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.
Can people STOP referring to Wikileaks as a news organization. They are a foreign agent, supported by Russia, publishing stolen data.— Michael McFaul (@McFaul) October 24, 2016
WikiLeaks responded to the former US diplomats accusations by issuing its own message.
We disagree. You publish stolen data & in American election, have made it clear that you are overtly partisan. https://t.co/NfzHHELjDK— Michael McFaul (@McFaul) October 24, 2016
McFaul argued, however, that releases of "stolen" data made it clear WikiLeaks is "overtly partisan."
