As WikiLeaks churned out more revelations about the Democratic Party and the Clinton Foundation, the whistle-blowing web site announced it was under a cyber-attack.
“Our email publication servers are under a targeted DoS attack since releasing #DNCLeak2,” WikiLeaks tweeted Monday.

Twitter’s website was also down briefly Monday at around the same time, 1:30 a.m. ET on Monday.
Twitter went down because Wikileaks released #DNCleak2

WikiLeaks posted a message to its Facebook account claiming an ongoing denial-of-service attack on its servers after reporting a brief outage.
“We are still under a DoS attack on our e-mail publication servers and it appears that Twitter is down as well, we are unable to confirm if this is an attack on twitter at this time,” the post read.
Few doubted this was a coincidence.
Wikileaks and twitter were both shut down briefly after Wikileaks dropped info that can get Hillary imprisoned! Coincidence? Russia? NOT

The announcement came as WikiLeaks achieved its goal on Sunday of publishing 50,000 emails from the Gmail account of John Podesta, chairman of Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton’s campaign.
Among the revelations from WikiLeaks:
An internal research document said as Secretary of State Hillary Clinton “disregarded ethics guidelines” in 2010 when she raised more than $72 million for the U.S. Pavilion at the World’s Fair in Shanghai in 2010. The document said Clinton took money from contributors who later “received favorable treatment” from the State Department and also donated to the Clinton Foundation, according to a 2015 internal Clinton research document revealed Sunday by WikiLeaks.
In April 2016, the Clinton campaign compiled questions for CNN reporter Wolf Blitzer to ask in an upcoming interview with Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump.
Some form of agreement existed between the Bernie Sanders and Clinton campaign based on information the Clinton camp had on Sanders. It was referenced by Clinton campaign manager Robbie Mook in a 2015 email that read, “This isn’t in keeping w the agreement. Since we clearly have some leverage, would be good to flag this for him.”
