Julian Assange: Wikileaks is About to Reveal Information That Could Damage Clinton, or Trump, or Both

Introduction

This article was posted on Tuesday, 12:47, UTC.

Speaking via video conference at Wikileaks’ ten years anniversary press conference in Berlin, Wikileaks founder Julian Assange announced the forthcoming, staged release of juicy whistleblowing bits that could impact the ongoing US presidential elections.

Speaking from the Ecuador embassy in London, where he has been in asylum since August 2014, Assange said that the documents released by Wikileaks “are revealing, but also the government/state reactions to the releases are revealing also.”

Assange said Wikileaks will disclose documents about Google, the US presidential election, arms trading, war, oil, and mass surveillance, The Verge reports. The whistleblowing group plans to release the documents on a weekly basis over the next ten weeks. All information related to the US presidential elections in November will be published before the election day.

A Global Army of Whistleblowers

Assange also signaled changes in the way Wikileaks is organized and funded, saying the group would soon open itself to membership, Reuters reports. He said the group was looking to expand its work beyond the 100 media outlets it already works with. “Wikileaks needs to change in order to survive and thrive,” he said. “We have engaged in a new project to recruit people across the world to defend our publications… We are going to need an army”.

“There is enormous expectation in the United States,” said Assange referring to the upcoming leaks related to the US presidential elections. “Some of that expectation will be partly answered.”

“Are upcoming publications significant in relation to the US elections? Yeah, we think they’re significant,” added Assange. “Do they show interesting features of US power factions and how they operate? Yes, they do.”

In July Wikileaks published more than 19,000 emails which, taken together, seem to suggest that the Democratic Party unfairly favored Hillary Clinton over Bernie Sanders in the Democratic primary nomination race. Debbie Wasserman Schultz, Chair of the Democratic National Convention, resigned as a result. Though the source of the leaks was not disclosed, the involvement of Russian hackers was – and still is – suspected.

Leaks more damaging for Clinton or for Trump?

Trump and ClintonOf course, the burning question is which one of the two candidates – Hillary Clinton or Donald Trump – will be more damaged from the forthcoming Wikileaks revelations. Assange didn’t elaborate. Here’s what he had to say about the two candidates:

I certainly feel sorry for Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump. They are two people that are tormented by their ambitions, in different ways.

There have been speculations, apparently fueled by sources closed to the Republican Party, that the documents soon to be released by Assange’s organization could be especially damaging and even “devastating” for Clinton. Author and media host Roger Stone, who self-describes as a Libertarian conservative, tweeted:

[email protected] is done. #Wikileaks.

Assange, however, denied accusations that he and Wikileaks are especially targeting Clinton and the Democratic Party. It appears that the US voters will have to wait until the documents speak for themselves.

Whichever way it goes, the citizens are entitled to receive full, unadulterated and undoctored information about the candidates that they are about to choose for the highest office. It seems likely that Assange and Wikileaks will play, once again, an important role.
