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 ClintonO’Malley tells Dems not to fear Trump FBI informant gathered years of evidence on Russian push for US nuclear fuel deals, including Uranium One, memos show Pelosi blasts California Republicans for supporting tax bill MORE’s campaign chairman and a former White House chief of staff during Bill ClintonBill ClintonBill Clinton distributes relief supplies in Puerto Rico In Washington and Hollywood, principle is sad matter of timing Mika Brzezinski: Bill Clinton needs to apologize or stop talking 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.

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.
