3. Wikileaks starts releasing other hacked emails. With the Podesta emails almost all now public, Wikileaks is trying to get some attention for other emails that it obtained from inside the Democratic National Committee. This latest hacked email trove totals 8,263 emails from staffers within the DNC. As you can see from the graphic, Wikileaks has a goal in mind.
4. Did CNN get questions from the DNC for Trump? That's what is being reported on Twitter and in some news media circles today. But when you actually go look at the emails that were hacked from the Democratic National Committee, I didn't find any email from CNN to DNC staffers asking for help with questions. Instead, the email exchanges are among a group of DNC staffers. Why were they putting together a lengthy list of questions? Maybe to use in a press release after the Trump interview on CNN? I don't know the answer - but nowhere in the new emails from inside the DNC is there is anything about sending it to Wolf Blitzer or someone at CNN for them to use, and nothing that indicates CNN asked for that input. Maybe I missed something. Maybe I'm too naive, because I would never ask for that type of help. There is an email where a
DNC staffer says CNN is looking for questions for Cruz
, so I can understand how people put that together - but there is nothing like that on Trump's interview.
5. Election Eve is here for Wikileaks. There have been a lot of listeners and readers who have confidently assured me over the last month that Wikileaks was going to drop a bomb on Hillary Clinton and the Democrats. They have certainly dropped a number of interesting items through the Podesta emails, but nothing that has resulted in Clinton running off the rails. As I wrote on Sunday, the clock is ticking on Wikileaks. Maybe that's why they released a whole new trove of DNC emails on Sunday.
