1. Hacker dumps personal info for Democratic representatives and donors, plus top Republicans
The hacker(s) who previously breached Democratic National Committee records released Friday evening a cache of personal contact information, including private email addresses and cell numbers, for nearly all of the 186 Democrats in the House of Representatives. The leak from Guccifer 2.0 also includes the names of major Democratic donors along with their Social Security numbers, plus several internal Democratic memos. The hacker has promised this data is just a fragment of a much larger collection soon to be published at Wikileaks. But complicating the narrative that Guccifer 2.0 and the DCLeaks site where he publicized the DNC hacks are specifically targeting Democrats is the discovery that DCLeaks also shared leaked emails from hundreds of Republicans, including Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) and former presidential campaign staff of Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.).
