WikiLeaks will release "thousands of pages" of "significant" documents regarding Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton prior to the Nov. 8 election, Julian Assange told Fox News' Megyn Kelly.
During a Wednesday night interview — the first of two parts — the co-founder and editor of Wikileaks told Kelly "we’re working around the clock" to verify the material.
WikiLeaks released nearly 20,000 emails hacked from the Democratic National Committee last month, which led to the resignations of several officials, including former chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz, after the data indicated favoritism toward Clinton over former presidential candidate Sen. Bernie Sanders (Vt.).
When Kelly asked Assange if he believes the upcoming release will be an election "game changer," he steered clear of the characterization: “I think it’s significant. It depends on how it catches fire in the public and in the media."
Regarding specifics about the documents, Assange said, "I don’t want to scoop ourselves" and described them as "different types of documents from different types of institutions that are associated with the election campaign" with "some quite unexpected angles that are ... quite interesting, some even entertaining.”
