The second part of that exclusive interview is set to air Thursday night at 9 p.m. ET on “The Kelly File,” in which Assange will talk about:
The murder of Democratic National Committee staffer Seth Rich and whether Assange believes it was because he was leaking information to his organization
His view of both Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump, including the question of what he has on Trump and whether or not that could see the light of day
The involvement of his organization and the Russians in American politics, including an assertion by him that the DNC leaks would not have seen the light of day if they were given to a news organization like the New York Times
Whether his organization is responsible for damaging material getting out and whether he feels a moral obligation to protect the innocent ensnared in some of the leaks from his group
Questions about the veracity of the 2007 video his group released from an American Apache shooting what they claimed were innocents, even though RPG/mortar rounds were found among the dead
Why exactly he is holed up, which countries want him and why -- plus the potential assassination attempt on his life earlier this week at the Ecuadorian embassy in London
"We're very interested in anything that might be a threat to alleged WikiLeak sources," he said. "We're not saying that Seth Rich's death necessarily is connected to our publication. That's something that has to be established. But if there's any question about a source of WikiLeaks being threatened, then people can be assured that this organization will go after anyone who may have been involved in some kind of attempt to coerce or possibly, in this case, kill a potential source."
Kelly said that it sounded as if he was suggesting that a man who leaked information to WikiLeaks was then murdered.
"If there's someone who's potentially connected to our publication, and that person has been murdered in suspicious circumstances, it doesn't necessarily mean that the two are connected," Assange replied. "But it is a very serious matter ... That type of allegation is very serious, and it's taken very seriously by us."

Yeah, he's definitely not ruling out that Seth Rich was the leak and all but saying 'yes'. And really, not outright denying it makes no sense unless he is using the story to bolster his exposure.

Lol. That is getting kind of silly.
