WikiLeaks Just Vowed to ‘Blow You Away’ in 2017 ‘Showdown’

WikiLeaks has promised 2017 will be an even bigger year for leaks than 2016, which saw the whistleblowing site publish thousands of documents exposing US political secrets, covert trade deals and private communications from global leaders.

“If you thought 2016 was a big WikiLeaks year, 2017 will blow you away,” WikiLeaks tweeted on Monday, giving no hints as to what may be in store.

The tweet also included a link to its website’s donation page so people can help the site “prepare for the showdown.”

It proved a very busy 2016 for the whistleblowing site, as it delivered a massive trove of documents over the 12-month period.

This included more than 50,000 emails from Hillary Clinton’s campaign chair JohnPodesta and more than 27,000 emails from the Democratic National Committee, which confirmed the DNC worked against Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders, favoring Clinton.

More US State Department cables were released, as well as documents which gave an insight into the US arming of Yemen. Text from the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP) and Trade in Services Agreement (TiSA) was also revealed.

The emails relating to the US election rocked the Democratic establishment and delivered a blow to the Clinton campaign in the lead-up to the November election.

WikiLeaks also confirmed that founder Julian Assange will take part in a Reddit Ask Me Anything (AMA) on Thursday at 14:00 GMT (9am EST). The tweet announcing the AMA contained the hashtag ‘proofoflife’, presumably referencing concerns raised by some for the WikiLeaks editor’s wellbeing.

    • Both sides have always been corrupt, this country is a republic, aka totalitarian democracy. We have a 2 party political system designed to screw most of the citizens from both ends of the political spectrum. Conservatives are only the obvious hypocrites, Liberals are the subtle, devious ones.

  1. If the information hurts Trump or the Republicans, you can be assured that Trump and Republican supporters will ignore it and attack Wikileaks.

    Same goes for Hillary (not in the game any longer) and the Democrats.

  2. When asked why he did not redact the he names of the people working for the Americans in Iraq and Afghanistan, Juliane Assange said something like fuck them, hey are helping the Americans. He has not much credibility wth me. I believe he is being shafted by the American government but he should not use his position to endanger those who hink they were doing the right thing. No I am not an American.
