WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange is promising “significant” new material to be released on the U.S. election in the coming weeks. Assange acknowledged the anticipation of a bombshell release in a lengthy address to reporters, but declined to say whether the upcoming leaks would tilt the election toward Trump or Clinton.
“There is enormous expectation in the United States,” Assange stated. “Some of that expectation will be partly answered; but you should understand that if we’re going to make a major publication in relation to the United States at a particular hour, we don’t do it at 3AM.”
Assange, speaking by video link to an anniversary news conference in Berlin, said Tuesday that WikiLeaks plans to start a series of publications this week, but wasn’t specific on the subject matter.
Assange stated that he hopes “to be publishing every week for the next 10 weeks” and the leaks include “significant material” on war, arms, oil, Google and the U.S. election.
