WikiLeaks has canceled an unknown announcement it had planned for this week due to security concerns, according to an NBC News reporter.

{mosads}WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange was scheduled to make an announcement Tuesday from the balcony of London’s Ecuadorian Embassy. It was expected to be connected to Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton.

However, NBC News reporter Jesse Rodriguez reported that because of security concerns at the embassy, the event has been canceled. WikiLeaks hasn’t said whether the announcement will be rescheduled.

Over the summer, WikiLeaks published a trove of emails that appeared to show top officials at the Democratic National Committee planning to undermine Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders’s presidential campaign.

Assange has promised to release more emails from the massive hack of the Democratic National Committee.

Last month, Assange said more Clinton leaks would be coming soon.

Roger Stone, a supporter of Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump, tweeted Sunday morning that Clinton’s campaign would be “done” on Wednesday because of the WikiLeaks announcement.
