The administration of incumbent President Barack Obama, accusing Russia of meddling in the American elections, wished thus to deny the legitimacy of the elected head of state Donald trump, says WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange. His words are quoted by the newspaper the Hill.
“They are trying to say that trump is an illegal President,” he explained.
At the same time, Assange could not clearly answer the question, did the publication of WikiLeaks the outcome of the elections of the President of the United States. He suggested that the results changed despite pre-polls, which had predicted Trump defeat, in consequence of the statements of the Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton and head of her election campaign John Podestà.
Assange also said that WikiLeaks, which is based on the publication of classified information of governments and politicians of the various countries, is not cooperating with Russia or any other country. “Our source — not the state”, — said the founder of the site.
