Julian Assange reveals truth over Clinton emails and Russia accusations

JULIAN ASSANGE has categorically denied WikiLeaks files implicating Hillary Clinton came from Russia - but said she will still win the US election.

In a bombshell interview with Russia Today, Assange who famously does not reveal his sources, dismissed claims from the Clinton camp Putin's country was behind leaked emails.

The WikiLeaks founder who is currently living in the Ecuadorian Embassy in London assured the public troves of US Democratic Party and Clinton work and staff emails released this year were not linked to the Russian Government.

 Speaking exclusively to journalist John Pilger, Assange denied Clinton's claims.

He said: “The Clinton camp has been able to project a neo-McCarthyist hysteria that Russia is responsible for everything. Hillary Clinton has stated multiple times, falsely, that 17 US intelligence agencies had assessed that Russia was the source of our publications.

"That’s false – we can say that the Russian government is not the source.”

WikiLeaks uploaded more than 30,000 emails from Hillary Clinton’s private email server, while she was Secretary of State.

Then 20,000 emails sent to and by members of the US Democratic National Committee were revealed.

Most recently WikiLeaks posted over 50,000 emails connected to John Podesta, Bill Clinton’s chief of staff, and a close associate of the current presidential frontrunner.

The Homeland Security Department and Office of the Director of National Intelligence said in October they were “confident” the Russian government “directed” the leaks.

Moscow has rejected the accusation, with presidential press secretary Dmitry Peskov calling the claims “nonsense”.

Assange, speaking from the Ecuadorian Embassy, where he has been for four years, accused Mrs Clinton of being a pawn of behind-the-scenes interests, while raising further questions over her health.

He said: “Hillary Clinton is just one person. I actually feel quite sorry for Hillary Clinton as a person, because I see someone who is eaten alive by their ambitions, tormented literally to the point where they become sick – for example faint – as a result of going on, and going with their ambitions.

"But she represents a whole network of people, and a whole network of relationships with particular states.”

Despite his doubts over the Democratic presidential candidate Assange said Trump will "not be permitted" to win.

The full Russia Today interview will be aired on Saturday.
