    The whisleblowing website Wikileaks has published almost 20,000 emails from the US Democratic National Committee (DNC) ahead of the party’s national convention next week, the organization said in a Twitter post on Friday.

    WASHINGTON (Sputnik) — The database contains 19,252 emails and 8,034 attachments from key figures in the DNC as part of the organization’s series on presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton, the organization said.

    "RELEASE: 19,252 emails from the US Democratic National Committee," Wikileaks tweeted.

    Wikileaks has also published 8,034 US DNC attachment, includinc thousands of images, 891 documents and 175 spreadsheets.

    ​Earlier this month, the whistleblowing website WikiLeaks has published over 1,200 Iraq War-related emails from Hillary Clinton’s private server.

    The website obtained the messages from the US State Department following a corresponding Freedom of Information Act request. The publication of the emails has come a day before Sir John Chilcot’s 12-volume report into the United Kingdom’s part in the Iraq War was released.

    Clinton has come under significant criticism for using a private server and email address for official business during her tenure as secretary of state from 2009 until 2013.

    In March, WikiLeaks launched an archive of more than 30,000 emails Clinton sent and received while she was secretary of state.
