London: Founder of Wikileaks, Julian Assange said his organisation is preparing to publish more emails Democratic Party's presumptive presidential nominee Hillary Clinton sent and received while she was the the secretary of state.
Assange’s comments was made during an interview on British commercial network, ITV on Sunday, the Guardian reported. “We have upcoming leaks in relation to Hillary Clinton … We have emails pending publication, that is correct,” Assange said.
He did not specify when or how many emails would be published. Clinton is currently under FBI investigation to determine whether she broke federal law by using her private email in sending classified information.
WikiLeaks launched a searchable archive in March of 30,322 emails and email attachments sent to and from Clinton’s private email server while she was secretary of state. The 50,547 pages of documents are from June 30, 2010 to August 12, 2014, and 7,570 of the documents were sent by Clinton, who served as secretary of state from 2009 to 2013.
Assange, a Clinton critic, said she was receiving constant personal updates on his situation. He said it was highly unlikely that the US Attorney General, Loretta Lynch, would indict Clinton. “She’s not going to indict Hillary Clinton, that’s not possible. It’s not going to happen. But the FBI can push for concessions from a Clinton government,” he said.
He has also attacked Clinton as a “liberal war hawk”, claiming that WikiLeaks had published emails showing her to be the leading champion in office to push for the overthrow of Muammar Gaddafi in Libya, despite Pentagon reluctance.
