Assange refuses to say if Russia involved in DNC hack

WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange refused to say whether a foreign government was involved in the leak of Democratic National Committee emails that were published by his anti-secrecy organization.

In an interview with NBC’s “Meet the Press” that aired Sunday, Assange repeatedly declined to say whether the source of the emails was a foreign government and called it “an interesting question” for the press.

“We don’t give any material away as to who our sources are. It’s a security matter for us as to who our sources are,” Assange said.

He did not answer host Chuck Todd’s question about whether the WikiLeaks founder is troubled by the idea of a foreign government providing him information.

“I do think it’s an interesting question, of course, as to who our sources are,” Assange said. “But as a source-protection organization that many sources from across the world of many different types rely on to protect their identity, their rights, to communicate the truth to the public. And that’s all we’re talking about here: communicating the truth.”

When asked whether Assange hopes the leaks lead to the election of Republican nominee Donald Trump as president, Assange said that is “irrelevant” and “that’s not why we publish.” He added: “We don’t have any concern as to whether Hillary is elected or Trump is elected.”
