The erstwhile founder of WikiLeaks is still locked behind closed doors, living in London’s Ecuadorian Embassy in an effort to avoid a prison cell in Britain. However, that doesn’t mean he’s not hard at work trying to unmask all of our government’s (and other governments’) dirty secrets. Of late, the WikiLeaks team has been singularly focused on Hillary Clinton’s evil deeds, and on Wednesday he made sure to let America know that they weren’t done with Clinton yet.
Mrs. Clinton has spent years attempting to hide all of her sins and erase any evidence of her misdeeds, but the folks at WikiLeaks, thanks to some technical savvy and hard work, have found many of the sordid tidbits and are now releasing some of the juiciest bit for the world to see.
Julian Assange: Well, we’re working around the clock. We have a lot of material (INAUDIBLE) and by a major DNC revelation which is now lead to the resignation of five officials at the DNC including Debbie Wasserman Schultz late last week. So, you know, it’s a complex business what we do. We have to assess the voracity, we have a perfect ten-year record so far of never getting it wrong. We want to keep that reputation. Understanding how to keep things should be formatted, what media we should be involved in. What is the best way to stage it out? Do we accumulate everything in one batch or do we consider – – several batches. We decided to do several batches.
Megyn Kelly: But what, I mean, give us a general sense. I mean, are we going to see it before the November 8th election?
Julian Assange: Yes, absolutely. I mean in the case of the DNC leaks, for example, we pushed as hard as we could to try to get it in before the Democratic nomination conference because obviously people have a right to understand who they’re nominating and what’s involved and the same is true here for the U.S. electoral process, people involved in that election, have the right to understand who it is they’re electing.
Megyn Kelly: Now, you’ve seen it, right? Can you tell us how significant you believe it is? I mean compare its significance to what we saw released by Wikileaks in July.
Julian Assange: Well, I don’t want to scoop ourselves. We have a lot of pages of material, thousands of pages of material. So, while I have not read every single page, in doing that, I didn’t want to give the game away. But there’s a variety of different types of documents from different types of institutions that are associated with the election campaign, some quite unexpected angles that are, you know, quite interesting, some even entertaining.
