WikiLeaks says it doesn’t collaborate with states
WikiLeaks claims to have many thousands of sources but does not collaborate with states in the publication of documents, its editorial board said late Sunday.
The statement by the board of the whistleblowing site assumes significance after the administration of U.S. President Barack Obama charged that it and other sites had released allegedly hacked emails under the direction of Russia.
WikiLeaks has leaked mails from the Democratic National Committee that showed that the Democratic Party’s national strategy and fund-raising committee had favored Hillary Clinton over her rival Senator Bernie Sanders for the Democratic Party nomination. The website has also published mails from the account of John Podesta, chairman of Clinton’s campaign for the presidential election, which could prove to be embarrassing to the candidate.
