WikiLeaks founder and editor-in-chief Julian Assange is no stranger to controversy.
Now he says he has a huge surprise in store — and it could completely shake up the presidential election in November.
Assange said on Wednesday that his WikiLeaks organization plans to release “significant” information tied to the campaign of Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton.
Asked if the data could be a game-changer in the election, the controversial whistle blower told Fox News, “We have a lot of pages of material, thousands of pages of material. I don’t want to give the game away, but it’s a variety of different types of documents and different types of institutions that are associated with the election campaign, some quite unexpected angles that are, you know, quite interesting, some even entertaining.”

Asked by host Megyn Kelly if the information could reshape the election, Assange was coy, saying “I think it’s significant. You know, it depends on how it catches fire in the public and in the media.”
WikiLeaks’ giant data dumps have, in the past, rattled the National Security Agency, the U.S. Democratic Party, and the Saudi foreign ministry. But its spectacular mass-disclosures have also been controversial for their collateral damage.
Assange has been holed up for the past four years in Ecuador’s embassy in London, where he sought refuge when Swedish prosecutors sought to question him over sexual assault allegations.
