(CNN)Wikileaks founder Julian Assange said Tuesday his whistleblowing website might release “a lot more material” relevant to the US electoral campaign.

Assange was speaking in a CNN interview following the release of nearly 20,000 emails stolen from the Democratic National Committee by suspected Russian hackers.

However, Assange refused to confirm or deny a Russian origin for the mass email leak, saying Wikileaks tries to create ambiguity to protect all its sources.

“Perhaps one day the source or sources will step forward and that might be an interesting moment some people may have egg on their faces. But to exclude certain actors is to make it easier to find out who our sources are,” Assange told CNN.

The Kremlin has rejected allegations its behind the hacking, calling suggestions it ordered the release of the emails to influence US politics the “usual fun and games” of the US election campaigns.
“This is not really good for bilateral relations,” Dmitry Peskov, the Kremlin spokesman, added.

  1. jullian probably sees himself as someone who is doing a service for the world. He does not like Clinton because the US wants to prosecute him for releasing classified military info. He waited till the convention to have maximum impact. He is trying to impact our election.

    He released US military information. Our gov’t wants to try him and send him to jail. He is hiding in the Ecuadorian Embassy imagining that he is a hero.

    He is nothing but a spy and sexual predator.

  2. If he can help prevent a.Clinton Presidency he would be my hero!
