Assange contradicts report

In response to the Washington Post article, “U.S. reacts to Russian hacking,” the publisher of the DNC documents that were released has testified to the contrary: Julian Assange of Wikileaks told Fox News in a Sean Hannity report on Jan. 3, “We can say, we have said, repeatedly over the past two months, our source of the documents is not the Russian government and it is not a state party.”

When asked about the situation, Assange commented that President Obama is not being straight with the American people, saying, “He is acting like a lawyer. If you look at most of his statements he doesn’t say that - he doesn’t say Wikileaks obtained its information from Russia, worked with Russia.”

The publisher thinks that the charges of Russian hacking are an attempt to delegitimize Donald Trump as he goes into the White House.
