WikiLeaks has released audio recordings of voicemails purportedly to and from Democratic National Committee members.
The bulk of the 29 voicemails published on the WikiLeaks website are messages left asking for calls back. One is a 16-second clip of a man and his young child talking about going to see elephants at a zoo.
There is also a 59-second voicemail that appears to be from a Clinton supporter who promises to leave the Democratic Party if it continues to “coddle” Sanders.
“I’m furious about what you are doing for Bernie Sanders, he’s getting way too much influence,” the woman says. “I’m on a fixed income. I spend over $300 donated to Hillary and what I see is the DNC bending over backwards for Bernie.”
Another voicemail from a woman with a 480 area code, which covers Phoenix, includes her asking why the DNC allowed Sanders to include Cornel West, who has been critical of President Barack Obama, on the platform committee.
There are two calls from an ambassador’s office regarding an invitation for a St. Patrick’s Day reception at the White House. A separate call from another ambassador asks for details about a small dinner with Obama.
One call is from someone asking how to reach first lady Michelle Obama. Another is from a woman asking for an unspecified favor.
On Friday, WikiLeaks published more than 19,000 internal emails and 8,000 attachments taken from the DNC between January and May 25. The emails showed committee staffers supporting Hillary Clinton while publicly promising to remain neutral during the primary elections between her and Sen. Bernie Sanders.
DNC head Debbie Wasserman Schultz resigned over the emails.
