Hillary Clinton’s campaign appears to be on edge regarding a potential bombshell Wikileaks release between now and election day.
Earlier today, Clinton campaign communications director Jennifer Palmieri tweeted this:
Friends, please remember that if you see a whopper of a Wikileaks in next two days – it's probably a fake.
— Jennifer Palmieri (@jmpalmieri) November 6, 2016
Wikileaks’ Twitter responded by pointing out the organization has never leaked false information, insisting they’re not about to start now.
Biggest 'whoppers' are those your campaign has been telling https://t.co/8NCYYfwRIV
WikiLeaks will continue its perfect record.

Wikileaks maintains that, for more than a decade, it has never released even a single piece of false information.
But will Hillary Clinton supporters acknowledge this, should a bombshell release make waves between now and November 8? Or will they simply believe what Jennifer Palmieri says, write it off as fake and continue voting as they’d planned?
Hillary Clinton’s camp has certainly put a lot of effort into discrediting Wikileaks. They’ve repeatedly sought to cast doubt on the veracity of emails from the whistleblowing organization that reveal corruption within Clinton’s circle.
However, multiple data analysts have proven that these emails are 100% authentic. People have know of their authenticity for more than a month now.
BTW, Donna Brazile is a big fat liar. We can verify some of the Wikileaks emails, including this one pic.twitter.com/K9qDMXHyvp

This still hasn’t stopped the Clinton campaign from doing their best to smear Wikileaks.
They’ve even tried to paint the organization as tied to Russia – an idea even some liberal publications admit is far-fetched.
There is no evidence to suggest that any of the WikiLeaks emails are faked or that Russians accessed and released them.
What’s more, Hillary’s claim that ’17 intelligence agencies confirmed Russia’s involvement in the email hacks’ is completely bogus.
But it works. Many liberals have eaten this rhetoric right up.

Let Russia keep dumping fake emails. We don't care about the damned emails orchestrated by dictator Putin and Trump his puppet. Up Hillary.

Could Jennifer Palmieri’s tweet be part of a concerted effort to appeal to voters like this, who accept anything the Clinton campaign says?
Is the Clinton campaign on edge about damning information from Hillary’s email server that has yet to make it out?
