    Wikileaks has abruptly canceled a much-anticipated announcement on Tuesday, according to NBC News. The announcement had been expected to be founder Julian Assange’s long-promised document dump on Hillary Clinton.

    NBC’s Jesse Rodriguez reported that the Tuesday announcement — which was to come from the balcony of London’s Ecuadorian Embassy, where Assange has sought sanctuary for years – was canceled due to “security concerns”.

    Due to security concerns at the Ecuadorian Embassy, Julian Assange's balcony announcement on Tues has been cancelled


    Wikileaks has not said when it will now make its “announcement.”

    Assange appeared on Fox News last month, repeating his assertion that Wikileaks has damaging documents on Clinton and suggested WikiLeaks may soon release “teasers.” More than three weeks later, that release has yet to take place.

    Clinton’s more fervent opponents have hoped for weeks that the promised document dump would be an “October surprise” – damaging and revelatory emails or the like — and inflict a mortal wound on her campaign. There’s no evidence however that such damaging information even exists.

    History has shown that balconies are not the ideal venue for a press announcement

    It doesn't even matter. I think Joe Biden is waiting in the wings and would fill in if asked to take over for Hillary. The DNC would have to make some rule changes but I don't think anyone would object. Tim Kaine would also go along. The Democrats would do whatever is necessary to make sure Donald doesn't get elected.

    I think the millions who voted for bernie might object. No one voted for biden, and millions voted for bernie, so why should biden get the spot?

    No, the vp candidate would then take over if Hillary had to drop out. Nobody voted for Biden.

    I always thought Biden was their secret weapon but your right I haven't taken into consideration the Bernie supporters. They would still need a VP if they moved Kaine to President spot. I really don't know if Kaine can beat Trump in the general election.

    He would have slaughtered Hillary in the primaries. All the power brokers in the Democratic party begged him to run because they dislike Hillary so much.
