The French candidate Emmanuel Macron has been dealt a hard blow after a large-scale leak of confidential data related to him continues to make headlines. Unfortunately, some people claim to have found dubious information in the 9 gigabytes of files.
Multiple outlets have confirmed the authenticity of the leaks, such include which describes the drop as containing emails and other campaign documents that Macron’s campaign said on Friday had been stolen. BBC reported that French media and the public have been warned that spreading the data in advance of tomorrow’s election would breach strict election rules and could bring criminal charges.
Despite France’s efforts to keep it mum on the leaks, social media users from the United States are speaking about them loud and clear, sharing some information that if true could prove rather embarrassing for Macron.
Got News has reported having found files evidence that Emmanuel Macron is on the mailing list of VestiareGay as revealed by the leaked files. The outlet claims that such Mailing lists are opt-in only. The outlet also declares, the rumors circulated about French presidential candidate Emmanuel Macron’s inner circle are true, in reference to apparently yet-unfounded allegations that Macron is gay.
The news outlet also claims to have found evidence that Macron’s senior campaign member Alain Tourret once ordered a designer drug using bitcoin. The outlet presented screenshots to support its claims. The outlet points out that Tourret purchased MMC-3, a combination of effects similar to ecstasy and crystal meth.
Got News indicates that the package was sent to a government address, which may not be as reckless as it first appears. This is because if the package is sent to his public address, as opposed to a home address that is not known to the public, then, if caught, he can claim to be victims of a prank. Reports from AFP indicate that current French President Francois Hollande has vowed to respond to the massive hack.
