WikiLeaks to release 1 million documents before US election, says Assange

Agencies, Berlin: WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange said on Tuesday the organisation would publish around one

million documents related to three governments and the US election before the end of the year.
Participating via video link in a news conference in Berlin marking the 10th anniversary of the group, Assange denied that the release of documents related to the US election was specifically geared to damage Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton, and said he had been misquoted in that regard.
He said there had been a lot of misquoting suggesting that WikiLeaks plans to harm Clinton. He said the documents would be released before November 8, the day Americans will vote to choose a new president.
Assange also signalled changes in the way Wikileaks is organised and funded, saying the group would soon open itself to membership. He said the group was looking to expand its work beyond the 100 media outlets it already works with.
He added that publications will continue even if he has to resign from WikiLeaks.
