WikiLeaks releases audio from Democratic Party hack

Washington— WikiLeaks released a set of audio recordings Wednesday apparently hacked from the Democratic National Committee’s servers, including a message from an irate Hillary Clinton supporter demanding the party stop “bending over backwards” for Bernie Sanders.
Links to the 29 recordings were posted on Twitter a few hours before US President Barack Obama took the stage in Philadelphia to address the party’s national convention, a meeting that formally nominated Clinton as the Democratic candidate for the White House.
The confab is meant to be a show of unity, but instead has exposed the raw anger of Sanders supporters who feel disenfranchised by the primary process, and the WikiLeaks seemed timed to embarrass the party and Clinton.
The audio recordings do not appear to contain any bombshell revelations.
The anti-secrecy website on Friday leaked 19,000 emails from the accounts of several top Democratic party leaders.
At least two email messages suggested an insider effort to hobble Sanders’ upstart campaign against Clinton — including by seeking to present him as an atheist in deeply religious states.
The uproar following the leak forced party chief Debbie Wasserman Schultz to abruptly announce her resignation on the eve of the convention she was meant to preside over.—APP
