French presidential candidate Emmanuel Macron is having a Hillary Clinton moment after "a significant amount of data" (roughly 70,000 files) from his campaign emails have been leaked just days before the election.

Where they came from: France's election campaign commission told AP that the data is from "information systems and mail accounts from some of his campaign managers."

Why it matters: French rules prohibit candidates from campaigning for 44 hours (from Friday through Sunday, election day). This means that Macron cannot campaign or address the leaked emails before people head to the polls, but some in overseas territories have already started voting.

What they're saying: The commission urged French citizens not to spread the leaked emails around social media in order to maintain the sincerity of the vote on Sunday, but they've already shown up on 4chan.com. Le Monde, the largest newspaper in France, said it will not publish or comment on the leaked information until after the election.

On the Twitters: "Will the #Macronleaks teach us something that investigative journalism deliberately buried?" Florian Philippot, the #2 in Marine Le Pen's National Front Party, tweeted earlier today.

Jack Barsky, a former KGB spy, tells CNN in an on-set interview that it was probably the Russians: "Who else?"

Delta CEO Ed Bastian on Friday told CNN that he believes the Trump administration should move to require the use of face masks during air travel amid a surge in coronavirus cases.

The big picture: Delta already requires passengers to wear masks during its flights, but Bastian says it can be difficult to enforce that directive if passengers refuse — and he's not sure if other airlines would be on board.

President Trump's outdoor campaign rally in Portsmouth, N.H., slated to take place on Saturday, was postponed on Friday due to weather from Tropical Storm Fay, a senior White House official confirmed to Axios.

The state of play: Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany told reporters on Air Force One that the event would take place in "a week or two" instead. The outdoor rally — which had encouraged the use of face masks — was scheduled after sparse attendance at Trump's indoor comeback to the campaign trail in Tulsa.
