WikiLeaks’ Julian Assange: ‘Our Source is Not the Russian Government’

WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange told Sean Hannity on his radio program Thursday that neither the Russian government nor any other government was the source of the email hacks into both the Democratic National Committee (DNC) and John Podesta, Hillary Clinton’s campaign chairman.

“Our source is not the Russian government,” Assange said, without revealing who the source was. “It did not come from a state party,” he stated.

Assange also claimed to have received three pages of information on the Republican National Committee and Donald Trump but that they didn’t release it because it was already publicly available.

However, Assange said that his releases of information are not partisan in nature and that if Donald Trump creates enemies within his administration who are willing to leak information, it may be Trump in four years facing the same onslaught of embarrassing accounts in four years that Hillary did during the presidential campaign.

“Would you have published the same thing it it was about Donald Trump?” Hannity, a Trump loyalist asked Assange.

“If Donald Trump makes a lot of enemies on the inside in his time in office then he could well face the same thing in four years time,” Assange answered.

So is that an unintended slip, that it was someone on the inside that leaked either the DNC or Podesta emails or both? Assange said repeatedly during the interview that WikiLeaks, founded ten years ago, never releases their sources. However, if it’s not Russia or another country’s government, then that does seem to make an insider the most likely source.
