WikiLeaks Posts Leaked DNC Emails, Including Donor Personal Information

By The Verge, July 22, 2016 

The week before Hillary Clinton is expected to become the Democratic presidential candidate, WikiLeaks has published over 19,000 emails it says come from seven top Democratic National Committee figures. Among them are hundreds of messages that appear to hold personal information about donors, all part of what WikiLeaks calls an ongoing series of "Hillary Leaks."

WikiLeaks announced the new database in a tweet, with the hashtags #Hillary2016 and #feelthebern. It includes 19,252 emails with 8,034 attachments, the bulk of the emails apparently from DNC communications director Luis Miranda. The messages run from January of 2015 to May of 2016. While they cover a range of topics, many are confirmation emails covering donations from party members, and in addition to full names, addresses, and phone numbers, some include passport and social security numbers. Gizmodo notes that there are also credit card payment details, including card numbers.
