In a Friday tweet, WikiLeaks slammed the CIA for leaking information to NBC.   “The Obama admin/CIA is illegally funneling TOP SECRET//COMINT information to NBC for political reasons before PEOTUS even gets to read it,” the tweet read.   An NBC report last night touted “An exclusive, inside look” at the report connecting the Russian government to breaches of Democratic National Convention and other servers during election season sourced to two intelligence community sources.  The NBC broadcast included claims that Russia attacked the White House and that Russian had dual motives in the attack of disrupting the campaign and revenge on the Obama administration for delegitimizing Russian President Vladimir Putin throughout his administration.

Wikileaks, a site well known for publishing its own illegally funneled, classified leaks, has pushed back against the intelligence community’s determination that Russia leaked the fruits of those breaches to the site. Founder Assange has denied that WikiLeaks received the Clinton campaign emails from Russian hackers.  WikiLeaks and Assange have championed the dissemination of sensitive or classified in the past, publishing United States diplomatic cables and military information, emails from the 2014 Sony hack and internal documents from multiple other governments and political parties.
