    WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange said US Democratic Party nominee Hillary Clinton "is a hawk" with "the tools of legal interventionism" who seemingly wants to start wars.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) – Presumptive presidential nominee from the US Democratic Party Hillary Clinton "seemingly" wants to start wars, WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange said Tuesday via video link at the New Era of Journalism: Farewell to Mainstream international media forum hosted by Rossiya Segodnya International Information Agency.

    "What we have with Clinton is someone who is a hawk but who has the tools of legal interventionism, a rhetorical cover to start the wars, and someone who seemingly wants to start them… From WikiLeaks’ perspective Hillary Clinton is a problem in terms of war and peace."

    The United States is expected to elect its new president on November 8, 2016.

    Earlier in the day, Clinton, a former US senator, former first lady and former secretary of state, reached the number of Democratic delegates needed to secure the party’s nomination, according to media reports.
