I haven't seen an instance of him ever lying about his leaks so I don't see why he would do that now. Especially since he has released over 650,000 documents on Russia and Putin in the past, many of which were critical of Putin and resulted in several books (also critical of Putin) being written using the information.
WikiLeaks has released over 650,000 critical documents relating to Russia under Vladimir Putin.
In 2010, the outlet promised to release a major dump of sensitive Russian documents that would embarrass Putin. The WikiLeaks spokesperson said the cables led to “many stories and books about corruption in Russia and subsequent court cases and successful asylum claims.”
You took that statement almost entirely from WikiLeaks own statements.
The signals coming from Moscow, however, suggest that the Russian reaction will not be as reserved as America's. So is WikiLeaks really ready to take on the world's more callous states?
It's certainly talking the talk. In an interview published on Tuesday, Oct. 26, in Russia's leading daily newspaper, Kommersant, WikiLeaks spokesman Kristinn Hrafnsson said that "Russian readers will learn a lot about their country" after one of the site's upcoming document dumps. "We want to tell people the truth about the actions of their governments."
WikiLeaks never released that "bombshell" on Russia at it was characterized. The files they are referring to are the Syria Files and this nonsense that they were critical of Russia is something that only WikiLeaks is saying.
I'm not accusing of you plagiarizing WikiLeaks btw or even copy-n-pasting them — I'm saying that the purported "facts" in the statements in your OP come straight from WikiLeaks itself. You're repeating them as though you know them to be true because you put way too much trust in WikiLeaks.
That's what I was trying to illustrate. I wasn't trying to offend you.
