Julian Assange, the exiled founder of WikiLeaks, is about to release more damning emails from Democratic presumptive nominee Hillary Clinton's stint as secretary of state.
This past weekend, the globally infamous whistleblower told ITV's "Peston on Sunday" that his site indeed has enough unreleased Clinton emails to potentially lead to an FBI indictment recommendation.
He did not, however, specify an official release date.
Assange, who is currently living in London's Ecuadorian embassy, has never been shy about his distaste for the former first lady. As a self-proclaimed devout Libertarian dedicated to dismantling what he considers global malevolent forces – authority, the intelligence agencies, and the military industrial complex – Clinton embodies everything Assange politically loathes.

On Feb. 9, he referred to the former New York senator as a "liberal war hawk" who "lacks judgement and will push the United States into endless wars which spread terrorism" on his TwitLonger blog platform.
Then on March 16, WikiLeaks launched a searchable archive of 30,322 of Clinton's emails and email attachments sent to and from her homebrew server while she was secretary of state.
In spite of mounting evidence that Clinton did indeed break federal law by using her private email to send classified information, Assange told ITV on Sunday that he doesn't think an indictment will ever happen.
He cited what amounts to cronyism…
"[Loretta Lynch is] not going to indict Hillary Clinton, that's not possible. It's not going to happen. But the FBI can push for concessions from a Clinton government," he said.
Essentially, a "Clinton concession" would mean an admittance of wrongdoing on her part – once she becomes Commander-in-Chief, of course.
Julian Assange's latest criticism of Clinton follows an accusation he made last Tuesday that Alphabet Inc. (Nasdaq: GOOG: GOOGL) – formerly known as Google – has long been working to put Clinton in the White House. The excommunicated whistleblower noted that in 2015, former Google CEO Eric Schmidt launched "The Groundwork" – a startup specifically designed to get Clinton elected.
Unfortunately, this sort of Internet preferential treatment has been all too common during the 2016 presidential race.
On May 9, news broke that former Facebook Inc. (Nasdaq: FB) employees were routinely ordered to suppress conservative news sites. Around the same time, shocking video evidence surfaced that Twitter Inc. (NYSE: TWTR) was also actively censoring user content based on political bias.
