Last night Bill Maher confronted Julian Assange in kind of an amazing interview and asked him at one point if he’s going after Donald Trump‘s tax returns now.
Assange said, “We’re working on it.”
There was some laughter and applause, but apparently enough people took him seriously for WikiLeaks to send out this clarification:
WikiLeaks isn't 'working on' hacking Trump's tax-returns. Claim is a joke from a comedy show. We are 'working on' encouraging whistleblowers
— WikiLeaks (@wikileaks) August 6, 2016
Assange and WikiLeaks are no fans of Hillary Clinton, though Assange has not spoken highly of Trump either. Last night Maher accused Assange and WikiLeaks of trying to tip the scales in order to take down the one person who can stop Trump.
