Assange: ‘Unexpected’ Clinton campaign leaks coming


WikiLeaks expects to release information with some “unexpected angles” regarding Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton’s campaign ahead of the general election, the organization’s founder, Julian Assange, said Wednesday.

{mosads}”I think it’s significant. You know, it depends on how it catches fire in the public and in the media,” Assange told Fox News.

“I don’t want to give the game away, but it’s a variety of documents from different types of institutions that are associated with the election campaign, some quite unexpected angles, some quite interesting, some even entertaining.” 

In July, WikiLeaks published a trove of nearly 20,000 emails that appeared to show top officials at the Democratic National Committee planning ways to undermine the presidential campaign of Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.).

Earlier this month, the WikiLeaks founder said his organization is also looking to get any insider information about Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump.

“If anyone has any information that is from inside the Trump campaign, which is authentic, it’s not like some claimed witness statement but actually internal documentation, we’d be very happy to receive it and publish it,” he said in an interview aired Wednesday on NPR’s “Morning Edition.”

Assange also said on NPR that there are two “pretty much reviled candidates” in the race for the White House.

“[It] is generating a desire by various sources, inside and outside campaigns, to contribute information to WikiLeaks and the rest of the news media,” he said.
