I searched for France, French, hacked and Macron....

...and can't find anything here from today about the hack of Macron's e-mails. The awful thing is that French law prohibits any publication of anything about the election at all 24 hours prior to election day. So the French people can't get any contextual explanation for whatever might have been released.

Has anything been posted here in DU that I just couldn't catch?

P.S. After I posted this I saw the post below, but it still doesn't show up on a search. Just my own OP...

5. French Campaign Hack: Fake docs mixed with authentic ones.

Search in French instead. Hashtag is #MacronLeaks.

People are busy tracking who is pushing this, and they are Trump accounts.

9. And if the hack came from Ukranine, that spells Manafort connections.

Maybe Trump is the hacker again?

6. I posted it earlier.

Here: https://www.democraticunderground.com/10029021674

I do deeply appreciate your attention to the matter, though. It's a global assault on democracy.

8. Here is some more info for you

http://www.newser.com/story/242355/macrons-team-says-it-suffered-massive-hack.html

(Newser) The campaign of French presidential candidate Emmanuel Macron says it has been the victim of a "massive and coordinated" hacking attack, the AP reports. His campaign said in a statement late Friday night that some campaign emails and financial documents were hacked a few weeks ago and are now being circulated on social media, but that they have been mixed with false documents. It said whoever is behind the leaked documents is trying to "seed doubt and disinformation" and destabilize Sunday's presidential runoff, comparing it to emails leaked from Hillary Clinton's US presidential campaign. Macron is the poll favorite going into Sunday's election against far-right leader Marine Le Pen.


CBS has also covered the story.

10. It's not such an awful thing. Macron was able to get out a statement saying that fake emails

were mixed in with the rest.

And now LePen can't spend the next two days using Russian propaganda against Macron.

Wikileaks and Russia really blew it with the timing.
