Democratic National Committee information was made public again on Tuesday by the hacker known as Guccifer 2.0, <b>Politico reports</b>.
In an unrelated incident, personal emails from Colin Powell were leaked to <b>BuzzFeed News </b>and The Daily Caller. In those emails, Powell called Donald Trump a "national disgrace" and "international pariah."
Powell has not confirmed the authenticity of those emails, but told BuzzFeed, "I'm not denying it."
What was in the DNC leak?
The leak mostly consisted of personal and contact information of DNC donors and members, including Democratic vice presidential nominee Tim Kaine's cell phone number, <b>NBC News reports</b>.
White House officials' contact information and technology information related to DNC apps were also leaked.
But others, including Green Party candidate Jill Stein, saw signs of a "pay-to-play" scheme.
And some saw evidence that Democrats were using early voting to their advantage.
The DNC is the victim of a crime an illegal cyberattack by Russian state-sponsored agents who seek to harm the Democratic Party...
However, those reports have not been confirmed to be accurate. Interim DNC chair Donna Brazile said Russian-sponsored hackers were involved and that the releases may have been forged.
What about the Colin Powell emails?
These reportedly came from Powell's personal email.
Powell did not confirm the accuracy of the emails, but a <b>Powell aide told CNN</b> they were accurate.
Yup, the whole birther movement was racist.
In the emails, Powell is also harshly critical of Trump for leading the "birther" movement.
He also criticized the press for its coverage of Trump, saying "To go on and call him an idiot just emboldens him."
HRC could have killed this two years ago ... I told her staff three times not to try that gambit.
Powell also told Clinton not to try to use his use of a private email server as an excuse for her doing so, <b>The Intercept reports</b>.
