    Donna Brazile, a CNN contributor and at the time DNC Vice Chair (now Chair), was caught through the Wikileaks Podesta email dump feeding to Hillary's campaign a question to be used at a CNN presidential town hall. We covered the story previously, Brazile Gave Hillary Campaign Town Hall Question in Advance:
    The Wikileaks dump of Hillary Clinton campaign chair John Podesta emails shows that then-CNN contributor, now DNC interim chair, Donna Brazile gave Hillary a question ahead of a CNN town hall. Brazile sent this email to Podesta and a few aides, with the subject “From time to time I get the questions in advance.”

    You may recall that the State Department produced certain Sidney Blumenthal emails with Hillary Clinton that were not included in the emails Hillary turned over to the State Department. The story of more Blumenthal emails beyond what Hillary turned over called into question Hillary's repeated claim that everything work-related was turned over to the State Department, and only purely personal emails (like regarding Yoga) were deleted. In searching the Wikileaks database of the Podesta email hack, Mary found the email exchange below which shows that the Clinton campaign received a heads up that the State Department was to produce the emails to a House committee, and team Clinton scrambled to prepare a response in advance of the State Department turning over the emails to Congress. There are several aspects of this email that are important, including that the State Department was considering planting a story with a friendly reporter at AP and that the Clinton campaign and the State Department were working together to create messaging for Hillary:

    Clinton campaign Chairman John Podesta has told the media he blames Russia for the hack into his emails, which Wikileaks has been releasing in troves for the last few days. He even said that GOP presidential candidate Donald Trump knew about the hack and the leaks:
    “I’ve been involved in politics for nearly five decades,” Mr. Podesta told reporters aboard the Clinton campaign plane. “This definitely is the first campaign that I’ve been involved with in which I’ve had to tangle with Russian intelligence agencies,” he added, “who seem to be doing everything that they can on behalf of our opponent.”
    The FBI confirmed its agents have started an investigation into the hack.

    In an explosive new email chain released within a new cache by WikiLeaks, Podesta explains their attempts to subvert the Catholic church with progressive organizations created for the purpose of prompting a "Catholic Spring." The "seeds of this revolution" take the form of progressive groups like Catholics in Alliance for the Common Good and Catholics United. From WikiLeaks:

    Remember the Bill Clinton, Loretta Lynch "tarmac summit" and its gross appearance of impropriety?  That gross appearance of impropriety cloud hangs heavy over Hillary and her emails yet again.  WikiLeaks has released, among the Podesta emails, a tidbit showing Team Hillary coordinating with the DOJ regarding an ongoing open records lawsuit regarding Hillary's email scandal. The Hill reports:
    An official within Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton’s campaign appeared to have discussions with sources inside the Department of Justice (DOJ) about ongoing open records lawsuits regarding the former secretary of State’s emails, according to an email released on Tuesday. The information about an upcoming court event would have been public knowledge and open for all to attend. And it’s unclear whether the people Fallon spoke to at the Justice Department were officials who regularly communicate with the public.

    The leaked Podesta emails are providing a lot of insight into Hillary and her team, including tidbits that support suspicions long-held on the right and now seemingly confirmed. The latest example may implicate the Hillary campaign in illegal activity (yet again).  The emails in question appear to show the Hillary campaign engaged in illegal coordination with George Soros. The Daily Caller reports:
    Leaked emails from Hillary Clinton campaign manager John Podesta’s personal email account published by WikiLeaks reveal the Clinton campaign’s coordination with George Soros’s Open Society Foundations on the subject of police reform.

    Yesterday, WikiLeaks released excerpts of speeches given by Hillary Clinton that were part of a batch of what it says were 2,060 emails hacked from an account belonging to Podesta. The speech excerpts appear to have been gathered and emailed to a select group of people, including Podesta, in response to a request for "flags" in Hillary's paid speeches compiled by Clinton campaign research director Tony Carrk. Carrk highlights each section with the reason for its "flag"; you can tell what he wrote because it is either in all caps as a heading or has *asterisks* to denote it's not from one of Hillary's speeches. Regarding the speeches themselves:  they contain some rather interesting revelations.  For example, she speaks openly about her desire to see open borders in the near future, about how Wall Street needs to fix Wall Street, about her positive view of the Keystone pipeline and trade, about her goal of instituting a Canadian-style "universal health care system," and about her need to have "both a public and a private position" on policy issues.

    Chelsea Manning, the U.S. Army private formerly known as Bradley Manning, is suing in federal court over allegations that the U.S. Army is delaying her hormone therapy treatment. Manning, who is currently serving a 35 year prison sentence in Leavenworth, Kansas, alleges that her diagnosed gender dysphoria will cause her mental state to spiral if left untreated: Via the ACLU:
    "The government continues to deny Ms. Manning’s access to necessary medical treatment for gender dysphoria, without which she will continue to suffer severe psychological harms," said Chase Strangio, attorney in the ACLU Gay Lesbian Bisexual and Transgender project and co-counsel on Ms. Manning’s case. "Such clear disregard of well-established medical protocols constitutes cruel and unusual punishment." Ms. Manning is represented by the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU), the ACLU of the Nation’s Capital, the ACLU of Kansas and civilian defense counsel David E. Coombs. Last month, Ms. Manning’s legal team sent a letter to the DOD and Army officials demanding that she receive treatment for gender dysphoria in accordance with medical standards of care, including hormone therapy and permission to follow female grooming standards. Her treatment needs have continued to be unmet and her distress has escalated. "I am proud to be standing with the ACLU behind Chelsea on this very important issue." said David E. Coombs, "It is my hope that through this action, Chelsea will receive the medical care that she needs without having to suffer any further anguish."

    Bradley Manning was sentenced by a military judge today to 35 years in prison for releasing classified information to Wikileaks, the largest leak in US history. The army soldier apologized to the court last week, saying “I am sorry that my actions hurt people; I am...

    Wikileaks has been known to release insurance files from time to time.  These are dumps of encrypted files that can only be opened by those who hold the encryption key to do so.  For one, it makes certain that information reaches the public in the event those who hold the information aren't available to release it themselves.  It can also be sort of a secret holder's way of saying, "back off, or I'll go all secret-exposing nuclear on you..." But Wikileaks' latest release of such files has everybody talking.  That's because they're almost 400 gigabytes large.  That's large. So, folks are all wondering, what could possibly be in there?

    A military judge deciding the fate of Wikileaker Bradley Manning will announce her verdict on Tuesday afternoon. Army Col. Denise Lind, the judge presiding over the case, has heard arguments from prosecution and defense for the last two months.  Closing arguments ended on Friday. Manning faces over 20...
