    Guccifer 2.0, the hacker(s) behind the breach of the Democratic National Committee, released another batch of files on Tuesday, this time claiming that they are from the Clinton Foundation servers.

    They also wished WikiLeaks a happy tenth anniversary.

    In a statement accompanying the huge 820 megabyte file data dump, the elusive hacker entity wrote, “many of you have been waiting for this, some even asked me to do it.”

    “So, this is the moment. I hacked the Clinton Foundation server and downloaded hundreds of thousands of docs and donors’ databases.”

    Guccifer also stated that, “Hillary Clinton and her staff don’t even bother about the information security. It was just a matter of time to gain access to the Clinton Foundation server.”

    The first screenshot accompanying the download is a list of folders the hacker claims come from the server, and it immediately sparked interest online as one of the folders was actually labeled “pay to play.”

    Guccifer claims that, included in the dump, are lists of donors, financial corporation donations, and “other docs.”

    “It looks like big banks and corporations agreed to donate to the Democrats a certain percentage of the allocated TARP funds,” Guccifer noted.

    The hacker(s) further stated that they could not post all of the databases that they obtained, as the files are too large. They wrote that they are currently looking for a better way to release them — urging readers to keep following.

    The Clinton Foundation issued a statement to Politico following the release, denying that the files are from the organization.

    "Once again, we still have no evidence Clinton Foundation systems were breached and have not been notified by law enforcement of an issue," a foundation official said. "None of these folders or files shown are from the Clinton Foundation."

    “P.S. I’m pleased to congratulate WikiLeaks on their 10th anniversary!!!” the post concluded. “Julian, you are really cool! Stay safe and sound!”
