WikiLeaks issued a cryptic online warning to Democratic National Committee interim Chairwoman Donna Brazile and Democratic vice presidential nominee Tim KaineTimothy (Tim) Michael KaineOnly four Dem senators have endorsed 2020 candidates Democratic proposals to overhaul health care: A 2020 primer Dems ask Justice Dept to release findings of Acosta-Epstein investigation MORE on Thursday. 

“We have a surprise in store for @TimKaine and @DonnaBrazile,” the Wikileaks account tweeted. 


Brazile has had more than one run-in with WikiLeaks since the group began released stolen emails.

She took the interim chairwoman post after the site posted emails from the DNC breach, ultimately leading to the resignation of then-Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman-Schultz, a Florida lawmaker.

And Brazile’s name appeared in the emails stolen from Hillary ClintonHillary Diane Rodham ClintonClinton campaign chief: Mueller report 'lays out a devastating case' against Trump Hillicon Valley: Cyber, tech takeaways from Mueller report | Millions of Instagram passwords exposed internally by Facebook | DHS unrolling facial recognition tech in airports | Uber unveils new safety measures after student's killing Heavily redacted Mueller report leaves major questions unanswered MORE campaign chairman John Podesta, in a message that appears to show she had been given advance notice of a primary debate question that she shared with the campaign.

Kaine has thus far been relatively unscathed by the site’s leaks. Both Kaine and Brazile have claimed that at least some of the emails on WikiLeaks may have been doctored.

This week, the Ecuadorian Embassy in London cut WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange’s internet access to prevent what it perceived as interference with the U.S. elections by the group.
