In late August, Wikileaks head Julian Assange told Sean Hannity and Fox News viewers that his organization would be releasing vital information in October that could potentially derail Presidential nominee Hilary Clinton’s bid for the White House. After announcing earlier this week that he would be making a major announcement from the balcony of London’s Ecuadorian Embassy on October 4th, everyone assumed this was the bombshell the nation had been waiting for, some with dread.
This past weekend, Assange suddenly cancelled the announcement amid security concerns. The cancellation serves to create a mystery within a mystery. Prior hacked DNC email dumps have indeed provided damaging information related to the DNC’s favoring of Clinton and her campaign. This latest twist leaves people on both sides of the isle wondering what’s in the offering and when the message would be delivered. After the cancellation, no further information was provided related to whether or not the event was going to be rescheduled.
One can only imagine what Assange is privy to at this point in time. Over the past month, political pundits have been debating the potential effects of the information yet to be disclosed from the massive hacks into the DNC’s database. There are further concerns that some of the information yet to be released could have been derived from hacks perpetrated on Clinton’s infamous private email server.
While the Clinton campaign has been particularly quiet about Assange’s threats to continue releasing information, the camp of GOP Presidential nominee Donald Trump has done everything in its power to keep this threat front and center in the news. Conservatives have been pushing Assange’s group to get the information out ahead of the elections in November, assuming the information would indeed hurt Clinton’s falling numbers. According to Trump supporter Roger Stone, Hilary will be “done” once this information is released.
