In early May Russian hackers hacked the accounts of the movement En Marche! Julian Assange's website Wikileaks has put a search engine online to filter and view these documents. There are emails from the team of Jean-Louis Fousseret during Emmanuel's campaign Macron.
Rib, mobile numbers, bills ... are online
In the Wikileaks search engine put online this 31 July 2017, we find 21 emails signed by the team of Macron or that of Jean-Louis Fousseret support of the first hour of the candidate En Marche!
In these messages, exchanges around the campaign, and the visit of Emmanuel Macron in Besançon on September 27, 2016. Among the hacked mails, include documents such as the bank identity statement of the elected bisontin. The latter allegedly personally advanced invoices for the removal of candidate Macron.
We also discover exchanges around the CV of the director of communication of the city of Besançon who seems to have served several days a week of Emmanuel Macron's campaign.
Will complain or not?
Contacted by France 3 Franche-Comté, Jean-Louis Fousseret currently on holiday admits to discover the existence of these emails. "I'm going to see with En Marche! if we complain, "he said, regretting the publication of all these purely professional conversations and private items such as his bank details. As for the precise content of the emails, he had not yet watched them closely on Monday night. The elected said he had nothing to reproach himself. "Yes, I rented cars for the Macron meeting not to use municipal vehicles," he explains. "Yes, I paid the bills in my own name". Regarding the work of its director of communication in the Macron campaign, the elected president says that he has done things in full transparency by putting himself in the office of his work at the town hall.
Are these emails true?
Are these emails real or just fakes destined to destabilize the campaign of the future president of the French Republic?
The non-governmental organization Wikileaks posted 21,075 emails related to Emmanuel Macron's campaign. Wikileaks explains having verified the authenticity of these emails via the "DKIM verified" process which testifies to the authenticity of an email.
All e-mail services do not have an encryption system that allows the authentication of an e-mail. The DKIM system has certified two mails only for the elected bisontin. The others can be authentic without any computer proof being established.
Russian hackers hacked in total more than 71,000 emails sent between March 2009 and April 24, 2017.
Friday, May 5, 2017, an hour before the official end of the presidential election campaign and the second round, thousands of internal documents of the movement En Marche! (e-mails, accounting documents, quotes, invoices) appeared on social networks and spread at the speed of light.
The movement of Emmanuel Macron did not seem particularly worried about the content of the published documents and the damage that their revelation could cause. He then changed the passwords of these accounts.
