Wikileaks founder Julian Assange has garnered more political support from the political Left than Right, but he’s no friend of theirs either.The FBI isn’t the only organization investigating Hillary Clinton – Wikileaks has their eyes on her as well.
The Blaze reports: WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange says his team’s upcoming leaks about Hillary Clinton could be enough to “proceed with an indictment,” but he’s not so confident that will actually happen.
“We have upcoming leaks in relation to Hillary Clinton,” he told Britain’s ITV. “We’ve accumulated a lot of material about Hillary Clinton.”
Assange has been a long-time critic of Clinton, who he once said “has a long history of being a liberal war hawk.” However, he is not convinced any amount of information will actually lead to an indictment of the former secretary of state.The WikiLeaks publisher told ITV anchor Robert Peston that, “unfortunately,” U.S. Attorney General Loretta Lynch is “not going to indict” Clinton, adding, “That’s not possible that could happen.”
Instead, Assange argued, the FBI will not indict the Democratic candidate in exchange for favors, should she win the White House in November. “The FBI could push for concessions from the new Clinton government,” he said.
However, Assange did say there is “very strong material, both in the emails and in relation to the Clinton Foundation.Watch the interview below:
Hillary Clinton has been feeling the wrath of the hackers recently. A hacker identified only as “Guccifer 2.0” hacked the DNC’s records, showing them to be in the tank for Hillary and their strategies for taking down Sanders, among other secrets.
How did they manage to leave themselves open for a hack? Who knows – maybe they were using a private email server or something.
