WikiLeaks is preparing to release "different types of documents" from more than one political organization before the election, founder Julian Assange said Thursday, adding that the organization holds more information than it has been able to read.
"I don't want to give the game away, but it's a variety of different types of documents from different types of institutions that are associated with the election campaign," Assange said in an interview on Fox News. "Some quite unexpected angles … are quite interesting. Some, some even entertaining."
WikiLeaks in July released around 20,000 emails obtained from the servers of the Democratic National Committee. Since then, reported breaches of the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee, Hillary Clinton's presidential campaign, and the nonprofit Clinton Foundation have also come to light. Assange previously insinuated that WikiLeaks holds at least some of it, and was planning to release it.

Assange added that the trove is so substantial that the organization is still debating how to release it. "We have to assess the veracity. We have a perfect 10-year record thus far in never getting it wrong. We want to keep that reputation, understand how things should be formatted, what media we should be involved in, what is the best way to stage it out. Do we accumulate everything that's been published all in one batch? Or ... do we do several batches?
"I mean in the case of the DNC leaks, for example, we pushed as fast as we could to try and get it in before the Democratic nomination conference because obviously people had a right to understand who it is that they're nominating, and what sort of process was involved," Assange said. "And the same is true here for the U.S. electoral process."
Pushed on whether the information could be a "game changer" in the presidential election, Assange demurred. "I think it's significant. You know, it's, it depends on how it catches fire in the public and in the media."
