WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange said Saturday that "'we didn’t lose, Russia won' narrative" has "doomed" the Democrats and called on core supporters to "start a new party since the party elite shows no signs that they will give up power."

"Without the 'we didn't lose, Russia won' narrative, the party's elite and those who exist under its patronage would be purged for being electorally incompetent and ideologically passe," Assange said in a statement released via his Twitter account.

The post was first reported by The Washington Examiner.

Last July, WikiLeaks published the emails hacked from the Democratic National Committee and Hillary Clinton's campaign during the presidential election.

Clinton has repeatedly attributed her loss to such hacks, as well as Russian meddling during the campaign.

In January, the nation's intelligence community concluded that WikiLeaks and other operatives were being used by Russian spy agencies "to release U.S. victim data obtained in cyberoperations publicly" to help tilt the election in favor of President Donald Trump, the Examiner reports.

Assange has denied any WikiLeaks collusion with Moscow on the DNC emails.

While Assange also cites dwindling Democratic interest in the issues facing whites and men – by "conspicuously" promoting "racial and sexual-identity politics" – he zeroes in on Russia, the subject of several federal and congressional investigations.

"The Trump-Russia collusion narrative is a political dead end," he said. "Democratic senators who have seen the classified intelligence … are forced to admit that there is no evidence of collusion.

"Without collusion, we are left with the Democratic establishment blaming the public for not liking the truth about what Hillary Clinton said to Goldman Sachs and blaming their own base for not liking what they said in their own emails about about fixing the DNC primaries."

The party cannot address real issues facing Americans, Assange said, because "the Russian collusion narrative has consumed all its energy, and it is entangled with many of the same groups behind Trump's policies."
