Asked by Hannity how soon the new information would be released, Assange responded, “The first batch is reasonably soon, we’re quite confident about it now, we might put out some teasers – I don’t want to promise anything because you have to see how the formatting goes – but we might put out some teasers as early as the next week or the week after.”
New revelations from Wikileaks are widely expected to represent the much anticipated “October surprise” for the 2016 presidential election, although the information could arrive weeks in advance.
Last month, Assange told Megyn Kelly that the new material on Clinton could swing the outcome of the election “if it catches fire” and that the American people “have a right to understand who it is they’re electing”.
As we previously reported, establishment media outlets are already gearing up to blame the Wikileaks data dump on Russian hackers in an attempt to neutralize its impact.
Elsewhere in the interview, Assange pointed out how Hillary Clinton brazenly lied to the FBI when she claimed she couldn’t remember what a (C) stood for on classified documents.
“In fact we have already released thousands of cables by Hillary Clinton. Here she is “Clinton” see, that’s her signature. With a “c” in brackets right there. We have thousands of examples where she, herself has used this “c” in brackets and signed it off. And more than 22,000 times that she has received cables from others with this “c” in brackets,” said Assange as he held up an example to the camera.
