>> WikiLeaks releasing about two dozen voicemail recordings that says were hacked from the Democratic National Committee's servers. The latest batch of files leaked just as President Obama was singing the praises of Hillary Clinton at the party's nominating convention Wednesday night. The timing of the release appears intended to further embarrass the DNC, which was rocked by the publication of some 19000 emails last week that showed party leaders is favoring Clinton over rival Bernie Sanders during the primaries.

And says the Vermont senator should not be given a speaking spot at the convention.
