More attacks over the weekend are attributed to ISIS inspiration, either definitively or tentatively.

Both ISIS and its jihadist rivals in al Qaeda continue to call for attacks throughout the Dar al Harb.
Turkey continues its post-coup-attempt crackdown, initiating a state of emergency and (temporarily, at least) suspending adherence to the European Convention on Human Rights. The government is also demanding extradition from the US of a Muslim cleric critical of the regime.

Wikileaks has released a tranche of documents taken from the US Democratic National Committee. They detail both donor lists (including personally identifiable information) and party emails. The latter documents excite the most outrage, particularly among supporters of Senator Sanders’s candidacy, because they appear to show close coordination between the DNC and the Clinton campaign. Consensus holds that Russian intelligence services gave WikiLeaks the documents. Why is another question. The DNC spin is that it’s because President Putin wants to see a President Trump; the RNC spin is that this is risible. DNC Chair Wasserman-Schultz took the fall for the emails, resigning over the weekend.
