According to the activist, the elites deprived the party of energy when they concentrated their efforts on "hysteria surrounding Russia."
The WikiLeaks founder called such an approach a "political dead end," as there is no evidence of any connection of that kind.

Assange also noted that hysteria about alleged Russian interference in the US presidential election led to a situation wheres other problems like class inequality, health issues and high crime rates are being ignored.
"The Democratic base should move to start a new party since the party elite shows no signs that they will give up power," Assange wrote.
In July 2016, WikiLeaks published data from the DNC's email servers. The US accused the Russian government of masterminding the theft of data. The Russian government has denied the allegations, while the platform founder Julian Assange also denied Russia's involvement in the materials publication.
