Probably everyone in the United States now knows that WikiLeaks – a theoretically impartial whistleblower website dedicated to leaking government and business documents and information – has been posting countless mails from and to Hillary Clinton for the last few weeks, the bulk of which has been incredibly boring and tells us nothing new, nothing that wasn’t already in the public domain through speeches, press releases and common sense.
Their impartiality has ensured that they have only released documents concerned with Clinton and no other candidate, and caused something of a stir, with accusations of hacking and improper actions being thrown left, right and center.
One of the main points in the long – and equally uninspiring – investigation by the GOP / Republicans has been that Clinton used a private server which could have been hacked, and was undoubtedly against the rules. It has been pointed out that her server – until WikiLeaks began receiving information – remained clean and unhacked, whereas State department and other government servers have been successfully hacked and accessed a number of times.

Since this is also something which The Donald has played upon, I thought it a matter of irony, of the sweetest sort, when Kevin Beaumont revealed that the servers at the Trump organisation are so out of date and so lacking in security that anyone could have hacked them.
Not, of course, that too many people would be interested in hotel and casino conversations, but the question remains: when will WikiLeaks, being so impartial and only concerned with revealing the truth, start publishing Trump mails?
