Mapping the Clinton Emails

Back in March, Wikileaks released over 30,000 emails “sent to and from Hillary Clinton’s private email server while she was Secretary of State”.

I decided to make a quick map showing how emails were sent through the server, mapping the senders and recipients. This post is a quick explanation of how I did it.

First, I needed the emails. I didn’t see an official bulk download from Wikileaks, and I didn’t need all the data anyway - just the sender and recipient. It turned out to be another job for python, some good whiskey, and BeautifulSoup .

I iterated through each page of search result data (searching for anything in the “All” date range) at 200 results per page. Then, I used BeautifulSoup to parse out each record.

After I had the data, I put it into a weighted directed graph using networkx . This also let me dump the results into gexf format - the native format for use with Gephi.

Finally, I used Gephi to make the data pretty. I just applied a ForceAtlas layout, adjusted the size of the nodes by degree, and ran the automatic community detection to color each node.

Here’s the final result (click for higher res)!
