Whistleblowing organisation WikiLeaks has been releasing a series of emails from Hillary Clinton's campaign chairman John Podesta
Julian Assange has insisted that hacked emails from a top aide to US presidential candidate Hillary Clinton are not from “state parties”.
Whistleblowing organisation WikiLeaks has been releasing a series of emails from Ms Clinton's campaign chairman John Podesta which have featured in the bitterly fought election campaign against Donald Trump.
The Democrats have questioned the authenticity of the WikiLeaks releases and said the emails were hacked as part of an effort by the Russian government to influence the election.
Mr Assange, who has been living inside the Ecuadorian Embassy in London for over four years, said in a statement: “WikiLeaks' sources for the Podesta emails currently being published are not state parties.
“We have independently authenticated the emails. WikiLeaks has a decade-long, perfect record in the accurate authentication of leaked documents.
