In an interview with Sean Hannity on Thursday, WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange denied that hacked emails from the Democratic National Committee and Hillary Clinton’s campaign chairman John Podesta were from the Russian government.
“Our source is not the Russian government,” Assange told “The Sean Hannity Show.”
“So in other words, let me be clear,” Hannity asked, “Russia did not give you the Podesta documents or anything from the DNC?”
“That’s correct,” Assange responded.
Assange’s assertion stands in sharp contrast to that of the Office of the Director of National Intelligence, which claimed “the Russian Government directed the recent compromises of e-mails from U.S. persons and institutions, including from U.S. political organizations.”
Assange also admitted that WikiLeaks “received about three pages of information to do with the Republican National Committee and Trump during the campaign, but it was already public somewhere else.”
The WikiLeaks founder then warned that the U.S. government, corporations and even private citizens are vulnerable to cyberattacks.
“Everything is almost completely insecure now,” he said. “Computer systems have become so complex that it is not possible to understand all the parts, let alone secure them. It’s just impossible.”
