Wikileaks founder Julian Assange says his organization could put out ‘teasers’ of the explosive material he claims it has on Hillary Clinton as soon as next week. ‘The first batch is reasonably soon. We’re quite confident about it now,’ he told Fox News’ Sean Hannity on Tuesday evening. He also accused Clinton of ‘lying’ to the FBI about misidentifying the classified markings she saw in several of her emails. Assange has been promising another damaging document dump since Wikileaks published emails in late July that showed Democratic Party officials colluding to keep Clinton’s primary opponent, Bernie Sanders, from winning the nomination. He says Wikileaks has ‘quite a lot’ of information in its possession, some of which is ‘significant,’ and it will be released in batches for maximum impact.. A second email release has yet to manifest itself with just two months until the election, though. Pressed by Hannity to provide a timeframe for the next breaking news event, Assange gave a vague reply. ‘Tricky question, Sean,’ he said, before telling the Fox host, ‘We might put out some teasers.’ Assange told Hannity, ‘I don’t want to promise anything because you have to see how the formatting goes. But we might put out some teasers as early as the next week or the week after.’ He went on to excoriate Clinton for telling the FBI that she didn’t know what the lower case ‘c’ in parentheses meant in emails she received while she was secretary of state. According to notes from her interview with the authorities that were released by the FBI last Friday, Clinton said she believed them to be paragraph markers, given that the emails lacked a classified heading. The ‘(c)’ in those emails stood for ‘Confidential,’ which is a classification level. ‘Everyone in positions of government and in Wikileaks knows it stands for classified confidential,’ Assange told Hannity. The Wikileaks boss, whose been posted up at the Ecuadorian embassy in London for four years as he seeks to clear his name in a Swedish rape case, said Clinton would have known that. His organization has already released thousands of cables, he said, where she signed off on documents that included the marking. ‘It’s absolutely incredibly for Clinton to lie. She is lying about not knowing what that is. But it’s a bit disturbing that James Comey goes along with that game The source of Wikileaks’ information on Clinton is unknown. Government officials and the Democrat’s presidential campaign believe that Russia instigated the cyber theft. Assange won’t say. Clinton has stopped short of claiming that Russia’s government is meddling in the presidential election to aid Republican candidate Donald Trump, who has taken foreign policy positions that are aligned with the Kremlin’s. She came close on Monday but had to quit her response when a coughing fit cropped up. When she resumed questioning 20 minutes later she declined to speculate further on the foreign adversary’s desire to keep her out of office. Assange came at Clinton in a double-barreled assault last week, calling the former first lady, senator and cabinet official ‘a demon’ who ‘will put a noose around our necks’ if she takes the Oval over her insinuations that Russia is using Wikileaks as its puppet. He says Wikileaks is not favoring Trump over Clinton. While the organization has some information on him, ‘it’s actually hard for us to publish much more controversial material than what comes out of Donald Trump’s mouth every second day,’ he told Fox in August.
