This week has only gotten worse for presumptive democratic nominee Hillary Clinton as international hackers have leaked crucial information on the Clinton Foundation and the DNC.

It was revealed on Tuesday that hackers, allegedly linked to the Russian government, breached the Clinton Foundation's records. According to Bloomberg News, they "sought data from at least 4,000 individuals associated with U.S. politics – party aides, advisers, lawyers and foundations…"

These are the same hackers who are believed to have infiltrated the Democratic National Committee servers last week, after which they released DNC opposition research on Donald Trump.

The Clinton Foundation has not revealed what documents were stolen.

But meanwhile, in what appears to be a separate breach, hacker Guccifer 2.0 leaked 250 files allegedly prepared by DNC staffers yesterday.

The top-secret data revealed Clinton's darkest secrets, including tax returns, personal financial disclosure reports, and her over-the-top spending habits.

Guccifer 2.0 claims to have no affiliation with the Russian government, though. The supposed Romanian hacker admitted to Vice that he doesn't like "Russians and their foreign policy" and hates "being attributed to Russia."

His hack also unveiled some concerning information about Clinton Foundation donors. According to reports, the hack showed the DNC was preparing to fight off rumors that Ian Telfer, the founder of the Russian uranium company UraniumOne, made over $2 million worth of undisclosed donations to the foundation.

The New York Times reported that if Telfer's donations were not disclosed, then it would have been in clear violation of an "agreement Mrs. Clinton had struck with the Obama White House to publicly identify all donors."

Though the foundation denied any wrongdoing in not disclosing the donation, it was revealed that the secret contribution was only a small fraction hidden from a larger "$145 million given from nine uranium investors involved in the deal approved by Hillary Clinton to transfer 20% of all U.S. uranium to the Russian government."

The probe also exposed how the DNC had been preparing to defend Clinton from attacks on her foundation. A document called "Clinton Foundation Vulnerabilities Master Doc FINAL" revealed their plan.
