With Wikileaks releasing what may have been the final 2,073 Podesta emails in part 32 of its ongoing dump of hacked campaign chairman emails, with the dramatic discoveries over the past week largely overshadowed by the FBI “scandal” which has now fully blown over after Director Comey first zigged, announcing in a cryptic statement he was reopening a probe into Clinton’s email server last Friday, only to zag just 9 days later when the FBI reported it had found nothing material in the 650,000 emails found on Anthony Weiner’s laptop, the whistleblower organization appeared to have run out of steam.
However moments ago, Wikileaks announced the release of another huge batch of hacked DNC emails, which it dubbed #DNCLeak2, contained some 8,263 previously unseen, hacked DNC emails – a server penetration which had previously been attributed either to the Guccifer 2.0 hacker, or Vladimir Putin, and which over the summer cost Debbie Wasserman Schultz her job when it was revealed that the DNC was rigging the primary in HIllary’s favor – going public for the first time.
While we expect the FBI to fully parse, scan and finalize it report on this batch within the next 10 or so minutes, and to conclude there is nothing of significance in the pile, we will as usual try to find anything particularly relevant, although if the Podesta emails – which provided an explicit admission by an internal review of the Clinton Foundation that it was breaking the law on at least one occasion, and that Teneo, CGI and the CF were operated as “political organizations”, meant to boost “pay to play” – failed to get an indictment out of the FBI, we truly doubt that anything that is contained in tonight’s 8,000 emails will sway the so-called law enforcement authorities into action.
As usual, readers are warmly invited to submit any material discoveries our way at the usual address.
