WikiLeaks on Tuesday released 1,000 new emails that it claims were taken from the account of a longtime adviser to the Clinton family, in the third release of its kind over the last week.

The publication of the 1,190 emails on Tuesday morning appears to be part of a strategic campaign to slowly release messages allegedly from John Podesta, Hillary ClintonHillary Diane Rodham ClintonBiden slams Trump over golf gif hitting Clinton Overnight Cybersecurity: Equifax hit by earlier hack | What to know about Kaspersky controversy | Officials review EU-US privacy pact Overnight Tech: Equifax hit by earlier undisclosed hack | Facebook takes heat over Russian ads | Alt-right Twitter rival may lose domain MORE’s campaign chairman and a former White House chief of staff during Bill ClintonBill ClintonGOP rep: North Korea wants Iran-type nuclear deal Lawmakers, pick up the ball on health care and reform Medicaid The art of the small deal MORE's presidency.

The anti-secrecy organization published separate batches of 2,000 emails on Monday and Friday, leading to a series of embarrassing headlines, which Clinton’s critics have been eager to promote.

Previous releases have included details about the Hillary Clinton campaign’s internal strategy and what appear to be excerpts of controversial speeches Clinton gave to Wall Street after stepping down as secretary of State.

Clinton’s campaign has claimed that the releases are part of an orchestrated effort from Russian hackers to undermine her presidential campaign and boost Republican rival Donald TrumpDonald John TrumpBiden slams Trump over golf gif hitting Clinton Trump Jr. declines further Secret Service protection: report Report: Mueller warned Manafort to expect an indictment MORE.

Trump, for his part, has appeared to relish in the release of the messages.

“I love WikiLeaks,” the GOP nominee said at a rally in Pennsylvania on Monday, before reading material from some of the messages. The Republican’s campaign has accused Clinton and her allies of being two-faced, crafting separate messages for the public and in private.
