"We whipped up a crazed hornet's nest atmosphere in the Hillary Clinton camp and all the organizations that are backing her," Assange was quoted as saying by the UK newspaper Daily Express.
The paper reported that Assange made a telephone call in to the Conferencia Internacional de Software Libre in Argentina on Wednesday, though the video from the conference was released just on Thursday.
The call ceased the speculation over Assange’s possible death or arrest, heated by his two-week period of silence.
On October 23, Wikileaks released a statement, saying Assange had not published any documents related to the US election campaign from the Embassy of Ecuador.
Assange has been residing in the Ecuadorian Embassy in London since 2012 to not be extradited to Sweden, where he was accused of rape after WikiLeaks begun to release documents in its possession.
