WikiLeaks releases hacked vociemail recordings of the DNC days after they released nearly 20,000 DNC emails

Days after WikiLeaks hacked into the US Democratic National Committee (DNC) emails and released their private email communication, they released voicemails of the DNC. The voicemails are related to the batch of about 20,000 leaked emails WikiLeaks published earlier this week, which revealed that people within the supposedly neutral DNC were in fact working to help Hillary Clinton secure the Democratic nomination against Bernie Sanders. According to CNN:

Wikileaks released a series of voicemails Wednesday from the Democratic National Committee hack showing donors plying top-level officials for favors, and one donor expressing outrage that Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders had won a say in the drafting of the party's platform.
In one of the 29 voicemails released, a woman who donated $300 to Clinton called the party finance director Andrew Wright and said she was angry the party was acquiescing to Sanders by allowing liberal activist and prominent Sanders surrogate Cornel West to have one of 15 seats on the party's platform-writing panel.
"I'm furious about what you are doing for Bernie Sanders, he's getting way too much influence. I'm on a fixed income, I spent over $300, donated to Hillary, what I see is the DNC bending over backwards for Bernie and Bernie is the worst person in the world to even be running in the Democratic Party, because he's not a Democrat," said the unidentified woman in a voicemail that was sent to Wright's DNC email account.
In another voicemail, Bill Eacho, a longtime Democratic donor and former U.S. ambassador, inquired about the details of a "small dinner with President Obama."
The voicemails are related to the batch of about 20,000 leaked emails WikiLeaks published earlier this week, which revealed that elements within the supposedly neutral DNC were in fact working to help Hillary Clinton secure the Democratic nomination. Those emails ultimately led DNC Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz announcing her resignation. But most of the released voicemails amount to innocuous messages from one person trying to reach someone else.
A few of the messages highlight the relationships between donors looking for favors and goodies, and the party officials trying to bring in money to their coffers.
The owner of WikiLeaks Julian Assange told CNN in an interview that DNC officials were taking advantage of the possibility of Russia's involvement in the hack to distract voters from the contents of the emails, which have revealed shocking internal discord and collusion.

Speaking from the Ecuadorian embassy in London, where Assange has resided for five years now, he said:
"It raises questions about the natural instincts of Clinton that when confronted with a serious domestic political scandal, she tries to blame the Russians, blame the Chinese, et cetera. Because if she does that while in government, it could lead to problems."
