Julian Assange jokes about leaking Trump’s tax returns

WikiLeaks next mission might be Donald Trump’s taxes.

HBO’s Bill Maher asked WikiLeaks Editor-in-Chief Julian Assange Friday night about his group’s release of Democratic National Committee e-mails days before the convention.

“Why don’t you hack into Donald Trump’s tax returns?” the GOP-hating talk-show host queried.

“Well, we’re working on it,” Assange replied.

But WikiLeaks on Saturday morning made a U-turn.

“Claim is a joke from a comedy show. We are ‘working on’ encouraging whistleblowers,” WikiLeaks tweeted.

The nonprofit journalistic organization published thousands of e-mails from top Democratic officials, showing the party tried to undermine Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders in the primary race.

The leaked missives led to the resignation of DNC Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman-Schultz and spokesman Luis Miranda.

Maher accused Assange of working with Russia to hack the Democratic National Committee servers to “put your thumb on the scale and basically f–k with the one person who stands in the way of us being ruled by Donald Trump.”

But Assange insisted that the source of the hack was “the Democratic party.”
