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 Clinton’s campaign chairman and a former White House chief of staff during Bill Clinton’s presidency.

{mosads}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 Trump.

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.
