"Another filing in the FOIA case went in last night or will go in this A.M. that indicates it will be a while (2016) before the State Department posts the emails", Kadzik emailed Podesta.
"The Clinton camp has been able to project a neo-McCarthyist hysteria that Russian Federation is responsible for everything", said Assange, who has been seeking refuge in the Ecuadorian embassy in London.

It is free and he doesn't have to travel anywhere to do.
"Just so I'm clear - we're looking for a press strategy on this?" Meanwhile, an unusual afternoon dump by Wikileaks of 1,000 emails Thursday - dubbed the "DOJ/FBI/Huma Special" - offered another hint of duplicity by the Clinton camp relating to the email scandal.
Critics, including Trump, say she endangered government secrets and evaded transparency laws. Katz reported from London.
