Fox News host Sean Hannity got several great news this week when he scored an in-person interview with WikiLeaks creator Julian Assange at the Ecuadorian embassy in London.
Western Journalism stated that Fox revealed on Monday that parts of the interview will air on Tuesday evening. Assange has been at the embassy for quite a long time in order to avoid apprehension on Swedish charges, and he typically only does interviews through phone or satellite.
The interview will apparently deal with the supposed hacking of the 2016 election as well as both the Barack Obama and Donald Trump administrations.
Throughout the election, WikiLeaks published tons of hacked emails from the Democratic National Committee and Hillary Clinton’s campaign chairman, John Podesta. Previous month, Assange informed Hannity that Russia had not been their supplier when it came to the emails.
” Our source is not the Russian government,” Assange stated. “It has not come from a state party.”
Assange then expressed unwillingness about saying everything else regarding their source.
” We’re unhappy that we felt that we needed to even say that it wasn’t a state party. Normally, we say nothing at all,” he said. “We have … a strong interest in protecting our sources, and so we never say anything about them, never ruling anyone in or anyone out.”
“And so here, in order to prevent a distraction attack against our publications, we’ve had to come out and say, ‘No, it’s not a state party. Stop trying to distract in that way and pay attention to the content of the publication,'” he included.
