Hillary Clinton deliberately whip up hysteria about the alleged involvement of Russian hackers to hack computer systems of the National Committee of the Democratic Party (DNC), to blacken her opponent in the presidential race, Donald Trump, whose ex-secretary of state campaign blames secret ties with Moscow, said WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange.

"She (Clinton) jumped at the McCarthy hysteria about the Russian and uses it to Trump demonizing campaign" - Assange said in an interview with broadcaster Fox News.

He recalled that there is no evidence linking Moscow to cracking DNC systems.

"Reports from Staff Clinton allegations that all around are Russian agents is very discouraged", - said Assange.
