WikiLeaks just punk’d the internet by turning its rumored Clinton reveal into an anniversary event
In fact, not only did Assange not reveal anything, he actually tried to play down the notion that he was engaging in a feud with Clinton. The organization noted that the idea that it was helping the Russian government was spin by Clinton defenders trying to downplay revelations in the emails it release from the Democratic National Party.
Assange and others pointed out that WikiLeaks has published large numbers of documents about Russia. He said that, personally, he bears no animosity toward Clinton.
“There’s been a lot of misquoting of me and WikiLeaks on this,” he said. “In this case, the notion that I hate Clinton or that I intend to destroy her. All those are false. They come about because here defenders are trying to personalize our publications.”
