Berlin, October 5 (RHC)-- The transparency group WikiLeaks will soon release new documents in regard to the U.S. presidential elections, according to its founder, Julian Assange.
The one million documents, set to be released before the Election Day, would also be about three other governments, Julian Assange said on Tuesday, describing the new batch as “significant” to the 2016 race.
"The material that WikiLeaks is going to publish before the end of the year is of... a very significant moment in different directions, affecting three powerful organizations in three different states as well as ... the U.S election process," he told journalists gathering in Berlin.
Data previously leaked by the group targeted the heart of the Democratic Party leading to resignation of Debbie Wasserman Schultz as the chair of the national committee.
Speaking via a video link from the Ecuadorian Embassy in London to mark the group’s 10th anniversary, the WikiLeaks founder said he did not intend to “harm” the campaign of the Democratic Party nominee Hillary Clinton by such releases.
"There has been a misquoting of me and Wikileaks publications ... (suggesting) we intend to harm Hillary Clinton or I intend to harm Hillary Clinton or that I don't like Hillary Clinton. All those are false," he said.
The Democratic National Committee e-mail leak by the group showed the body had not acted neutrally and against Clinton’s rival, Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders. The leak included e-mails from seven key DNC staff members, dating from January 2015 to May 2016.
In one of the emails, dated May 2, 2016, DNC press secretary Mark Paustenbach wrote to communications director Luis Miranda about how to make the U.S. media portray Sanders’s campaign as one in “a mess” in the primary votes ahead of the November 8 election
