Julian Asssange’s WikiLeaks first unearthed the scandal prompting apology from CNN, when Donna Brazile served as the CNN commentator during the controversial debate leak.

CNN chief Jeff Zucker said after a thorough probe and “complete investigation” into the leaking, CNN found that “This behavior was completely unacceptable and we are clear, exactly where they came from.”

Zucker termed the incident “very unfortunate situation,” and that “One bad apple, I don’t think ruins the entire process. Clearly this was unprofessional and this should not have happened and this has been dealt with.”

Mrs. Brazile, currently holding the interim chair of the Democratic National Committee said, “My conscience — as an activist, a strategist — is very clear”.

She justified her action saying that “if I had to do it all over again, I would know a hell of a lot more about cyber security,” hinting she wouldn’t mind going to any extent to get Hillary elected as US president.

Wikieaks has reacted strongly to Clinton Campaigns covert operations and cover-ups during Primary and Election race.
