WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange dismissed the allegations of Hillary Clinton’s camp that Russia was responsible for the revelations made by the whistleblowing website, which recently published a bunch of emails discrediting Clinton’s campaign.
“The Clinton camp has been able to project that kind of neo-McCarthyist hysteria that Russia is responsible for everything. Hillary Clinton stated multiple times, falsely, that 17 US intelligence agencies had assessed that Russia was the source of publications. That’s false. We can say that the Russian government is not the source,” Assange said in a special interview with John Pilger aired by RT.
In March, WikiLeaks created a searchable archive for emails sent to and from Clinton’s private email server, while she served as US secretary of state from 2009 to 2013. Clinton has come under significant criticism for using a private server and email address for official business during her tenure as the head of US diplomacy.
In July, WikiLeaks published almost 20,000 pages of hacked Democratic National Committee emails that appear to demonstrate a concerted effort by top committee members to undermine US Senator Bernie Sanders’ campaign in favor of Clinton.
Julian Assange feels sorry for Hillary Clinton, as she had fainted and got sick due to her ambitions, Assange said.
“I actually feel quite sorry for Hillary Clinton as a person, because I see someone who is eaten alive by their ambitions, tormented literally to the point where they become sick – for example faint – as a result of going on, and going with their ambitions. But she represents a whole network of people, and a whole network of relationships with particular states,” Assange said.
