Whistle-blowing website WikiLeaks has canceled a major announcement about US Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton, citing “security concerns.”
Julian Assange, the website’s founder who has long taken refuge at the Ecuadorian Embassy in London, was supposed to make the announcement from the embassy’s balcony on Tuesday.
However, NBC News reporter James Rodriguez said in a tweet on Sunday night that the event has been called off. “Due to security concerns at the Ecuadorian Embassy, Julian Assange’s balcony announcement on Tuesday has been canceled, per @wikiLeaks,” he said.
Assange’s group has leaked nearly 20,000 emails from the Democratic National Committee (DNC) over the last months, uncovering an insider effort within the Democratic Party to rig the primary campaign against Clinton’s rival, Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders.
