Assange, who remains in open hiding at the Ecuadorean embassy in London, said the release of nearly 20,000 DNC emails last month was “great fun.” The document dump on Wikileaks, a whistleblower website, showed party officials discussing ways to hurt the Bernie Sanders presidential campaign, including conversations on whether the Vermont senator’s Jewish faith should be publically questioned. The immediate fallout claimed several resignations at the DNC, including chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz, who was absent from the Democratic National Convention.
The New York businessman on Wednesday invited Russia to dig up tens of thousands of “missing” emails from Clinton’s time at the U.S. State Department, prompting Democrats to accuse him of urging foreigners to spy on Americans.
“Either these guys were incredibly sloppy, in which case it’s not clear that they could have gotten as far as they did without being detected, or they wanted us to know they were Russian.”
The release of leaked Democratic National Committee (DNC) emails that appear to show DNC officials discussing how to work against Bernie Sanders has inflamed the progressive icon’s followers, prompting cries of corruption and institutional unfairness.
