    The publication by WikiLeaks of tens of thousands of Democratic National Committee (DNC) emails about presidential nominee Hillary Clinton’s campaign has caused other sources to come forward, the whistleblower website's founder, Julian Assange, said Friday.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) — In July, WikiLeaks published nearly 20,000 hacked emails that apparently showed DNC members discussing ways to undercut Clinton's rival Bernie Sanders in the race for the Democratic nomination.

    "The publicity as result of our DNC publications, which caused the top five Democratic officials in the Democratic party to resign, including Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz, has led to other sources being encouraged, and so they stepped forward, and hopefully that process will continue as we continue to publish and we can see a kind of cascade of information," Assange told the Fox News Fox & Friends program.

    WikiLeaks is also willing to publish leaked material on Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump's campaign in order to better inform US citizens about their possible future leaders, Assange added.

    He also underlined the difficulty of publishing controversial material on Clinton's Republican rival due to the intrinsically controversial nature of Trump's campaign.

    In an interview aired by the Fox News earlier this week, Assange pledged to release new "significant" documents from Clinton’s campaign before the presidential elections are held in the United States in November.
