One major source of controversy and intrigue during this presidential election as been the release of emails and other documents that were never supposed to see the light of day. Most recently, we've been treated to an insider's view of the machinations that have been going on within the Clinton campaign. We've had a rare glimpse into the issues and plans that have been discussed by Hillary's campaign manager, John Podesta, Democrat Party operatives, and the candidate herself.

Central to the release of these documents has been the organization WikiLeaks and its founder, Julian Assange.
