A hacker believed to be operating on behalf of the Russian government has released thousands of emails taken from the personal account of Capricia Penavic Marshall, a key Clintonworld figure who worked under Hillary Clinton at the State Department.

The emails, which were released on the anonymously-operated site DC Leaks, are broken down into eight categories: “Atlantic Council,” “Clinton Foundation,” “Conversations with Clinton’s team,” “favor,” “fundraising,” and several others.

The Daily Caller’s investigative team is scouring through the records.

Marshall’s central importance to the Clintons’ political operations was realized earlier this year by Citizens United. The conservative watchdog group filed a federal lawsuit for Marshall’s State Department emails.

At State, Marshall served as chief of protocol from 2009 to 2013. In that role, she helped the State Department and White House manage issues related to diplomatic protocol.

She entered the Clinton sphere during Bill Clinton’s 1992 presidential campaign, working as a special assistant to Hillary Clinton. She later worked on Clinton’s senatorial and presidential campaigns, helping lead fundraising efforts.

The DC Leaks emails appear to be authentic.

The emails, which appear to be from Marshall’s Gmail account, span the period from March 2015 through June 2016.

On Tuesday, a hacker known as Guccifer 2.0, who is also believed to be affiliated with Russian intelligence agencies, announced the release of documents allegedly taken from the Clinton Foundation. They turned out to be mundane documents hacked from the Democratic party of Virginia and the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee.
