WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange said his company has collected quite a dossier of information on former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton – so much that he could severely hamper her presidential run if he released it all.
And releasing it all is a plan that’s in the works, Assange told a British television station.
“We’ve accumulated a lot of material about Hillary Clinton,” he said, AOL News reported. “We could proceed to an indictment.”
Assange, who has been living in Ecuador’s London Embassy since seeking asylum in August 2012, faces extradition to Sweden for rape allegations if he leaves. He also faces charges in America for leading sensitive information about U.S. intelligence and security via the WikiLeaks organization he founded in 2006.
In his recent statement about Clinton, he also said he didn’t think any document dump would lead to actual charges. Why not?
The present attorney general, Loretta Lynch, wouldn’t pursue them, he said.
But Assange did think the FBI would be able to use the information he was planning to release to wrangle law enforcement concessions from the Clinton administration, if she were elected president, he said.
