French presidential candidate Emmanuel Macron's campaign said Friday it has been hacked — 9GB of authentic and fake emails were posted Friday to Pastebin, a document-sharing site, from a user named EMLEAKS, according to Reuters. The campaign said this is "déjà vu" of the kind of "democratic destabilization" that took place in the U.S. last year.

Why it matters: It's less than two days before the French presidential election comes to a close, and the way that works in France includes a ban on campaigning over the weekend. The hack came hours before the ban sets in.

What to watch: The polls. Right now Macron is ahead in the Ifop-Fiducial poll 63-37 against his far-right opponent, Marine Le Pen. This sounds similar to the hacked DNC emails that have been linked to Hillary Clinton's tanked campaign. However, Macron's campaign said the emails leaked Friday aren't concerning because they show "normal" presidential campaign activity.

French President Emmanuel Macron walked through the blast-damaged streets of Beirut on Thursday, swarmed by people chanting for the fall of Lebanon's government and pleading for international aid.

Why it matters: Lebanon is at a breaking point. Its economy was collapsing and its government hardly functioning — all before a massive explosion destroyed swathes of the capital city, including its vital port.

Even if Friday's jobs report shows a big number, it is becoming clear hiring slowed and likely even reversed course in July and real-time indicators suggest the employment situation worsened into August.

Driving the news: Payroll processor ADP's monthly jobs report showed private companies added 167,000 jobs last month, well below the 1.2 million expected by economists and far below June's 4.8 million jobs added.
