WikiLeaks is a non-profit, international, journalistic organization which publishes news leaks, secret information, and classified media from anonymous sources. On Monday, WikiLeaks published over 1,200 emails about Iraq War from Hillary Clinton’s private server during her time as secretary of state.
The website posted a link on twitter and comment “Ahead of the Chilcot report: Complete list of British MPs who voted to invade.” The link was post earlier than the release of the Chilcot report, and WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange has said that his group has gathered enough information and evidence that should lead to an indictment of the presumptive Democratic nominee by the FBI.
The email archive is the latest to target the presumptive Democratic nominee. Near the end of June, the anonymous hacker Guccifer 2.0 released a trove of internal Democratic National Committee files which exposed the behind-the-scenes maneuvers to boost Clinton’s candidacy, underscoring the critique of her being the establishment party favorite.
On Tuesday, FBI Director James Comey said that Hillary Clinton was “extremely careless” in handling classified information while secretary of state and added scores of emails on her personal server contained highly classified information—but he said the FBI won’t recommend criminal charges against the presumptive Democratic presidential nominee.
“After an exhaustive, apolitical investigation, the FBI found that no reasonable prosecutor would bring such a case.” James Comey said. “Although we did not find clear evidence that Secretary Clinton or her colleagues intended to violate laws governing the handling of classified information, there is evidence that they were extremely careless in their handling of very sensitive, highly classified information.”
