It looks like the email scandal facing the Democratic National Committee amid the presidential race is not likely to go away.
In an interview with CNN about the dump last week of 20,000 internal DNC emails, WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange said his organization has "a lot more material" concerning the US presidential election and might publish it soon.
"This is having so much political impact in the United States," he told CNN on Tuesday, also declining to confirm or deny allegations that Russia is to blame for hacking the DNC. Assange, speaking from the Ecuadorian embassy in London, added that the Hillary Clinton presidential campaign is trying to distract focus from the content of the emails by blaming the Russians.
"Perhaps one day the source or sources will step forward, and that might be an interesting moment some people may have egg on their faces," he said. But if Assange were to "exclude certain actors" now, he'd be making "it easier to find out who our sources are."
