WikiLeaks claims it was hit with a DDoS attack after releasing major DNC leakby Mike Denison

WikiLeaks claims it was hit with a denial-of-service attack after what it called a major leak.

Fresh batch of hacked emails

Twitter's servers briefly went down early Monday morning, ABC News reports. However, WikiLeaks claimed the DDoS attack that hit its site's servers was more severe than the one targeting Twitter, and it took longer to recover.

As of about 6:20 a.m. Eastern time, it appears to be functioning, allowing users to access "#DNCLeak2," a fresh batch of leaked emails from the Democratic National Committee. 

WikiLeaks called the incident "rare" on Twitter.

Some thought the DDoS attack was part of an orchestrated pro-Clinton coverup.

It revitalized a conspiracy theory that Clinton had a former White House counsel killed.

Many also criticized The Washington Post, claiming it was echoing the DNC.
