WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange told NBC News on Monday "there is no proof whatsoever" that his organization got almost 20,000 hacked Democratic National Committee emails from Russian intelligence — adding it's what's in the emails that's important, not who got them.
Three cybersecurity experts have told NBC News that the DNC's servers were hacked by Russian intelligence. But Assange said Monday that DNC servers have been riddled with security holes for years and that many sets of documents from multiple sources are now in public hands, NBC News reported.
Information in some DNC email messages led to the ouster of DNC Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz.
Assange remains in exile in the Ecuadorian Embassy in London to avoid prosecution on sexual assault charges in Sweden. He denies the charges.
