(International Business Times) WikiLeaks took to Twitter to suggest that President Barack Obama should provide it access to any material relating to Russia's reported involvement in the US election hack, offering to authenticate the documents for better credibility.
The whistle-blowing platform's tweet closely followed Obama's interview on 15 December with NPR, in which he took a tough stance on Russia and President Vladimir Putin's reported personal involvement in cyberattacks during the 2016 presidential elections.
During the election campaign WikiLeaks had published the Podesta emails, a trove of information stolen from the inbox of Hillary Clinton's campaign chief John Podesta.

On 15 December, speaking to a group of donors in New York, Clinton blamed Putin and Russia for the cyberattacks on the Democratic National Committee (DNC) and her campaign. She said that the attacks were in efforts to "undermine our democracy" and were ordered by Putin "because he has a personal beef against me."
