The founder of WikiLeaks said the next material the site releases on Hillary Clinton could lead to the indictment of the Democratic presidential nominee.
“We have upcoming leaks in relation to Hillary Clinton,” Julian Assange told Britain’s ITV. “We’ve accumulated a lot of material about Hillary Clinton. We could proceed to an indictment.”
Assange also said there is “very strong material, both in the emails and in relation to the Clinton Foundation.”
Assange added that he doesn’t believe Attorney General Loretta Lynch’s Justice Department will allow an indictment to happen.
A long-time critic of Clinton, who he says “has a long history of being a liberal war hawk,” Assange said the FBI will not indict Clinton in exchange for favors should she win the White House in November.
“The FBI could push for concessions from the new Clinton government,” he said.
Asked about the current race for the White House, Assange said he finds Donald Trump to be somewhat “unpredictable” and believes Clinton is a “problem” for the freedom of the press.
Meanwhile, a document leaked by the hacker “Guccifer 2.0” appears to show the Democratic National Committee coordinating with Hillary Clinton from the start of the presidential campaign — just as Sen. Bernie Sanders has claimed.
A document to the DNC dated May 26, 2015 — a month after Sanders kicked off his presidential bid — declared that “our goals & strategy” are to “provide a contrast between the GOP field and HRC (Hillary Rodham Clinton).”
The document outlines ways to hit back at the GOP presidential field, such as “use specific hits to muddy the waters around ethics, transparency and campaign finance attacks on HRC.”
The DNC confirmed the breach earlier this week and blamed Russian government hackers.
