WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange reiterated Russia was not the source of Democratic documents released over the summer and accused the Obama administration of trying to delegitimize Donald Trump's White House victory.

Assange's comments came during an interview with Fox News' Sean Hannity, which is set to air on Tuesday night.

"We can say, and we have said repeatedly over the last few months, that our source is not the Russian government and it is not a state party," he told Hannity.

Assange went on to say President Obama was focused on blaming the Russians for releasing the documents in an attempt to discredit the incoming Trump administration.

"They'e trying to delegitimize the Trump administration as it goes into the White House," Assange told Hannity.

"They are trying to say that President-elect Trump is not a legitimate president.

"Our publications had wide uptake by the American people, they're all true. But that's not the allegation that's being presented by the Obama White House."

The Hill notes that in December, Assange had told Hannity the documents his group received looked "very much like they're from the Russians" but added his source was not them.
