Wikileaks founder and editor Julian Assange has clear disdain for Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton and the system that got her the nomination. Last month he released emails, just prior to the Democratic National Convention, that showed that the Democratic National Committee had worked against Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders in favor of a Clinton nomination.
The revelation caused outcry among Sanders’ supporters with accusations that the system had been rigged and that Bernie never had a chance. Although the emails show evidence of bias on the part of the DNC, Sanders nonetheless endorsed Clinton, citing party unity and the importance of preventing a Trump presidency.
However, Assange says that he knows the real reason Sanders dropped out: He was threatened.
