The founder of the WikiLeaks confirmed Monday that his group has more material on Hillary Clinton, and that he’s looking to “publish it in batches” over the coming weeks.

When asked how damaging the information would be to Clinton, Julian Assange said, “it remains to be seen.”

“It is significant material, it takes a lot of work to verify the accuracy,” Assange explained. He said WikiLeaks is now in the process of trying to understand the material, and how to release it for “maximum exposure.”

Assange also refused to say whether Russia was behind the original hack of the Democratic National Committee emails, and said as a journalist, he doesn’t “reveal our sources.” Last month’s publishing of DNC emails created havoc in the Democratic Party last week, as the documents showed the DNC was eager to see Clinton defeat Bernie Sanders.

It led to the resignation of DNC Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz.

“We brought down the head of the DNC,” Assange said when asked if his group was being used by Russia to manipulate the election. “We have authentic information. The goal of WikiLeaks … is to educate the public. To turn a dark world into a lighter world.”

The WikiLeaks founder lives in the Embassy of Ecuador, where he has been granted asylum. Sweden has been trying to extradite him releated to a sexual assault case for years.

Cotton: Hillary Clinton discussed executed Iranian scientist on email

Hillary Clinton recklessly discussed, in emails hosted on her private server, an Iranian nuclear scientist who was executed by Iran for treason, Sen. Tom Cotton, R-Ark., said Sunday.

“I’m not going to comment on what he may or may not have done for the United States government, but in the emails that were on Hillary Clinton’s private server, there were conversations among her senior advisors about this gentleman,” he said on “Face the Nation.” Cotton was speaking about Shahram Amiri, who gave information to the U.S. about Iran’s nuclear program.

The senator said this lapse proves she is not capable of keeping the country safe.

“That goes to show just how reckless and careless her decision was to put that kind of highly classified information on a private server. And I think her judgment is not suited to keep this country safe,” he said.

The revelation could cause further political damage to Clinton, who was already on the defensive Sunday after commenting oddly last week that she had “short-circuited” in a statement related to her honesty about the email scandal.

Republican nominee Donald Trump seized on the statement to question her mental stability.

Iran confirmed on Sunday that Amiri had been hanged for treason. He was convicted of spying charges in a death sentence case that was upheld on appeal, according to the Associated Press.

“This person who had access to the country’s secret and classified information had been linked to our hostile and No. 1 enemy, America, the Great Satan” a spokesman for the Iranian judiciary said. “He provided the enemy with vital and secret information of the country.”
