London, June 14 (RHC)-- Julian Assange, the founder of the whistleblower website WikiLeaks, says that his organization will soon release new e-mails related to U.S. Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton.
During a TV interview from London, where he is hold up in the Ecuadorian embassy, Assange said: “We have upcoming leaks in relation to Hillary Clinton, with e-mails pending publication." He did not specify when or how many e-mails would be published.
In March, WikiLeaks launched a searchable archive of more than 30,000 e-mails sent to and from Hillary Clinton’s private e-mail server while she was secretary of state. The documents are from June 30, 2010 to August 12, 2014, and include more than 7,500 documents sent by Clinton.
Assange and his organization have been staunch critics of Clinton as they uncover her role in Libya and other interventions by the U.S. during her tenure as Washington’s top diplomat.
In light of the Orlando, Florida shooting over the weekend, WikiLeaks pointed to Hillary Clinton’s role in the rise of the Islamic State group.
Hillary Clinton is currently facing an investigation by the Federal Bureau of Investigation over allegations that she used her private e-mail account to conduct official communications despite being repeatedly warned of such practices. Assange, however, said he doubted that she would be charged.
The WikiLeaks founder has been confined to the Ecuadorean embassy in London since July 2012, when he sought asylum to avoid extradition. Assange has been threatened with arrest by British police, even though he has been granted formal asylum by Ecuador.
