French Presidential Campaign Claims 'Massive Hack'Fears of a hacking campaign targeting centrist French presidential candidate Emmanuel Macron came to fruition in a last minute information dump Friday evening. The leaked memos and emails appeared online just hours before a legally- required midnight media blackout on election coverage. Voters will head to the polls on Sunday amidst confusion over what information the hacked documents actually contain. French presidential candidate Jean- Luc Melenchon is pulling out all the stops in the final days of. Macron’s opponent, Marine Le Pen comes from the National Front party which has a history of virulent racism and positions itself as anti- NATO and anti- EU. Analysts have worried for months that any cyber attacks on the French election process would come from Russian operatives and would aim to help Le Pen, just as they allegedly intended to help the Trump campaign.
French law requires the media to cease publishing about the election 4. Sunday. Likewise, campaigns must stop making statements at the same time. That left the Macron campaign in a tough situation, and it released a statement four minutes before the cutoff time.

Many analysts and Hillary Clinton herself have argued that the dump of her campaign emails by Wiki. Leaks last year was more about having a psychological impact than revealing scandalous information. The Macron campaign’s statement “This is not a simple pirating operation but indeed an attempt to destabilize the French presidential election,” The Macron campaign’s statement reads. That, of course, could just mean that they were spreading leaks the way they always do.
The National Front and its supporters are seizing the moment on social media.
