Two days after emerging to post some DNC [Democratic National Committee] documents on the Internet, the hacker known by the nickname Guccifer 2.0 publishes some more.

This person comments on their new website, “It appears there are a lot of financial reports, donors lists, and their detailed personal information, including e-mail addresses and private cell phone numbers…I got tons of files and docs.” This person also promises to post more soon.

Business Insider notes: “The Washington Post’s initial report stated that the hacker’s avoidance of donor information indicates that the breach was likely the work of ‘traditional espionage,’ but the new information posted by Guccifer 2.0, if legitimate, seems to discredit that line of thinking.”

The DNC has not confirmed that the documents are genuine, but has not denied it either. It is unknown who Guccifer 2.0 is, but security experts hired by the DNC assert the Russian government is behind the leaks. (Business Insider, 6/18/2016)

June 18, 2016: Trump says Sanders is waiting for the FBI to knock Clinton out of the presidential race.

Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump notes that Bernie Sanders hasn’t quit the Democratic primary race despite Clinton having a majority of the pledged delegates and even more superdelegates. Trump says, “He’s waiting for the FBI to do what everybody thinks they’re going to do. I think he’s saying, ‘Let’s hang in there because it’s ultimately called the FBI convention. […] We’ll see if the right thing happens.’ Everybody knows what the right thing is.”

Sanders hasn’t made any comment that he’s waiting for the FBI’s decision to recommend Clinton’s indictment or not. (CNN, 6/18/2016)
