Days before convention, cache of 19,000 emails released show officials scoffing at Hillary Clinton’s former rival and questioning his religion.

Several emails posted by Wikileaks show Democratic National Committee (DNC )officials scoffing at Sanders and his supporters, and in one instance questioning his commitment to his Jewish religion. Some emails show DNC and White House officials mulling whether to invite guests with controversial backgrounds to Democratic party events.

Earlier this year, Russian hackers stole material from the DNC’s email system, the party and an investigating cybersecurity firm acknowledged last month. Wikileaks did not reveal how it acquired the files, though a hacker who goes by “Guccifer 2.0” has also claimed to have breached the party’s system.
