Here are the fireworks that everyone was waiting to close 2017 out with. And it was brought to you buy, who else, Wikileaks.
On Saturday the New York Times posted a story with the headline,"Republican Attacks on Mueller and F.B.I. Open New Rift in G.O.P." Well at this point Wikileaks decided they couldn't take it anymore. Late Saturday night a Wikileaks Twitter post revealed that a New York Times reporter was feeding the State Department email updates of stories they were going to publish days in advance.
All while Hillary Clinton was Secretary of State.
Email shows New York Times handed over Cablegate's publication schedule to the US government (without telling @WikiLeaks) giving the State Department, then headed by Hillary Clinton, up to 9 days in advance to spin the revelations or create diversions. https://t.co/IMrDOwoCd2 pic.twitter.com/CT4XkEs8Mc

Why were they dishing these stories out days before publication? So the State Department and Hillary could come up with a spin as to why they happened. Or better yet so they can create a diversion to steer the mainstream media in another direction.
It's very interesting who was involved with the Wikileaks emails. Scott Shane is the national security reporter for The New York Times and Philip Crowley was the recipient of the email. Crowley was at the time the United States Assistant Secretary of State for Public Affairs under Clinton’s State Department.
As you may have guessed the Clinton scandals aren't going anywhere for 2018.
Remember Friday the Justice Department released thousands of emails that were on Anthony Weiner's personal laptop. Of course he had classified information without proper clearance.
"Several emails with classified information from former Hillary Clinton aide Huma Abedin were among a tranche of documents released Friday that were found on Anthony Weiner's personal computer during an FBI probe," USA Today reported.
After the emails were made public, Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton called the release a "major victory."
"Judicial Watch has forced the State Department to finally allow Americans to see these public documents," Fitton said. "That these government docs were on Anthony Weiner’s laptop dramatically illustrates the need for the Justice Department to finally do a serious investigation of Hillary Clinton’s and Huma Abedin’s obvious violations of law."
The FBI said most of the emails ended up on Weiner's computer because of backups from Abedin's personal electronic devices. Former FBI Director James Comey has said investigators could not prove Abedin acted with criminal intent or "had a sense that what she was doing was in violation of the law."
A November 2010 email was partially redacted due to "classified" and "confidential" information. It detailed a planned call between Clinton and Saudi Foreign Minister Prince Saud al-Faisal, where then-Secretary of State Clinton would warn al-Faisal about Wikileaks planning to release sensitive documents.
That same month, Wikileaks released the U.S. diplomatic cables leak, known as "Cablegate."
Meanwhile a special counsel investigates Trump for collusion with Russia. It has been proven that Hillary Clinton is guilty of collusion many times over. Where is her investigation?
