WikiLeaks' Assange signals release of documents before US election

October 4, 2016 14:16

WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange said on Tuesday the organization would publish around one million documents related to the US election and three governments, but denied the release was aimed at damaging Hillary Clinton.

He said the documents would be released before the end of the year, starting with an initial batch in the coming week.

He criticized Clinton, the Democratic presidential candidate, for demonizing the group's work after a spate of releases related to the Democratic National Committee before the Democratic convention this summer.

Assange said her campaign had falsely suggested that accessing WikiLeaks data would make users vulnerable to malicious software.

But he denied the release of documents related to the US election was specifically geared to damage Clinton, saying he had been misquoted.
