Clinton Aide: WikiLeaks Release in Coming Days ‘Probably Fake’
The Clinton campaign is warning the American people that Wikileaks may be falsifying information regarding the election.
The Hill reports:
Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton’s communications director, Jennifer Palmieri, said Sunday that any “whopper” dropped by WikiLeaks in the final days before the election is “probably fake.”
“Friends, please remember that if you see a whopper of a Wikileaks in next two days – it’s probably a fake,” Palmieri wrote on Twitter.
Over the course of the past month, WikiLeaks has periodically released batches of emails allegedly obtained during a hack of Clinton campaign chairman John Podesta’s account. The emails purportedly reveal exchanges among campaign staff, in addition to interactions with the press.
The campaign has not said whether or not the emails are genuine.
