    After releasing nearly 20,000 emails from the US Democratic National Committee, WikiLeaks has dumped audio recordings from the organization.

    The new release includes 29 voice messages pulled from the emails of high-ranking DNC officials, totaling 14 minutes.

    One file (#16014) involves a Clinton supporter calling to demand that Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders be prevented from winning the primary.

    The emails released over the weekend showed that officials within the ostensibly neutral organization had a clear bias toward former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. Sanders supporters were outraged, and the embarrassment forced DNC Chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz to resign ahead of this week's convention. NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden has pointed out, however, that her replacement has been shown to be equally guilty of anti-Sanders bias.

    WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange had promised the release of more documents.

    The latest release comes on the same night that US President Barack Obama is scheduled to speak at the convention.

    Sputnik is in the process of delving into this new release, and will update our readers as revelations emerge.

      jas, Sputnik tossed TOADS on TRUMP steps. Some talk vehemently against TRUMP at Russia media.
      RT, Sputnik, go find. Many believe TRUMP will be a NERO of Rome.

      Worst for TROLLS. RT is allowing U.S reporters to have sections!!!
      There are two that are always in politics of U.S. Actually, LARRY KING is at RT.
      And everyone that followed LARRY, I am one, knows he not BIASED. He just let you talk. He doesn't form the usual opinions, which are the base for propaganda.

      Hey continue the posts..

      Its not a problem they were leaked or there was improper security for the emails, the problem is that it happened in the first instance.

      There's really nothing in those voicemails that's incriminating Clinton or Democratic Party. Just some rant by a loser who wasted their last $300 on the party, thinking it buys them a right to decide for everyone! Very democratic of them!

      Russian media are well advised to keep a critical stance towards Trump.
      If they wrote in a supportive way it would be most welcome to the propaganda.

      mzungu in Africa, yeah, but not in these audio files. If anything, these files can work to her advantage. I don't understand why they were released.
