Julian Assange dodged questions about Russian hacking in US election


WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange addressed the Reddit audience on Tuesday in a video but dodged questions about allegations that his website released documents that allowed Russian officials to meddle with the U.S. election.

He did, however, debunk a circulating claim that Wikileaks has intentions of developing a database of verified Twitter users, including journalists and politicians.

Last week, the verified Twitter account WikiLeaks Task Force tweeted, "We are thinking of making an online database with all 'verified' twitter accounts & their family/job/financial/housing relationships."

The tweet has since been removed.

Continuing on the topic of Twitter, Assange described Twitter as a "class hierarchy" between those who are verified and those who aren't. 

Assange provided a few comments in the Reddit thread, but mainly answered questions via a live Twitch feed, which has been archived here.
