Assange announced the planned release schedule in a video address at the end of a press conference in Berlin on Tuesday morning, where the organization was celebrating its tenth anniversary.

Assange said WikiLeaks plans to release 1 million documents over the next 10 weeks, spanning three governments and covering topics such as the USA election, the war, arms, Google, oil and mass surveillance. "The upcoming publication is significant to the USA elections".

WikiLeaks plans to release documents pertaining to Google and the US electoral system over the next ten weeks, the organization announced on Tuesday, October 4.

Julian Assange is defending WikiLeaks after a story asserted its goals and Russia's are similar.

He took refuge in the Ecuador embassy which granted him political asylum in 2012 after he lost a legal battle to block his extradition to Sweden.

Assange, 45, has denied WikiLeaks was being used by Russian officials trying to sow chaos in USA politics and help Donald Trump win the presidency. "In this particular case, the misquoting has to do with that we intend to harm Hillary Clinton or that I intend to harm Hillary Clinton, or I don't like Hillary Clinton - all those are false".

Said her campaign had falsely suggested that accessing WikiLeaks data would make users vulnerable to malicious software.

For weeks Donald Trump supporters had been waiting for WikiLeaks to publish documents they hoped would doom Clinton's chances in November. "They are two people that are tormented by their ambitions".

The WikiLeaks editor-in-chief, whose appeal against a European warrant for his arrest was recently rejected, also revealed plans about changes to the way the group is organized and funded.

Assange says he fears extradition to the United States. There, he faces a rape allegation and the prospect of extradition to the USA where investigators want to question him about espionage charges, according to the article.

While True Pundit published the report first which claimed Clinton once asked during a State Department briefing, "Can't we just drone this guy?"

Mr. Assange and his allies used the Berlin event to remind the world of its revelations in the last decade: abuse at US detention camp at Guantánamo Bay; US diplomatic cables and other files about Washington's wars in Iraq and Afghanistan.
