There's a lot more to come from the DNC Hack.

The new trove of documents apparently pilfered from the DMC released after Wikileaks yesterday announced via its official Twitter account that a "series" about Hillary Clinton is coming soon.

The emails released by Wikileaks were handed over to the whistleblower organization by the DNC hacker using handle " Guccifer 2.0 ," who hacked DNC’s computer systems in a such a way that the hacker was able to read all email and chat traffic.
