Julian Assange, everyone’s favorite email leaker from Wikileaks, spoke with Fox News yesterday in part 1 of a 2 part interview series. Assange stated that Wikileaks is investigating “thousands of pages” of documents related to Hillary Clinton and her campaign. He described these materials as “significant.”
Assange said that Wikileaks is set to release information that will “not be helpful” to Hillary Clinton and may force her to respond.
Mega Kelly of Fox news asked Assange when we could expect this information, he responded that they were “working around the clock” to prepare the information for release.
“We have a lot of material, thousands of pages of material. There’s a variety of different types of documents and different types of institutions that are associated with the election campaign, some quite unexpected angles that are, you know, quite interesting, some even entertaining.”
Julian Assange guaranteed that the public would see this new, damaging, information before the November elections.
Megan Kelly continued to mention that Hillary Clinton is beating Donald Trump by about 5.5 points in the polls at this time, and asked Assange if his information could be a “game-changer” in the elections. Assange responded by saying that the information would be “significant” and it depends how it would be picked up by the mainstream media.
“I think it’s significant. You know, it depends on how it catches fire in the public and in the media.”
Assange has a habit of downplaying the documents in the possession of Wikileaks prior to releasing them, preferring to let the media circles spin a whirlwind around their contents, but whatever he has certainly won’t help the Clinton campaign.
I would tend to believe that with all of the scandals surrounding the Clinton campaign and her “pay-for-play” schemes while she was Secretary, the last thing they would want to see is another embarrassing leak indicating even more corruption than the public is already aware of.
A recent attempt to break into the embassy where Assange is currently granted asylum, could have something to do with unreleased documents, which some media outlets are describing as an “assassination attempt.”
