Wikileaks Posts Vague Warning Shot at Kaine, Brazile
Wikileaks called out Kaine and Brazile this Friday, posturing that a “surprise” is “in store” for them.
The Hill reports:
Wikileaks issued a cryptic online warning to Democratic National Committee Interim Chairwoman Donna Brazile and Democratic vice presidential nominee Tim Kaine on Thursday. “We have a surprise in store for @TimKaine and @DonnaBrazile,” the Wikileaks account tweeted.
Brazile has had more than one run-in with WikiLeaks since the group began released stolen emails.
She took the interim chairwoman post after the site posted emails from the DNC breach, ultimately leading to the resignation of then-Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman-Schultz (D-Fla.).
And Brazile’s name appeared in the e-mails stolen from Hillary Clinton campaign manager John Podesta, in a message that appears to show she had been given advance notice of a primary debate question that she shared with the campaign.
Kaine has thus far been relatively unscathed by the site’s leaks. Both Kaine and Brazile have claimed that at least some of the emails on Wikileaks may have been doctored.
This week, the Ecuadorian embassy cut Wikileaks founder Julian Assange’s internet access to prevent what it perceived as interference with the U.S. elections by the group.
