Assange says Wikileaks would release more on U.S. elections

Julian Assange says his organization Wikileaks plans on releasing more documents throughout the 2016 U.S. election.

Assange said the Clinton campaign is accusing Wikileaks of working with the Russians as a way to distract people from the documents, according to TheHill.com.

Assange said:

“What we have right now is the Hillary Clinton campaign using a speculative allegation about hacks that have occurred in the past to try and divert attention from our emails, another separate issue that WikiLeaks has published."

The Clinton campaign had blamed Russian hackers for stealing emails from the DNC servers, and doing it to benefit the Trump campaign.
