Hillary Clinton accuses Wikileaks

Washington, October 17: Former US presidential candidate Hillary Clinton has claimed that the Democrats candidate was a source of WikiLeaks and its leader Julian Assange for the defeat of the US presidential election.Hillary Clinton has told an Australian state broadcaster that WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange was a tool of Russia in his release of hacked emails that hurt the U.S. Democratic presidential nominee s campaign.In an exclusive interview with Four Corners, Mrs Clinton alleged Mr Assange colluded with a Russian intelligence operation to disrupt the 2016 US election and damage her candidacy for president.At a time when Wikileaks exposed more than two thousand e-mails, "There was a concerted operation between WikiLeaks and Russia and most likely people in the United States to ... weaponize that information, to make up stories, outlandish, often terrible stories that had no basis in fact ... which were used to denigrate me, my campaign, people who supported me, and to help Trump," she said.Clinton was complaining about WikiLeaks publication during the 2016 election campaign of politically damaging emails from the Democratic National Committee
