Hillary Clinton's campaign has hit back at WikiLeaks following the release of another set of hacked emails from the account of its chairman John Podesta, accusing the site of being a "propaganda arm of the Russian government" seeking to elect Republican rival Donald Trump.

This week, the whisteblowing outfit disclosed yet another large trove of allegedly hacked emails from Podesta's personal email account, offering a peek into the inner workings of the Democratic candidate's camp.

So far, the disclosures have included supposed excerpts of Clinton's speeches to private banks, a secret dossier of "hits" to use against to against presidential candidate Bernie Sanders on key issues, her aides' strategies to control her image and an exchange where longtime Bill Clinton aide Doug Band calls Chelsea Clinton a spoiled brat.

On Monday, Brian Fallon, a spokesman for Clinton's campaign fired off a series of emails accusing WikiLeaks and its founder, Julian Assange, of working on behalf of the Russian government to help elect rival candidate Donald Trump.

"You are no media organisation," Fallon tweeted at Wikileaks.

"You are a propaganda arm of the Russian government, running interference for their pet candidate, Trump."
