documents related to US Presidential Nominee Hillary Clinton. On Monday, WikiLeaks indicated that Julian Assange's internet link had been "intentionally severed by a state party" as part of an apparent effort to prevent the transparency organization from releasing emails related to the campaign of Democratic presidential hopeful Hillary Clinton.

    Later, Ecuador confirmed suspicions that it "temporarily restricted" the internet access of Assange.

    Assange has been residing in the Ecuadorian Embassy in London since 2012 to not be extradited to Sweden, where he was accused of rape after WikiLeaks begun to release documents in its possession.
