Earlier this week, the Political Insider reported on statements made by Julian Assange, founder of Wikileaks, in which he said his organization was prepared to publish e-mails that Hillary Clinton sent and received while US Secretary of State.
Assange is now predicting the e-mails they have in their possession would be enough for the government to “proceed with an indictment.”
He warns however, that no amount of evidence would lead Obama’s Justice Department to actually pursue said indictment.
U.S. Attorney General Loretta Lynch is “not going to indict” Clinton, Assange predicted, “That’s not possible that could happen.”
Still, Assange believes there is “very strong material, both in the emails and in relation to the Clinton Foundation” that could “proceed to an indictment.”

WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange says his team’s upcoming leaks about Hillary Clinton could be enough to “proceed with an indictment,” but he’s not so confident that will actually happen.
“We have upcoming leaks in relation to Hillary Clinton,” he told Britain’s ITV. “We’ve accumulated a lot of material about Hillary Clinton. We could proceed to an indictment.”
As the presidential campaigns turn toward the general election, Donald Trump and the Republican Party will use the fact that Clinton is currently under FBI investigation for her use of a private email server to their advantage. And, regardless of his political persuasion, Assange and WikiLeaks may aide the GOP in doing that.
Assange has been a long-time critic of Clinton, who he once said “has a long history of being a liberal war hawk.” However, he is not convinced any amount of information will actually lead to an indictment of the former secretary of state.

Make no mistake, Assange is no friend to America, and he certainly has no interest in serving as a watchdog for government corruption under the Obama administration. He is nothing more, as Soopermexican writes, ‘a Commie.’
In fact, in the interview he continues to disparage the FBI, saying they would barter for concessions from Clinton should she win the presidency, rather than uphold the law.
Assange further added that he believes Clinton is a “problem” for the freedom of the press, but was only willing to call Trump an “unpredictable” candidate.
Are the FBI and these leaked documents the last hope to stop a Hillary Clinton presidency – no matter how slim the odds?
