    The WikiLeaks whistleblowing organization announced Tuesday the authenticity of over 21,000 documents leaked from the accounts of Emmanuel Macron’s campaign camp.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) — On Friday, some nine gigabytes of emails allegedly leaked from accounts of Macron’s En Marche! movement were anonymously dumped. Macron's campaign camp confirmed it had been hacked but claimed fake papers had been mixed up with authentic ones to spread lies ahead of the presidential election.

    ​On Sunday, Macron won French presidency with 66.1 percent of the votes in the run-off. His right-wing rival Marine Le Pen conceded defeat with 33.9 percent of the votes.
