    In yet another insulting and damning email released by Wikileaks, as part of their series called “Hillary Leaks,” where they’re releasing hacked emails from approximately seven high-ranking DNC officials, the Democrats continue with their callous portrayal of Hispanics. In the email below, Democrats refer to Hispanics like mindless target consumers rather than a group of people with diverse needs and a depth of knowledge on issues that affect their lives.

    AP ^ | July 23, 2016 | Stephen Braun Associated Press
    WASHINGTON (AP) -- A cache of more than 19,000 emails from Democratic party officials, leaked in advance of Hillary Clinton's nomination at the party's convention next week in Philadelphia, details the acrimonious split between the Democratic National Committee and Clinton's former rival, Sen. Bernie Sanders. Several emails posted by Wikileaks on its document disclosure website show DNC officials scoffing at Sanders and his supporters and in one instance, questioning his commitment to his Jewish religion. Some emails also show DNC and White House officials mulling whether to invite guests with controversial backgrounds to Democratic party events. Although Wikileaks' posting of...
  • VIDEO: Protester shouting ‘DNC leak!’ ejected from Hillary rally

    He could be seen attempting to hold up a sign with a hashtag on it but was otherwise unreadable. As those around him grabbed it out of his hands, he repeatedly shouted, “DNC leak!” He continued to yell as he was led away. Clinton continued talking. The man’s protest was in reference in some 20,000 DNC emails being released by Wikileaks. One such email appeared to show party staffers conspiring to create a narrative in the media that was critical of Clinton rival Bernie Sanders. “Wondering if there’s a good Bernie narrative for a story, which is that Bernie never...

By Friday evening, it vanished completely from the site's "trending" bar for at least 20 minutes. It returned as "#DNCLeak" after users erupted, though it was too late to quell their rage.

    WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange says his next leak will virtually guarantee an indictment of Hillary Clinton. In a recent interview with ITV, Assange said the whistleblowing website will soon be leaking documents that will provide “enough evidence” for the Department of Justice to indict the presumptive Democratic nominee. WikiLeaks has already published 30,322 emails from Clinton’s private email server, spanning from June 30, 2010 to August 12, 2014. While Assange didn’t specify what exactly was in the emails, he did tell ITV that WikiLeaks had “accumulated a lot of material about Hillary Clinton, which could proceed to an indictment.”

Many of the emails include directives to smear both Bernie Sanders and Donald Trump with absolute lies. The idea was to create scandals as a way to hand Hillary the nomination. As soon as Wikileaks posted the emails, Twitter began trending with #DNCLeaks. It was the top trending hashtag. But suddenly it has disappeared.

In its recent leak of 20,000 DNC emails from January 2015 to May 2016, DNC staff discuss how to deal with Bernie Sanders’ popularity as a challenge to Clinton’s candidacy. Instead of treating Sanders as a viable candidate for the Democratic ticket, the DNC worked against him and his campaign to ensure Clinton received the nomination.

The release could cloud the upcoming Democratic party convention, which kicks off next week in Philadelphia. It is unclear how Wikileaks obtained the records, but the release comes weeks after a hacker (or hackers) going by the name Guccifer 2.0 began releasing records obtained through the DNC’s computer systems. The hacker claims to be Romanian, but many suspect that the records were taken by a team of Russian hackers. Guccifer 2.0 has said that they obtained DNC emails. Other documents released by the...

    Bernie Sanders supporters lost a debate over international trade that divided Democrats during a meeting in Orlando on Saturday to draft their party platform. Sanders supporters had hoped the party's official position statement for 2016 would include language explicitly rejecting the Trans-Pacific Partnership, while backers of Hillary Clinton, the presumptive nominee, argued for softer language. Both presidential candidates oppose the controversial trade agreement, but it was championed by President Barack Obama, leaving the party in an awkward position.

"He wants to get good trade agreements," Ryan told The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel in an interview Wednesday. "So do I." Ryan's remarks come shortly after Trump sharply criticized trade agreements in a speech at a western Pennsylvania Rust Belt town earlier this week, blaming globalization for having "wiped out totally, totally our middle class." Trump further called the landmark Trans Pacific Partnership (TPP), a trade deal that involves a "death blow for American...

    WikiLeaks has issued an encrypted file for download as a kind of “torrent insurance” ahead of its public release of potentially damning documents. As previously discussed on Inquisitr, Guccifer 2.0’s hack of the DNC servers have already revealed possible collusion between the Hillary Clinton campaign, the mainstream media, and Democratic Party leadership. While the DNC has neither confirmed nor denied the authenticity of these preliminary releases, WikiLeaks’s torrent insurance prior to the actual document dump could indicate the presence of damaging evidence on Clinton, and possibly even the Obama administration. Famed government whistleblower Edward Snowden tweeted out a message regarding...

    A lone hacker, referring to himself as Guccifer 2.0, is claiming responsibility for hacking into the Democratic National Committee (DNC) servers.  While the DNC confirmed Tuesday its servers had indeed been breached, they and cyber security firm CrowdStrike indicated the Russian government was the likely culprit. The declaration by CrowdStrike, who is used to maintain the security of government servers, seems to have spurred the hacker known only as Guccifer 2.0 to reveal via the website Guccifer2.wordpress.com, that he/she was the source of the hack and not the Russians. In a blog post dated June 15th, Guccifer 2.0 states: I’m very...

The DNC further said that no financial, donor or personal information appears to have been accessed or taken, suggesting that the breach was traditional espionage, not the work of criminal hackers. It appears that was not entirely true, because barely 24 hours later, the alleged "Russian" hackers has emerged under the Guccifer2 handle, and instead of a group of...

A new WikiLeaks release of Clinton emails is likely to fan a controversy that has bedevilled her campaign and provide further ammunition for Donald Trump, her Republican presidential rival, who has used the issue to attack her.

The presumptive Republican presidential nominee wants to restrict immigration while bringing back manufacturing. He compulsively uses tech products like Twitter but is not in awe of the people who built them. He made his fortune the old-fashioned way, by going into the family business, in the old-fashioned industry of real estate. He’s not the valley’s kind of entrepreneur. Worst of all, Mr. Trump is revealing Silicon Valley’s vulnerability. In recent years, technology companies have extended their...
