"We have a great many upcoming publications. the material WikiLeaks is going to publish before the end of the year is of significant moment, affecting three powerful organisations in three powerful states, as well as the information previously referred to about the U.S. electoral process", said Assange.

During the announcement, Assange denied a dislike for Clinton but didn't specify whether the documents would be damaging to her campaign.

The organization WikiLeaks held a press conference to celebrate the organization's tenth anniversary in Berlin amid intense speculation that Assange was going to release data which could torpedo Hillary Clinton's campaign.

WikiLeaks hopes to be publishing documents "every week for the next 10 weeks", Assange said. "That's false", he said.

It trumpeted having released 10 million documents over the course of a decade, boasting 10 billion words and averaging 3,000 documents per day.

Wednesday@HillaryClinton is done. #Wikileaks. WikiLeaks did not disclose the source of the emails, but the leak was published one month after the DNC announced that its servers were compromised by Russian hackers. "We knew only what they wanted us to know".

He pledged that WikiLeaks would seek to expand its activities with extra staff and new media partnerships, with plans to hire 100 more journalists over the next three years.

In response to a question regarding his physical health, Assange said vitamin D deficiency could be an issue as it was rare for someone not to have seen the sun in four years - but, otherwise, he was healthy.

On Sept. 16, a Swedish appeals court ruled the arrest warrant Assange over a rape accusation would not be dropped. Assange denies the rape allegation and says he fears being extradited to the U.S. to face espionage charges if he leaves. That top 10 included files on Guantánamo, the Iraq and Afghanistan wars, illegal chemical dumping in Ivory Coast, a video of US military helicopter killing 18 civilians, including two Reuters employees, 250,000 diplomatic cables that arguably helped spark the Arab Spring and those exposing the extent of National Security Agency spying on foreign heads of state, including the tapping of German Chancellor Angela Merkel's private cell phone.

Those disclosures were followed by the release of millions of diplomatic cables dating back to 1973.
