It looks like WikiLeaks is finally going to release information about Hillary Clinton this week. The WikiLeaks official Twitter account announced that a “series” about Clinton is coming soon, before the DNC begins. Some voters are excited, while others doubt WikiLeaks’ announcement, since they’ve been talking about releasing damaging information about Hillary Clinton for quite some time and the DNC is less than a week away. (Read our list of the most DAMAGING emails now that WikiLeaks has made its release, right here.)

Here’s what you need to know.


WikiLeaks Is Releasing a Series of Documents About Clinton

WikiLeaks is preparing to release a series of documents about Clinton before the Democratic National Convention begins. Exactly what will be released isn’t known, but we can gather some clues from previous information. Guccifer 2.0 has been releasing information about the DNC and Hillary Clinton, which you can see on his blog. According to Guccifer 2.0, he sent something far more damaging than anything that he’s released to the public so far to WikiLeaks for release.

It’s likely that WikiLeaks will have something significant in its release. WikiLeaks released an insurance file in mid-June, the type of file that it only releases when something major is about to happen.

This file serves as a type of “deadman’s switch” that is currently encrypted. WikiLeaks will release a second encryption key to unlock the file if they are prevented from making a planned announcement. Because of previous statements made by WikiLeaks and Julian Assange, many people wondered if this insurance file was meant to ensure that WikiLeaks can release potentially damaging information about Hillary Clinton. You can read more about the insurance file in our story here.


Some People Just Want WikiLeaks to Leave Clinton Alone

Not everyone is happy about this news, however. On Twitter, some people posted that they’d rather not have WikiLeaks release anything because they believe Clinton is a better option than Trump:

Others wish they would just send the files directly to the superdelegates and the release would cause them to change their minds about voting for Clinton. Some are even wondering if this is why Bernie Sanders still wants his delegates to show up for the roll call vote at the DNC:

Still others think it doesn’t matter. They’ve stated that if the FBI director’s statements about how Hillary Clinton was reckless with classified information weren’t enough to change delegates’ support, whatever is in the release likely won’t be enough either. What do you think?

Others are just doubting the importance of WikiLeaks’ release altogether. They’ve been talking about releasing information about Clinton for quite a while now, and the only information released so far was “re-released” files, organized differently, that were previously available to the public. On Reddit one person commented:

“Either deliver the goods Jules, or head back into the wilderness. Us Bernie supporters can only cope with so many false promises.”

However, it’s likely the information released will be significant. WikiLeaks doesn’t release insurance files ahead of time without a reason. They may have been specifically waiting to do the release until it was very close to the DNC. Whatever happens, we will update this article with more information as it is available.

  1. She will deny, lie, and blame others for whatever. The FBI and AG will say she did not mean to do it so it’s okay since she’s a Clinton. If need be Obama will pardon her as a last resort option. In return as POTUS she will appoint Obama to the SCOTUS.

  2. Even if she succeeds and is elected, it’s only a matter of time before the House Republicans move to impeach her, she will probably survive the trial in the Senate unless the GOP can hold and increase their numbers…either way it won’t be good for the nation.

    • Lay down the bong and shred the list of free shit you wanted when you thought Bernie was going to be president. The Democratic party is rigged. Trump called it a couple of days ago and I’ll be damn if he wasn’t right! Get on the Trump train now before its to late.

  3. Actually, the State Dept. recently released the correction to the FBI’S,so report on those “classified emails” that Hillary was so careless with. State says this FBI was wrong and the emails in question were unclassified and were NOT CLASSIFIED. Sorry about that, Trumpeters.

  4. So you want Trump? This reminds me of how Hitler played the Germans into electing him. The comparison is truly eerie, because Trump is playing his base in exactly the same way. Then it was the Jews, now it’s Muslims. So go ahead, suckers, elect this sociopath. Just don’t say you weren’t warned. I don’t care for Hillary either but she won’t destroy our democracy. Trump very possibly will. Personally, I’m a Sanders supporter, but my dislike of Hillary is NOTHING in comparison to my FEAR of Trump and the rabidly radical Republicans.

    • Bill screwed Monica when Bill was President! Both Bill and Hillary will screw us all if she becomes President. You really want Bill back in the White House? Have you ever heard of Cathy O’brien? She wrote a book: Tranceformation of America. You can read it free at Archive dot org.

    • She is , was, and will be a corporate shill. She may not destroy the “democracy”, but the next election may very well be Wall Street against Wal Mart. At least THAT would be the truth. I will NOT vote for her or Trump. For the first time in 49 years of voting Democrat and 70 years of life, I will not vote for the lesser of two evils as I do not know which one is the lesser! This primary was something we only see in third would countries or dictatorships. Why did they even bother to have one? It certainly was not open and unbiased. Why not just save millions of dollars and anoint her Queen? All the time, money, and work to stage a false primary with no choice. I will either not vote for Pres or write in Sanders. (I have been told a write in will not work, but according to the news, Sanders IS signed up in all states that let you vote write in and Ohio IS one). I still think she and the Dems are bankrolling Trump to make her look palatable. It is not happening for me, sorry. If the Democrats want to force her into this race, let the chips fall where they may. Trump is indeed to be feared, but I would rather go up in a cloud of nuke dust than vote for this snake. She is not going to make anything better, just stagnate for another four years. I am getting too old to wait for another chance of redemption. She has lied and flip flopped on so many things that I no longer even know what she stands for (Republican from what I believe). She will say and do anything to win just like Nixon did and we know where that went! There are no laws making her follow anything she has said she will do nor even the platform of the Party. THAT is the scary thing!

    • The comparison you are making between Jews in the holocaust and Muslims today is disgusting. There were no Jewish extremists going on blowing up innocent Germans. Hitler was simply a racists. Trumps rhetoric about not letting in immigrants from countries that sponsor or harbor terrorists is just sensible war time policy. During war you tighten your borders. Period.
