French law forbids the mainstream media from reporting election-related news within 48 hours of the vote, but social media has no such restrictions so allegations can go round and round without being disproved. Unlike the DNC/Podesta leaks, which AFAIK have never been shown to be faked in any way, this leak does seem to have fakes mixed in with real, boring emails. One tech news website is claiming that a PDF showing Macron applying for a Cayman Islands bank account is faked; apparently the forger forget to merge layers correctly.
(Actually, reading the article it seems that this PDF came out on 4chan before the email leak in response to a claim by Le Pen in the presidential debate this week that Macron had an offshore account in the Bahamas)
