Republican National Committee (RNC) Chairman Reince Priebus is predicting that more stolen emails causing trouble for Democrats are on the way.
“I think this is just the beginning. I think there are going to be more emails coming out,” Priebus told Sean Hannity during a radio interview Monday.

“What about the emails that show they were coordinating federal appointments for fundraising? This is just the beginning.”
The RNC chairman made similar comments in an interview on MSNBC.
Presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton’s campaign on Tuesday signaled it is bracing for the possibility of more damaging emails getting published heading into the general election.

“The WikiLeaks leak was obviously designed to hurt our convention,” Clinton communications director Jennifer Palmieri said. “I don’t think they’re done. That’s how they operate.”

WikiLeaks on Friday published 20,000 emails that had been stolen from the Democratic National Committee (DNC) earlier this year. Some of the emails show top officials criticizing Sen. Bernie Sanders’s (I-Vt.) presidential campaign.
Fallout over the emails spilled into the first day of the Democratic National Convention in Philadelphia on Monday. DNC Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz resigned from her post, and Sanders supporters repeatedly jeered mentions of Clinton’s name on the convention floor. Party officials apologized to Sanders, who urged his vocal supporters to back Clinton.
The FBI is investigating the leak, the agency announced Monday.
