Fresno, CA — In what is sure to upset the 2016 President Election, Wikipedia has appended the biography of Hillary Clinton with as many new article citations, Gish Gallop has learned. The citations, which run the range of Ms. Clinton’s political career, are bound to provide “red meat” for Republican presidential challenger Donald Trump’s stump speeches.
“Well, I think congress should look into these,” said Donald Trump spokeswoman Katrina Pierson appearing on CNN’s Reliable Sources with Brian Stelter. “Now that these citations have been revealed, the American people deserve answers. And what do you think the odds are that Hillary Clinton will be forthright about them? I’m going to say very low.”
According to a spokesperson for Wikipedia, the popular online encyclopedia neither leaked the new citations, nor had any political motivations in updating Hillary Clinton’s page.
“We do not ‘leak’ anything,” said Wikipedia spokesman Anton N. Mott said in an email response. “Our contributors research and write the articles based on both primary and secondary sources. The fact that Ms. Clinton’s page was updated was just how the process works, which is constantly evolving as new information appears.”
According to the conservative watchdog group Judicial Watch, as many as 26 new citations were added to Hillary Clinton’s biography section including such suspicious links to the name of her first dog “Goldwater,” and her favorite cafeteria food while attending Wesley College.
“No one is above the law,” said Judicial Watch’s director of research and investigation Chris Farrell. “And the leaking of these new citations by Wikipedia, which is known to slant articles towards liberal causes. We will be filing a motion to get the names of the article contributors released to Congress for further review.”
The Clinton campaign said it did not comment on ongoing investigations.
