    Wikileaks founder Julian Assange case (85)

    Julian Assange said WikiLeaks was planning to publish more emails of presidential hopeful Hillary Clinton.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) — WikiLeaks is planning to publish more emails of ex-US secretary of state and Democratic party frontrunner Hillary Clinton, local media reported.

    "We have upcoming leaks in relation to Hillary Clinton … We have emails pending publication, that is correct," WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange said in an interview on ITV channel declining to reveal how many emails are on the way.

    Ex-US secretary of state used private email server while she was in the office between 2009-2013, and underway is FBI investigation to find out whether she broke the law doing so.

    In March, WikiLeaks launched an archive of more than 30,000 emails Clinton sent and received while she was secretary of state.

    Assange launched the WikiLeaks website in 2006. Since then, the site has released millions of classified diplomatic documents from around the world on espionage practices, war crimes, torture and many other human rights violations. The US charges against the whistleblower include espionage, conspiracy, theft of government property and computer fraud — for which Assange could face about 45 years in prison.

    He has been residing at the Ecuadorian Embassy since 2012 out of fear of being extradited, first to Sweden where he has been accused of sexual assault, and ultimately to the United States where he could face espionage charges for publishing secret documents through his website.
