Clinton leaks could come by next week: Assange

Clinton leaks could come by next week: Assange

Washington, Sep 7 (IANS) WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange said leaks on Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton and other American politicians were coming “reasonably soon” and that information “teases” could drop as early as next week.

“The first batch is reasonably soon. We are quite confident about it now,” Politico reported on Tuesday citing Assange as saying in an interview.

Assange opted not to provide specifics on a release, but added that the organisation “might put out some teasers as early as next week or the week after”.

In an August interview, Assange promised to leak “thousands” of document pages pertaining to Clinton, the Democratic National Committee and the presidential election, adding that he anticipated it would have a “significant” impact by November 8, Politico reported.

In the wake of a massive hacking breach of the DNC and the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee in July, the threat of another release of damaging documents has loomed large in the minds of Democratic operatives, according to analysts.

Democrats have reportedly feared for months that an information dump by Wikileaks could cause waves in an increasing bout between Clinton and her Republican rival Donald Trump, Politico added.
