WikiLeaks on Saturday published a new batch of more than 800 emails it says were stolen from the archive of Hillary ClintonHillary Diane Rodham ClintonJill Stein: 'I am not a Russian spy' Trump criticizes Clinton for suggesting Jill Stein was Russian asset Graham: I'm seeking to make Trump successful 'but not at all costs' MORE campaign chairman John Podesta.


The Saturday morning release is the eighth publication by WikiLeaks of what they say is Podesta's emails.

In all, the group has published more than 11,000 emails.

WikiLeaks claims to have 50,000 of Podesta's messages, indicating it plans to release them in batches moving forward.

U.S. intelligence agencies have said the release may be part of a Russia-backed plot to interfere with the presidential election.

Clinton’s campaign has refused to verify the authenticity of the emails, which stretch back for years, claiming their release is evidence of Kremlin efforts to elect Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump.

So far, the leaked emails have contained several embarrassing revelations about the Clinton campaign and its allies, including excerpts of previously secret speeches Clinton, the Democratic nominee, gave to Wall Street and signs that the campaign was given advance notice of a debate question.
