Wikileaks is offering cash to anyone who catches the outgoing Obama administration destroying public records.
The group tweeted its offer on Tuesday night.

“We are issuing a US$20,000 reward for information leading to the arrest or exposure of any Obama admin agent destroying significant records,” Wikileaks posted on Twitter.
The offer came on the same night founder Julian Assange appeared on Fox News to once again say Russia was not behind the group obtaining emails of Democratic National Committee staffers and Hillary Clinton campaign chairman John Podesta.

“We can say, we have said, repeatedly over the last two months, that our source is not the Russian government and it is not a state party,” Assange told Sean Hannity.
In December, the Daily Mail reported a former British ambassador received the documents in a Washington, D.C. park from a Democrat whistle blower.
“Neither of [the leaks] came from the Russians,” Craig Murray, former British ambassador to Uzbekistan, told the paper. “The source had legal access to the information. The documents came from inside leaks, not hacks.”
Murray said the leaker(s) was motivated by “disgust at the corruption of the Clinton Foundation and the tilting of the primary election playing field against Bernie Sanders.”
