Investigators believe that more than 100 personal email accounts of party officials, groups and even Hillary Clinton’s key campaign staff were compromised.
The discovery has many in the party concerned that another email dump, like the one that cost the DNC Chairwoman her position, could come from WikiLeaks just before the November elections and reveal extremely damaging information about Hillary.
The source of the hack is still in-question. WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange has hinted that the murdered DNC staffer, Seth Rich, might have been a source.

Rich’s 4am death was a result of him being shot four times in the back. Police are treating it like a robbery, but Seth’s belongings, including his wallet and watch, were not taken.
The FBI is investigating possible Russian involvement based on the code used in the hacking attack.
