The hacker who goes by the pseudonym “Guccifer 2.0” has announced plans to release a “dossier” on Democratic Rep. Ben Ray Lujan that allegedly was among documents stolen from the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC).
Although Guccifer 2.0 has previously released documents to WikiLeaks and news organizations, he indicated plans to publish the dossier on his personal website.
