WikiLeaks Founder Says Big Leak on Hillary Clinton Could Lead to Indictment

WikiLeaks founder, Julian Assange, says this year he is going to leak information on Hillary Clinton that could be extremely damaging to the presumptive Democratic nominee.

Speaking to a British TV station, Assange said, "We've accumulated a lot of material about Hillary Clinton. We could proceed to an indictment."

Assange went on to say he doesn't think Clinton will actually face charges because he doesn't believe the current Attorney General, Loretta Lynch, will indict her, but he thinks the FBI will use the information to push for concessions from the Clinton administration, should she be elected.

While Assange did say Clinton poses a problem for freedom of the press, he stopped short of saying he would prefer to see a Trump Presidency.
