Hillary Clinton leaks by Julian Assange

WASHINGTON: (APP) WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange has warned that his anti-secrecy campaign will release new documents concerning Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton , which could be "significant" for the election.

Speaking to Fox News on Wednesday, Assange, who has been sheltering in the Ecuadorian embassy in London since 2012 while fighting extradition, said WikiLeaks was combing through thousands of pages of material.

A variety of documents from various institutions that are associated with the election campaign had yielded "some quite unexpected angles, that are quite interesting, some even entertaining," he said.

Assange reported the documents would "absolutely" be released before the November 8 election.

Asked whether the leaks would be a game changer for the vote, Assange said: "I think it's significant. It depends on how it catches fire in the public and in the media."

Ahead of the Democratic National Convention last month, WikiLeaks released nearly 20,000 emails gleaned by hackers who apparently raided the accounts of seven DNC leaders .
