    The US establishment and media are working together to stop US Republican nominee Donald Trump to become the next American president, WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange said in a special interview with John Pilger aired by RT.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) – Asked if WikiLeaks was trying to put Trump in the White House by leaking sensitive emails linked to his challenger Hillary Clinton’s campaign, Assange replied, "Trump would not be permitted to win … because he has had every establishment off his side."

    "Banks, intelligence, arms companies, foreign money, etc. are all united behind Hillary Clinton. And the media as well. Media owners, and the journalists themselves," the whistleblower went on to say.

    WikiLeaks has recently released over 44,000 leaked emails from the account of Hillary Clinton’s campaign chairman, John Podesta. The website promised to disclose a total of 50,000 emails before the US election day on November 8.

    John Pilger’s interview with Julian Assange was possible due to the courtesy of Dartmouth Films.
