    WikiLeaks uploaded on Monday the 34rd batch of emails from the hacked account of US Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton’s campaign chairman, John Podesta.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) — The new email disclosure pushed the total number of the leaked emails to over 56,500.

    "New emails reveal Donna Brazile leaked two more debate questions to Hillary Clinton," WikiLeaks announced in a Twitter message on Monday.

    Brazile shared the questions with Clinton's campaign managers, including Communications Director Jennifer Palmieri and Campaign Chair John Podesta, in an email on March 12. The questions touched upon Clinton's stance regarding trade unions and ways to fix income inequality.

    At the time, Brazile was vice chairman of the Democratic National Committee (DNC). She subsequently became the party’s acting chairman after another batch of WikiLeaks emails showed senior DNC officials conspired to prevent Sanders from defeating Clinton as the party’s presidential nominee.

    Other WikiLeaks emails indicate that Brazile leaked a question on the death penalty to Clinton staff prior to an election debate with Republican candidate Donald Trump in early October.

    The whistleblower website published the first batch of emails on October 8.
