Early Tuesday afternoon, interim chair of the DNC, Donna Brazile, issued a statement indicating the Democratic Party was bracing for a new batch of email leaks to be released. About an hour later, Wikileaks delivered, tweeting a link to a 670 MB file, along with instructions for downloading. In her statement, Brazile warned of potential malware risks in accessing the documents and outright blamed Donald Trump and “Russian agents,” despite the fact the hacker has not yet been identified by law enforcement officials.

It’s understandable the DNC would ramp up fear surrounding cyber security and hurl blame at Donald Trump and the Russian government, but they’re going to need something bigger than that to distract from the content of these emails. Included in the documents is a letter that directly addressed how to handle donors who submitted “pay-to-play letters” to ensure their donations were put into the “operating amount.”
Also in the leak was a detailed list of over 100,000 donations dating back to 2008, including some high-profile donors who received international ambassadorships from President Barack Obama in return for their pledges to both the DNC and Obama’s Organizing for Action nonprofit.
