Wikileaks founder and editor Julian Assange has what some would call a bitter feud with Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton and the overall corrupt system that got her the nomination. Hillary has actively been trying to extradite Assange and imprison him. This could be because the organization has been a massive thorn in her side, exposing her “secret” emails to the world, which give us a glimpse into how corrupt she really is.
Last month, for example, Assange released emails, just prior to the Democratic National Convention, that exposed how the Democratic National Committee had methodically worked against Senator Bernie Sanders to ensure Clinton would be nominated.
The revelation caused a major outcry among Sanders’ supporters who believe that the system has been rigged and Bernie never actually stood a chance. Although the emails clearly show evidence of bias and corruption on the part of the DNC, Sanders still chose to endorse Clinton, citing the democrat party’s unity the importance of opposing a Trump presidency. This has led to a lot of speculation about why Sanders really supported Hillary.
Now, Assange says that he knows the real reason why Sanders actually dropped out, and that reason is what many have suspected all along, he was threatened.
During an interview with documentary/journalist John Pilger, who plans to create a documentary about the Wikileaks founder asked:
“Julian, we cut you off earlier when you were talking about what you felt were the most significant emails that you have released. Is there any last one that you’d like to mention? And also, do you have any thoughts on Bernie Sanders? I mean what is your opinion why Bernie Sanders drop out of the race?”
Here is Assange’s response:
“Look, I think—you know, we know how politics works in the United States. Whoever—whatever political party gets into government is going to merge with the bureaucracy pretty damn fast. It will be in a position where it has some levers in its hand. And Bernie Sanders was an independent candidate trying to get the nomination through the Democratic Party and if you ask me he did get the nomination, but he was threatened to drop out.”

Assange plans on releasing more emails in the near future that show Clinton making deals with an ISIS sponsors that he hopes will lead to an FBI indictment. He also claims he has damning evidence against the Clinton Foundation and more info on Bernie Sanders as well;
“Of course we’re very interested in revealing the truth about any candidate and yes we have some material about Bernie Sanders that will be published.”
