WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange is refusing to discuss whether Russia had any involvement in a trove of emails from the Democratic National Committee leaked to his organization ahead of the party’s convention.
In an interview Sunday on NBC’s “Meet the Press,” Assange said WikiLeaks has “a perfect track record” of providing accurate information and “never revealing our sources.”
“The difficulty that WikiLeaks has, of course, is that we can’t go around speculating on who our sources are. That would be irresponsible,” Assange said in the interview from Ecuador’s Embassy in London, where he has sought protection.
“We don’t give any material away as to who our sources are,” he added. “It’s a security matter for us as to who our sources are.”
“What I can say categorically is that we have published proof that the election campaign of Bernie Sanders was sabotaged in a corrupt manner by Debbie Wasserman Schultz and others within the DNC,” Assange said. “We can say that categorically.”
