In a podcast interview, WikiLeaks head Julian Assange characterized his site’s most recent series of leaks as showing “all sorts of illegal actions by the CIA.”
In the same interview for the “Intercepted” podcast, Assange accused the CIA director of slamming him “to get ahead of the publicity curve.”
The comments came at the beginning of the interview conducted by Jeremy Scahill of The Intercept, as the two discussed CIA Director Mike Pompeo’s recent speech calling out WikiLeaks as a “nonstate hostile intelligence service.”
“In fact, the reason Pompeo is launching this attack is because he understands we are exposing in this series all sorts of illegal actions by the CIA, so he’s trying to get ahead of the publicity curve and create a pre-emptive defense,” Assange said.
