Speaking to Fox News host Sean Hannity from the Ecuadorian embassy in London, where he lives under asylum, Assange said any suggestion his organisation was given thousands of emails by hackers aligned with the Russian state to influence the election was "absolutely false.""If you read their statements carefully you will see they don't actually say that," he said, referencing the joint intelligence release on 29 December when the US made one reference to its belief that Wiki Leaks' disclosures were "consistent" with Russian-directed efforts."They don't have the evidence that Wiki Leaks is involved in that way," Assange countered."Now why am I confident about that?Well, because there is one person in the world, and I think it is actually only one, who knows exactly what is going on with our publications, and that's me."Previously, the Washington Post reported that US intelligence had "identified individuals with connections to the Russian government who provided Wiki Leaks with thousands of hacked emails from the Democratic National Committee and others."The question of sourcing, something Wiki Leaks has traditionally never commented on, has plagued the organisation ever since the FBI and CIA made the theories public.Archaeologists have discovered a 2,500 year-old lost city in Greece.The city's fortress walls, towers and city gates (pictured) can be seen from the air.
He said: 'It puts a person in huge peril because they are not allowed to claim, as a partner, on his estate.Need to track a flight arrival or find airport parking?Find that perfect place to eat at your connecting terminal before your next flight departs?The Wiki Leaks founder added that, ultimately, the continued focus on Russia is an attempt to "delegitimise" Donald Trump by tainting his incoming administration with links to clandestine interference in the outcome of the election.He also slammed the decision of Democratic Party officials to "harp on" about alleged Russian hacking. "They will seize on this and harp on it for the next four years. It's the same reason why they lost the election."Instead of focusing on substance, they focused on other things which they think are short-term wins, but they're not strategic, a little comment by Trump here and there, for example, or this attempt to say how outrageous it is that the American public received true information before an election."Incoming President-elect Donald Trump continues to doubt any assertion from US intelligence that hackers working with Russia influenced his ascent to the White House.
