WikiLeaks set to deliver another blow to the Clinton campaign

The Twitter account belonging to the hacker group WikiLeaks featured a mysterious tweet last night hinting that another release of documents related to the presidential campaign was imminent, perhaps as soon as today.

Previous releases of John Podesta's emails by the group have embarrassed the Clinton campaign.

The Hill:​

“We transition to phrase [sic] three of our US election coverage next week. Keep us strong: https://shop.wikileaks.org/donate,” wrote the site. 

It did not provide information about what the third phase entails or if there are still more revelations to come.

Wikileaks supporters, now including a number of disgruntled GOP nominee Donald Trump and Bernie Sanders supporters, immediately replied with tweets expressing hope that phase three would ultimately damage Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton's campaign. User “CorruptMedia” responded with a Photoshopped estimating what CNN coverage of Clinton being escorted to jail would look like. 

A new archive of Clinton-related documents would further irk a campaign still reeling from FBI director James Comey's announcement on Friday that new emails related to the Clinton server probe had been discovered.

But there is at least some reason to believe Wikileaks could release material that is not solely Clinton related.

Wikileaks has already posted stolen emails from the Democratic National Committee and Clinton campaign chief John Podesta. The hacker or hackers Guccifer 2.0 took credit for the DNC breach and are widely believed to be a front for a Russian intelligence group tied to the Podesta breach.

Guccifer 2.0 was also involved in the attack on the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee. Guccifer 2.0, who claims to be a lone Romanian male, leaked files to The Hill and other sites from both the DNC and DCCC hacks. 

Talking with The Hill this summer, Guccifer 2.0 said he sent the brunt of the files taken from the DCCC attack to Wikileaks. If true, those files have not been released by the site yet. 

You have to think that with WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange's animus toward Hillary Clinton, he would have saved something really juicy for a release a week before the election.  Guccifer earlier claimed to have hacked the Clintons' private server, although authorities say there is no evidence that the server was ever breached. 

But there is speculation that with the discovery of emails from Huma Abedin on Anthony Weiner's laptop, there may be other sources of Hillary emails that have yet to be tapped.

Regardless, WikiLeaks is setting up the Clinton campaign for a one-two punch that could affect her chances at victory.
