    WikiLeaks is not a news organization, but rather a foreign agent supported by Moscow, former US ambassador to Russia Michael McFaul claimed in his Twitter on Monday.

    WASHINGTO (Sputnik) — WikiLeaks has released in 17 batches this month thousands of emails between Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton’s campaign chairman John Podesta and Democratic Party figures, including other members of Clinton’s campaign staff and Clinton herself.

    On October 20, WikiLeaks also published several letters sent to Barack Obama before he became US president.

    WikiLeaks responded to the former US diplomats accusations by issuing its own message.

    McFaul argued, however, that releases of "stolen" data made it clear WikiLeaks is "overtly partisan."
