Bernie Sanders Threatened To Drop Out Of Race: Hillary Clinton Resorted To Extortion, Report

It was recently reported that WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange claimed that Hillary Clinton had created fears of a Republican victory to attract left-wing voters.

The WikiLeaks founder accused the Democratic presidential nominee of committing “extortion” by increasing fears of a Republican victory.

According to USA Supreme, Bernie Sanders supporters have been eagerly waiting for the next email dump from Assange, founder and editor-in-chief of WikiLeaks. Last month, Assange released hacked emails showing the Democratic National Committee officials plotting to defeat Clinton’s chief rival, Vermont senator Bernard Sanders.

Early reports stated that Assange gave word to release more devastating emails related to the Clinton Foundation. The WikiLeaks founder also warned that he has enough evidence of the former First Lady making clandestine deals with a reported Islamic State sponsor.

In an interview with Australian journalist John Pilger, Assange allegedly stated that his organization holds more info, and that they would publish everything when the time is right. He also said that some of these documents can get the former secretary of state to lose the nomination.

“Julian, we cut you off earlier when you were talking about what you felt were the most significant emails that you have released. Is there any last one that you’d like to mention? And also, do you have any thoughts on Bernie Sanders? I mean what is your opinion why Bernie Sanders drop out of the race?” asked Pilger.

“Look, I think—you know, we know how politics works in the United States. Whoever—whatever political party gets into government is going to merge with the bureaucracy pretty damn fast. It will be in a position where it has some levers in its hand. And Bernie Sanders was independent candidate trying to get the nomination through the Democratic Party and if you ask me he did get the nomination,but he was threatened to drop out!” Assange replied.

According to Sanders, he would vote for his rival Clinton in the upcoming presidential elections, reported Vanity Fair on June 24. Electing Donald Trump would be a disaster for the country in several ways, said the Vermont senator.

“Yes, yes, I think the issue right here is I’m going to do everything I can to defeat Donald Trump,” Sanders said in an interview.

However, Snopes reported that the alleged interview between Pilger and Assange did not actually take place. The publication also reported that USA Supreme is an unreliable website.

The alleged quote where Assange said that Sanders threatened to drop out of the presidential race could not be found anywhere but only on the webpage of USA Supreme. Snopes stated that if such an interview actually took place, Assange or Pilger would have also mentioned it on Twitter.
