What if the FBI leaked it to him?
From Peston on Sunday (a weekly TV show in ITV in Britain):
Julian Assange, founder of Wikileaks, said on Sunday that the journalist organisation is planning to release upcoming leaks in relation to US presidential hopeful Hillary Clinton.
Speaking to Peston on Sunday, Mr Assange said WikiLeaks has further information relating to claims circulating since 2015 that Clinton had in the past used her family's private email server for official communications.Does he have this?
I do not doubt that if he has emails linked to donations to her foundation and then linked to action by the Department of State on her watch would upset a grand jury in such a way that it might indict her.
And I have no doubt that the FBI may have such information.
But how did it get to Asange?
He hacked it?
How did he know where to look?
The FBI has a history of leaking information. Its most famous such case was when Mark Felt -- passed over by Nixon for the director's job -- leaked Watergate information to the Washington Post.
But maybe Assange, sitting there in the Ecuadorean embassy in London, is a great hacker.
