The hacktivist group Anonymous has just released a video, and a group of information leaks aimed at taking down presidential candidate Donald Trump.

In the video, they draw parallels between the rise of Donald Trump in America and the rise of Adolf Hitler in Germany just before World War 2. They are calling on freedom loving, compassionate people to stand together against the hate, violence, and fascism that they believe Trump represents, by forming a new White Rose Society. The original White Rose Society was a non-violent group of students and intellectuals that resisted Hitler and the Third Reich in the 1940s in Germany.

In the description of the video on YouTube, they released a group of links to anonymous data dump websites, that share personal details about Trump, including names of his family members, his phone number, his legal council, his management, and his Social Security number.

As is the case with all Anonymous actions, there isn't a central leadership that can officially speak for the group with authority. At least one high-profile Anonymous Twitter account has called the validity of the information into question.

We haven't been able to verify the authenticity of some of this information, and we will update this story as more information becomes available.
