WikiLeaks, the Internet whistleblower that recently leaked sensitive U.S. diplomatic cables to the world, has something similar up its sleeve with a major bank, says the company’s founder Julian Assange.
Assange tells Forbes little of what it will release on the unidentified bank, other that the institution in question is one of the largest in the United States.
A massive treasure trove of documents will be unveiled, and they will not be pretty for the institution.
“It will give a true and representative insight into how banks behave at the executive level in a way that will stimulate investigations and reforms, I presume,” says Assange.
“For this, there’s only one similar example. It’s like the Enron e-mails.”
U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton has said WikiLeaks’s recent publishing of classified communications was an “attack” on not just Washington but its allies as well.
“This disclosure is not just an attack on America's foreign policy interests. It is an attack on the international community,” says Clinton according to the AFP Newswire.
“We are taking aggressive steps to hold responsible those who stole this information.”
The White House also slammed WikiLeaks and vowed action.
“WikiLeaks and people that disseminate information to people like this are criminals, first and foremost,” says White House spokesman Robert Gibbs.
Attorney General Eric Holder has said there was an "ongoing criminal investigation," according to AFP.
