Julian Assange, the founder of Wikileaks, recently said that he was going to make a major announcement on Tuesday, but he was forced to cancel it after “security concerns” arose, which made Hillary Clinton quite happy since many believe it’s going to be the long-awaited “October surprise.” However, she’s probably not too happy any more.
Assange was originally going to make his announcement from the balcony of the Ecuadorian embassy in London, where he’s been granted sanctuary for years; however, “security concerns” forced him to cancel the original event. Some speculated that news of Hillary Clinton wanting to “drone” Assange led to him not wanting to expose himself publicly, which may or may not have been the case, however, an ominous tweet from his organization seemed to suggest it.

But things have since changed.
More from Heat Street:
After canceling a planned announcement in London, Wikileaks founder Julian Assange is now planning to appear via video link Tuesday morning at Wikileak’s tenth anniversary celebration in Berlin. He’s a last-minute addition to the roster of festivities taking place this week in Germany.
Wikileaks used its Facebook page to confirm that Assange would speak at the event, which takes place at 3am Eastern time.
Sources close to the event tell Heat Street that Assange may be planning to release some new information his organization has obtained about the U.S. Democratic Party. But Heat Street has yet to receive independent confirmation that Assange plans to dump information specifically on Hillary Clinton.
The news that Assange plans to appear (remotely) in Berlin comes after Wikileaks abruptly canceled a much-anticipated announcement in London that was to be made from the balcony of London’s Ecuadorian Embassy, where Assange has sought sanctuary for years. The cancelation was first reported by NBC News. According to NBC’s Jesse Rodriguez, the announcement was canceled due to “security concerns”.
There had been widespread anticipating that Tuesday’s announcement might have been Assange’s long-promised document dump on Hillary Clinton.
According to @wikileaks, Julian Assange will appear via video link at Berlin press conference on Tuesday AM

Some may not think this is too big of a deal, but they’d be wrong. For months, Assange has promised to release damning information about Clinton and the Democrat Party, and he’s promised to do so before the election because he feels that voters need to know what’s going on.
Tuesday would be excellent timing for the information dump with the election only weeks away. Let’s pray that Assange comes through and does the job the American media refuses.
