With countless hours of media, and Clinton campaign, speculation and
accusations that the source of hacked Wikileaks Democratic emails
including the Podesta files, is none other than Russian president
Vladimir Putin, either directly or indirectly, Julian Assange has
decided to close the book on that particular loose end, and as RT
reports, in a John Pilger Special, to be broadcast by RT on Saturday
courtesy of Dartmouth Films, Assange categorically denied that the
troves of US Democratic Party and Clinton work and staff emails released
this year have come from the Russian government.

"The Clinton camp has been able to project a neo-McCarthyist hysteria
that Russia is responsible for everything. Hillary Clinton has stated
multiple times, falsely, that 17 US intelligence agencies had assessed
that Russia was the source of our publications. That’s false – we can
say that the Russian government is not the source," Assange told the
veteran Australian broadcaster as part of a 25-minute interview.

Assange spoke with Pilger at the Ecuadorian Embassy in London, where he
has been for four years, and accused the US presidential candidate of
being a pawn of behind-the-scenes interests, and voiced doubts about her
physical fitness to take charge of the White House.

"Hillary Clinton is just one person. I actually feel quite sorry for
Hillary Clinton as a person, because I see someone who is eaten alive by
their ambitions, tormented literally to the point where they become sick
– for example faint – as a result of going on, and going with their
ambitions. But she represents a whole network of people, and a whole
network of relationships with particular states."

Over the past nine months, WikiLeaks uploaded over 30,000 emails from
Hillary Clinton’s private email server, while she was Secretary of
State. This was followed by nearly 20,000 emails sent to and by members
of the US Democratic National Committee, exposing the party leadership’s
dismissive attitude to Bernie Sanders, and his outsider primaries campaign.

Finally, last month, WikiLeaks posted over 50,000 emails connected to
John Podesta, Bill Clinton’s chief of staff, and a close associate of
the current presidential frontrunner.

A preview of the upcoming interview below. The Homeland Security
Department and Office of the Director of National Intelligence posted a
joint statement in October, claiming they were "confident" that the
Russian government "directed" this year’s leaks. Moscow has rejected the
accusation, with presidential press secretary Dmitry Peskov calling the
claims "nonsense," while Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova
said the "public bickering with Russia" before the US election is
probably a "smokescreen" to draw the voters’ attention away from serious
domestic issues.
