Earlier this week it was announced that a hacker breached the servers of the Democratic Party and obtained the DNC's opposition research on Donald Trump. The DNC confirmed as much.
Now, a single person claiming to be the hacker has released the supposed Donald Trump information alongside some other very revealing internal documents. When pressed by reporters to confirm or deny the authenticity of the new documents, the DNC only issued this vague statement doing neither. If th...e documents were fake, it would seem that the DNC would openly deny as much.
The hacker claims to have given over thousands of additional pages to WikiLeaks.
Three particular documents are disturbing.
First, the hacker released financial records from donors to the DNC. Earlier this week the DNC vehemently denied that any such information was accessed or stolen.
Two other documents that are very concerning were internal memos. One, claiming to be written on May 26, 2015, a full year before Hillary was declared the winner of the party’s presidential nomination and months before the first primary was held, speaks of her as if she is already the nominee and how they aim to spend the following year preparing her for such a moment.
The DNC is supposed to be an unbiased arbiter of the campaign and this memo suggests anything but that. Furthermore, the memo gives strategies for they can best position her for general election. One of those strategies says they aim to, "Use specific hits to muddy the water around ethics, transparency, and campaign finance attacks on HRC."
How ugly is that? Muddying the water? What a mess.
Another memo claims that they "will utilize reporters to drive a message" but do so "with no fingerprints" on the process so that the public believes the messages are coming from the reporters and not the campaign.
This is exactly what many of us have suspected was going on for the past year. It was, in part, why I chose to wear my support of Bernie Sanders on my sleeve. Even with that, at no time did the Sanders campaign ever even hint at their desire for me to cover a certain topic or angle. Every single story I wrote, I wrote on my own without any such input from the campaign.
